Great calc. Exactly on numbers. 1800 rent + 3200 is super lean life style for 4 people(meat or chicken two times a week max) without car. Comfort for 4 pers. starts 8 K and up income for family

The university of Eindhoven declared, they will only hire females and no males at all for many jobs. Later the decision was cancelled by the highest Dutch court. But still anyway, a lot of sexists are in the city!!! Unless you are a female it is not recommended.
