Bachelor's Molecular Life Sciences

Eva Witlox is a Master's student Medicinal Chemistry at Radboud University.

What do you like about the programme and why?

It gave me a lot of freedom to style my programme to my own wishes. I chose to mainly focus on chemistry, and I was able to fill a big part of my Master's with chemistry related subjects. Next to this, it gave me a lot of experience in the field, since I spend 90 EC (1.5 years) doing internships and working in labs.

What do you think about the atmosphere in class?

Everyone, including staff, are very friendly and willing to help.

How has the programme challenged you?

The programme has allowed me to expand the knowledge I gained during my Bachelor's at the Radboud University. By doing 2 internships, with one in the United Kingdom, I was able to develop more skills as a medicinal chemist and as a person.

How is the supervision within the study programme?

When you need help from a student advisor, they are always willing to help. Next to this, the staff is always willing to help you find an internship or guide you in the right direction.

What are your plans once you have received your degree?

I will be starting a business in sustainable research, named Sustainables.

Why did you choose for the Radboud University?

While I was looking for a University, I went to multiple open days and found that I felt most at home at the Radboud University. Next to this, I thought that having the Radboud UMC close would be nice since my study is close to the medical field.

What do you like about Nijmegen?

It is a very green city with lots of things to do! The city centre is great for shopping and parties, while the outskirts and the campus are very green and great for sports and walking.

Which information activities do you find valuable and why?

When I chose my studies, I went to the Open Day and Student for a Day. Here I got to experience the campus and had opportunities to talk to students about their experiences with the study. For me, this helped a lot to take away my doubts.

What would you advise students when choosing a study programme?

The most important thing is to choose something that YOU like! And I think talking to students and going to open days can help to make the right choice for you.
