I chose Tilburg University for my master study because it is a very reputable university in my field, Marketing. It was also one of the best choices I had in terms of financial expenses.
Tilburg University is well known throughout Europe and has alumni all over the world. This makes it easy to be considered as a candidate when you apply for both international and local jobs.
When I made the decision about my master study, the most important fact was the reputation university, not the country or the city. However, the Netherlands is a great country to live in.
A big advantage of living in Tilburg is the location. It is very close to the Belgium border. Moreover, there are cheap flights to all over Europe from Eindhoven airport, and Tilburg is only 40 mins to this airport. Since I am from a large city, it was a disadvantage for me to live in a small city.
