What do you like about the programme and why? How has the programme challenged you?
What is really interesting about the Biomedical Sciences Master's programme is its flexibility. The students can design their own study plan, which was very new to me, and this involves a lot of freedom but also responsibility. Moreover, the courses are very fast-paced and do not have many contact hours, but to keep up with them there is self-study and assignments. In general, I have learned to be way more independent and developed time-management skills.
What do you think about the atmosphere in class?
The student-teacher relationship tends to be horizontal. There is genuine interest in the learning experience of the students. Students are asked to evaluate each course after the exam and the lecturers really take that feedback into consideration, which is amazing.
What do you find most challenging in your Master’s? Have you encountered any obstacles?
I have never learned so much in such a short time, and for that, I had to take on much more responsibility to reach my goals both in courses and internships. It is not an easy programme, but students get support from teachers, mentor, study advisors and the International Office when needed.
Have you done an internship?
I have done two research internships during my Master's, one at the Donder's Institute for Medical Neurosciences, and the other at the Human Genetics Department of the Radboudumc.
