Student testimonials

"Hey, my name is Tabio and I did the webclass during my time abroad. It was still doable: although I had little time and finished one assignment late, I could still hand it in and finish the webclass successfully. Additionally, I got a good imagination of the broadness of the programme and get a feeling for my own level thanks to the detailed feedback" Tabio - 1st year GRL student

"Hey, I’m Thies and I did the webclass last year. For me it was an important step in my process of exploring the study I wanted to study. I worked on the webclass while working  my PWS. Even though I had very little time during the week, I still managed to finish the webclass in a good manner. After all the webclass confirmed to me that I wanted to do GRL!" Thies - 1st year GRL student
