    Breda is an international city. Almost the entire city speaks English and are welcoming. As an international student, it is easy to find jobs, place to socialise, and friends. The nightlife of the city is great. You have several bars and restaurant with different cuisines. The transportation in Breda or the Netherlands in general is outstanding, and fast.

    Breda is a very cozy and lively city and it is truly an excellent experience to live here. I come from a large city in Australia (Melbourne) and I love the city of Breda. The city is altogether very small but has incredibly beautiful architecture and an abundance of great shopping areas. Not only this, but there are many cafés to be found to drink a coffee or have lunch with friends and many nice restaurants to eat at for dinner. In terms of nightlife, it is a very vibrant city at night because of the large number of students studying in Breda. Most nights towards the end of the week will always have many people in the city having drinks with friends or going out to bars or clubs.

    Breda is a magical city! In the summer time, there is so much to do outside, with all cafes, bars, venues, situated outside, with a beautiful view along the canal. There's a really nice bike ride to the lake (Haagse Beemden) which is a hotspot in the summer. The city is small, which is nice, as you can get anywhere by bike. It is a safe city, I have never felt threatened, even when riding my bike at night. I love small cities, as it quickly turns into home.

    The good thing about Breda is that you really just need a bike and you can reach every part of the city in no more than 15 minutes.
    People are very happy to help you, for example I was searching for accommodation so I was asking strangers if they somehow knew a friend who was renting a house or a room, and everyone I asked was always willing to help me and I found a solution in just a couple days.
    Transportation is very well structured, even if the university is not in the center of Breda, still is easy to reach the facilities.
