I want accomodation for my daughter wanting to stay for 3 months STARTING 1 AUG, in amsterdam to do a course in advertising media. cAN YOU SUGGEST ACCOMODATION AROUND A BUDGET OF 600 EUROS A MONTH?

Pffft, accomodation for that price will be impossible I guess.
Perhaps a suggestion is to get a camping site and stay there for 3 month's?
August still is a holiday month, but september and october must
be easier.

well shes looking to live there, so camping for 3 months while shes studying wouldnt be very practical at all...

you can look on, and other sites like that for ppl offering their rooms while theyre away, you can also get some short term rentals.

if shes studying there shes going to have the right paperwork for living there, which means youll be able to go thru a real estate agent. this i would suggest because its VERY hard to find a place to live in amsterdam, so youll need some help! €600 a month wont get you a fantastic place but youll get something decent.

Let me start by saying that this should be moved to the off-topic section, as it has nothing to do with travelling.

That being out of the way, Jax is right; finding accom in Amsterdam at that price is very difficult, especially since she arrives at the worst time of year, when all new dutch students are on the lookout for housing as well.

Given the start date, I suspect we're talking some private course, not a programme offered by a recognised university? That makes things even more difficult because it means she won't be entitled to any form of student housing at all.

Your/her best bet would be to look in the villages around Amsterdam (a place within biking distance or close to public transport, lest she spends tons on parking), or to settle for something small and half-legal in the outer districts.

A relatively useful dutch website for student housing would be Kamernet.
