I studied last year in The Netherlands and had the time of my life. It was not Tillburg, but I do know a couple people who studied there and they thought it was great. The Netherlands has some beautiful towns plus all the crazy things that the country is known for
(legal weed and hash, legal prositution). The weather was not too good and changed constantly, but England is not exactly known for it's perfect climate either.
For travelling, an advantage that England has is that Ryanair and Easy Jet have lots of flights out of there and you can fly to a lot fo places for as low as $20 round trip. Holland also has a couple Ryanair airports and Easy Jet and Basiq Air fly out of Amsterdam, but not as many flights as the England counterparts.
I really think that you will have more fun in The Netherlands. If you like to smoke and drink good beer
, you will be in heaven. Also, it is a lot cheaper than England, but certain parts such as Amsterdam are expensive.
Let me know if you have any other questions about The Netherlands as I should be able to help you out with what you need to know.
