Kathleen Cheasty is a Master's student Molecular Chemistry at Radboud University.

What do you like about the programme and why?

I particularly like, that the programme offers a lot of space for internships.

What do you think about the atmosphere in class?

The classes have a nice atmosphere, as everyone is very friendly, and we can just ask all questions without fear of being judged.

How has the programme challenged you?

The internships are especially challenging about this programme. I was encouraged to go out and organise them myself, which was especially challenging for my internship abroad, but also a great learning opportunity.

How is the supervision within the study programme?

Supervisors are very approachable, and you can just come to them with any concerns (or ideas) and they will be really open to it.

What are your plans once you have received your degree?

I want to pursue a PhD degree after I received my Master's. Eventually, I would really like to stay in academia and be a PI for my own research group.

Why did you choose for the Radboud University?

I was at Radboud University for my Bachelor's as well; therefore, I knew I liked the atmosphere.

What do you like about Nijmegen?

It is a very pretty city; there is a beach and plenty of things to do, as well as events. Also, since it is a very green city, there's lots of vegan and vegetarian food.

Are you involved with a study association? If so, in what way?

I do judo in my free time, so I was involved there, as there are many group activities and the people there are really nice.

Which information activities do you find valuable and why?

I personally like the open days, as it gives the opportunity to really experience a University and its surroundings.

What would you advise students when choosing a study programme?

Make sure that you are interested in the courses of the university as well as the research. Ultimately, where you study doesn't matter as much as what you learn from there.
