The Netherlands is one of the most secular countries in Europe, with nearly 50% of the country considering themselves non-religious. The Netherlands is a liberal, highly tolerant country, where the empowerment of the individual is celebrated. Because of its more liberal stance on soft drugs and prostitution, the Netherlands is a popular destination for students studying gender and women’s studies.
Because the Netherlands is considered a transportation hub in Europe, it is easy for students who study there to travel to other countries. Students in the Netherlands have an opportunity to experience a great deal of Europe.
The Netherlands is also one of the safest countries in the world, with virtually no violent crime, particularly in comparison with other European countries and the United States. In fact, the most common type of crime in the Netherlands is traffic violation! Huge wealth disparities among the populace are more or less unheard of, due to the progressive tax system.
