Being an expat can be quite a challenge
Getting your expat life up and running in the Netherlands can be a fantastic experience, but you face many challenges. In addition to settling into a busy job, you have to deal with a different culture, an unknown language and unfamiliar customs. You have to process many of these changes on your own, and that eventually takes a toll. But you're not the only one: expats in general run a risk of psychiatric problems that is twice as high as people who never move to another country. What’s more, almost 90% experience a feeling of isolation after moving abroad. Is this familiar to you? Then U-center is here to help you.
