On March 5th, the Master Your Excellent Talent event took place. Over 250 interested students attended the event to get information about the Research and Honours Master programmes of the University of Groningen.
During the evening there were presentations of the Dean of the Graduate Schools, prof. Dr. Lou Leij, and the Dean of the Honours College, prof. Dr. Hanny Elzinga. Subsequently there were various speed dating rounds in which one came in contact with Research Master, PhD and Master Honours students. The evening ended with informal drinks.
The Master Your Excellent Talent was organized for the second time and is intended as a precursor for Master Your Talent. During MYET students receive general information about the Research and Honours Master programmes, after which they can retrieve more specific and faculty information about the programme they are interested in during Master Your Talent.
