At times foreign students especially those from African nations feel like we dont belong. As said before, the Dutch actually view them as parasites who benefit from their tax and make them miss accommodation within the university proxy. All in all i had Dutch friends and they seemed O.K. and very dedicated to work. However, they lack a sense of priorities: can leave in a middle of a group discussion to go meet their lovers, then later tell their lecturer how you African did nothing in the group. You end up having problems with the Lecturers who also take the word of their children seriously. I have seen cases where foreign students get less marks than their Dutch counterparts based on a word from one Dutch student to the Lectuter. Indeed such students will not want anything to do with a second Dutch friend !! they will just hope for days to fly by and they finish their studies and go back home. The international society plays a very important role in research and rankings of most institutions, Wageningen being a good example, and it will be of great benefit id they strategize on how they work together as a community full of foreigners.
