Fernanda about Medical and Pharmaceutical Drug Innovation

Both the university and the program have exceeded my expectations!

My name is Fernanda Braga Seganfredo and I am a 4th year medicine student at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul- PUCRS. I subscribed to Science without Borders with the idea of broadening my professional horizon, living another culture and to getting to know a different research environment. I have been granted a scholarship to study one year abroad, and out of all of my options I chose the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

Since September 2012 I am enrolled as an exchange student in the master’s program Medical and Pharmaceutical Drug Innovation. My choice for this University was based on its research excellence in my area of interest. I am very happy with my choice, since both the university and the program have exceeded my expectations.

Groningen is a student city with 190 thousand inhabitants in the north of the Netherlands. It is very welcoming, safe, and with many excellent opportunities for leisure. In short: an excellent place to live.

In the past months I have learned a lot about science and high-quality research, as well as that I have developed my capacity for critical-thinking. On a personal note, this opportunity has also been very important, because being away from home and out of my comfort-zone, living in a country with a very different language and culture, has taught me a lot about myself and allowed me to embrace new values and perspectives.

Only a few months have passed, but I am already seeing many new roads and opportunities for the future.
