Rebecca Scarratt is a Master's student Neurobiology and Science in Society at Radboud University. In the first year of the programme Rebecca wrote a testimonial about the Master's and atmosphere in Nijmegen. 

What do you like about the Master's specialisation and why?

I like that the programme covers a wide variety of subjects, from the molecular level of the brain and synapses, to stem cell biology, systems neuroscience and behavioural neuroscience. I also appreciate that we have lots of space for electives which enable the study programme to be more tailored to each student's interests.

What do you think about the atmosphere in class?

All students that met on introduction day are very open with each other. I find it more difficult to connect to others whom I don't know yet. This is especially challenging coming from a small university.

Are you currently doing an internship?

I am doing an internship at the Donders Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and I think it is really interesting. Doing an internship teaches you a lot more about the way things are done than could ever be taught to you in a class.
