Cost of living in the Netherlands is, in fact, higher than it is in the United States. Accommodation, gas and food costs much more in the Netherlands than the USA. Generally in Netherlands, students will have to spend about a third of their income solely for accommodation, another on food, if they haven’t opted for student meals at their university. On an average, a student will have to shell out somewhere between 700 and 1000 Euros on a monthly basis. In the USA, cost of living varies from city to city, with New York ranging to the highest. You might be interested to know, that in Holland, with an ISIC (International Student Identity Card) you can avail good discounts wherever you go, like restaurants and shops.  In general though, you can get much more with a dollar than you can with a Euro anytime.  Here’s some information about scholarships in the Netherlands for you!
