Amazing place, 10/10 would visit again.
Tips: This is a different country, so yes there is a cultural shift. But that is easy to manage given that you are open-minded and that there is a huge Indian population already here. But the best part is that you get all Indian groceries here, so you can cook anything you want from home!
Likes (Post study jobs): Amazing clubs. From academics, to parties, to social events. There is everything in Wageningen. There are students from across the globe, conscious about the environment and everything in it. Then there are students who live in a place where everyone has their own rules.
Dislikes (Internships): Amazing faculty. They love what they teach. Also, you can take whatever courses you want to take. There is no fixed curriculum. Ask them as many questions as you want and the faculty will always help you.

Wageningen is a great college to study. Totally recommended.
Tips: Dutch people are known for punctuality. I try to schedule my plans very well. I am not on any scholarships but there are a few available from the state government which have different criteria for each state. There are also Erasmus scholarships provided. I am very much happy with my student life and social life here and I can recommend the university without a second thought.
Likes (Public transportation): There are 3 the nearest bus stop, one of which is just infornt of the main campus building. Even the stop is named Campus, so transportation is not an issue here. There is actually no complaint against the transport convenience and stuff. But for a student all in all Dutch transportation is expensive.
Dislikes (Indian Food): The best option is to go to the Asian store in the city center or else you can try online shopping as well. Personally, I prefer to cook myself rather than go outside. The restaurants near campus is a fun spot to get together and have really tasty affordable food. As an Indian you won't find any authentic Indian food nearby but there, online shopping comes to the rescue!

Very nice university and place but very expensive in comparison to other European countries.
Tips: I am very happy that I got the chance to be a part of this university. But as a student who belongs to the middle class in India, I find it very expensive in the Netherlands. However, the quality of life as a student is really amazing and so is the quality of education. Also, for someone who is thinking of doing part-time job, it might be a little difficult to manage it with the extensive study schedule.
Likes (Student Life): There are many buildings specifically for the students and the whole city of Wageningen is based on students. Thus, as a student, you will find various options for yourself. Also, there are parties and fun activities every weekend so that you get to socialize with international students as well.
Dislikes (Public transportation): The public transport is very expensive even for students and sometimes there is no direct connectivity even for a short distance. Thus it's a hassle to take public transport. Also, there are extra charges if you pay from your card instead of OV chipcard ( being provided from the government). And there are some options to get subscriptions via these OV chipcard but the options are very limited.

MSc Plant Sciences at Wageningen University and Research
Tips: I absolutely love the university and the staff. The facilities are amazing and you get to learn a lot. Everyone being very nice and straightforward was a cultural shift for me but it was a nice one. I availed a scholarship from the Rajasthan Government named the Rajeev Gandhi Scholarship. It covers full tuition fees and variable living expenses depending on your family income. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my choice of the country, university and the course. I'd rate it 9/10.

Wageningen University is the most diverse place to be in.
Tips: The cultural diversity here is the most diverse place I've ever been to. The people here are very helpful, welcoming and receiving. It's a very positive environment. There are many scholarships on the official website of the University. The orange tulip scholarship is one of the most applied scholarships. It provided 25% off on the tuition fee. And on the whole view, the university has an amazing ambience for students. The courses are very interesting, and well thought and the professors are generous and kind enough to solve your doubts any time. And the country as a whole is one of the peaceful places.
Likes (Public transportation): There are buses plying every half an hour to go to the main train station. And almost all the places are well connected. There are even transport packages which reduce various costs of travelling. With the weekend pass or 40% off during off-peak hours also helps with the travel.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Usually, the internship you get is what students tend to continue working with as post-study jobs. But if you want to switch, it takes time to get the right job at times. But it also depends on the skills you've developed during the courses and your master's thesis.
