“After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Groningen, I was interested in seeing what possibilities the university could offer me on a postgraduate level. While I was interested in several law programmes, I was quite unsure of which one to choose. Talking to professors and students about possible career opportunities and fields of research during the Master’s Day really helped me make up my mind and find the right programme for me.”

- Asmo Esser, 24, Master of European and Economic Law
