Louisa Crookshanks was interviewed by the German website talentrocket.de about her experiences with studying in Amsterdam. Louisa had three main reasons for her choice: ‘I study the International Migration and Refugee Law specialization of the LL.M. at VU Amsterdam. I chose the VU because the course is completely unique. You gain an in-depth analysis of international and European migration law from several different perspectives. Further, living in Amsterdam is a dream. It is such a beautiful city and has the perfect balance of nature and liveliness, which is especially uplifting during lockdown. Finally, a Masters in the Netherlands is very affordable. At just over 2,000 euros it is dramatically cheaper than postgraduate studies in the UK or elsewhere and the Dutch government offer a number of allowances for students. The cost of living is not too expensive either, with cycling being the main and most sustainable mode of transport.’
