ACCESS Quarterly Magazine

ACCESS publishes a quarterly magazine for the international community in the Netherlands, at the beginning of March, June, September and December. The magazine is possible because of the hard work put in by our expat volunteers. You can read the magazine online, download a PDF version or pick up a copy at a local expat center or international school. ACCESS MAGAZINE


Ready, Steady Go Dutch
Who knows better about the challenges expats face when getting acclimated to the Netherlands than other expats who have already experienced the challenges? The recently released  Ready, Steady, Go Dutch is a compilation of helpful tips contributed by over 150 internationals who live, or did at one time, here in Holland. 10 short chapters take the reader through the ups and downs of relocating to the Netherlands, learning the language, finding a job and a home, and making a new life. Doctors, shops, the weather and of course cycling, are all dealt with in bite-sized quotes from the more than 150 people who have already made the move, and contributed to the book.

The project was a joint undertaking by ACCESS and DutchNews and is available for purchase here.
