    The Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences programme gave me the chance to follow my own interests

    The Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences programme gave me the chance to follow my own interests and develop the skills that are needed for a career in science. BCN is an unique programme in many ways, starting with its size. I've experienced it as a comparably small program with a very good teacher-student ratio, and close interactions between students and teachers. This allowed me to start working on a relevant network early on in my career.

    The personal way of educating has made my studies in Gronigen very enjoyable. I love the fact that there is a lot of emphasis on the idea of a group. Every year a cohort of students start their studies together, share the same initial set of courses and are encouraged to work as a team.

    The structure of the programme is very well thought through. Your start with introductory courses, which provide a good overview of the fields of behavioural and cognitive neurosciences. In the first year you also get the chance to follow a minor research project, which provides a great opportunity to gauge your abilities in conducting research. The second year gave me the freedom to follow my  own interests and to specialise in a field that I would like to do a future PhD project on.

    The perfect programme for a career in academia

    I chose the BCN Research Master because it is interdisciplinary and full of opportunities. I am part of a research team for one semester every year, in which I can focus solely on gaining skills and first-hand experience in conducting research. I enjoy having a say in the process, whilst being taught by researchers themselves during both the research internship and the preceding courses.

    I have the chance to develop my skills in whichever direction I want them to go. But it is not only the research experiences I gain; BCN is more than just a Master's degree programme. It is a community of students and researchers who meet for social events and exchange experiences during the courses and internships. You never feel alone or lost in your work, and there is always someone to help you out if you are stuck. Everyone interacts on a first-name basis, and thanks to the small number of study groups, everyone is fully included in the programme and its process. It’s the perfect programme for someone that wants to start a career in academia, or is thinking about doing so. For me, it convinced me that academia is the direction I want to go, and thanks to BCN, the whole world is open for me after I graduate!
