Student Yuwei Wang is following the Master's programme Biomedical Sciences. 

What do you like about the programme and why?

This programme is very flexible. I could just choose what I want. Meanwhile, my mentor also gives me sufficient help and advice when I cannot make up my mind. There are plenty of group assignments to do in almost every course, which is definitely different from my previous education. But I like it a lot because working in a group gives me opportunities to learn from other students and also to learn how to work together.

What do you think about the atmosphere in class?

Dutch students are always very warm-hearted. Every time when I am in the group, they always stick to English so I can join in. Because of the culture, sometimes they could be quite straightforward. But I really like it because it makes us work more efficiently.

Are you currently doing an internship?

My internship is about dementia progression.

Why do you think is it important that there are people out there with this degree?

The Master's programme gives people more independence to think and work compared to a Bachelor's programme. It is like a buffer for people to enter society and complete more difficult tasks in their future work. And one more important thing is that the Master's programme goes deeper into one certain field, which allows you to be more specialised in one area and this is very crucial in researching.

What are your plans once have received your Master's degree?

Studying my Master’s programme teaches me how to think critically, which is very crucial in researching. I want to apply for a PhD position after I receive my Master's degree. I find a lot of pleasure in research.
