About the challenge

Your vlog can be about anything: Dutch culture, the weather, education, finding accommodation, Dutch food, Dutch habits and so on. 

This vlog challenge is open to any international student who started studying and living in the Netherlands in the summer of 2021. 

Please upload your vlog to your own YouTube account and mark your video as public so that we can see it. Paste the URL of the video in the form below.

The challenge starts on 6 September 2021 and lasts until 20 September 2021. Our jury of Study in Holland ambassadors then selects the three lucky winners of a voucher worth € 50 from a typical Dutch store. We will announce the three winners of the challenge on Monday 3 October 2021.
