Tinbergen Institute is located in both Amsterdam and Rotterdam. TI Amsterdam is located near railway station Amsterdam Zuid and is close to VU University Amsterdam, one of the participating host universities. TI Rotterdam is located at the heart of the lively Erasmus University campus.
The Netherlands, and especially Rotterdam and Amsterdam, have a lot to offer to international students. Both cities have a lively social and cultural environment, offering numerous theaters, cafés, museums, parks, canals and other opportunities for recreation. Their environs offer more bucolic distractions, such as beaches, sand dunes, waterways, forests and wide-open spaces.
General information on studying and living in The Netherlands is provided by the NUFFIC website for international students.
