About stuying in Groningen

“I had been looking around for opportunities to study abroad in vain. On one of those days when I was checking my e-mail at an internet café in Nairobi, one of the e-mails was from my mentor at the University of Copenhagen, asking if I would be interested in doing an MSc in The Netherlands, and the answer was definitely a yes!

I really appreciate the diversity at my current department. A class of 6: 3 internationals and 3 Dutch students, it couldn’t be any better. This has been the most rewarding experience ever. I had to get used to the fact that I didn’t have to struggle to get information, computers, internet and well equipped libraries.

I have become a more confident, world class researcher.

Groningen is a wonderful city. I call it the city that never sleeps. I cannot stand the fact that I am going back to using buses. I like biking and I wish the whole world would adopt it just as we do it here in Groningen.”
