Keep in mind that the Netherlands are a small country, with Amsterdam close to Utrecht and vice versa, with the possibility to take courses in the other city as part of your program. In Utrecht there is Logic Department too.
If your emphasis is on CS and Haskell and you want to pursue a career in industry (think Stadard Chartered and the like) I think Utrecht is the thing to choose. You will get a firm background in FP. If you want to pursue a career in Logic at some university Amsterdam is probably the thing to choose.
I personally think that what a student learns depends largely on the way he manages to consume what is on offer and to choose from all the options. The fact that you are apparently asking such questions before chossing whete to go makes me feel optimistic.
emeritus from Utrecht so probably a bit biased.

Nottingham has a functional programming laboratory led by Prof. Graham Hutton and Prof. Thorsten Altenkirch : http://fp.cs.nott.ac.uk/ The programme has lots of interesting elective courses on functional programming, Logic, Mathematics etc. And also at the end of the course you do a thesis project with one of the research groups.

Currently the only options available to me are Master in Logic at University of Amsterdam and Computing Science at Utrecht. The latter has more emphasis on FP and Haskell while the former seems more concerned with the mathematical/philosophical foundations. Any thoughts or direct observations on these programmes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
