Who I Am

My name is Paul Morgenstern and I am 22 years old. I was born in New Zealand to Dutch parents so I am a strange mix of the two nationalities. I enjoy sports like hockey and swimming as well as cultured events like wine tasting and the exploration of old cities. I enjoy studying history and also love to read books. I would describe myself as an individual who is dedicated to always achieve his best but also knows how to relax and enjoy life.

Content of the Programme

The reason why I applied for the master in International Relations, Security track at the University of Groningen is because it aligned with my interests and it had a system that allowed students who had BA degrees from Universities outside Europe to apply. The master degree at the university of Groningen is fun and challenging. It is made up of research seminars, lectures about IR theory as well as a 20.000 to 25.000-word thesis and an internship at an international institution like the European Union, a Government Ministry or Embassy.

Challenging, Exciting, and Intense

If I was to summarize the programme in three words they would be challenging, exciting, and intense. With good time management I can complete all my work for the week by 4 to 5 hours per day, including weekends, but this depends on the spread of your assignments because some students are given two assignments to complete in one week so naturally they spend more time on their work in that given week.

Over all this masters at the University of Groningen is the best fit for me and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is passionate about studying International Relations.
