"My thoughts were that I couldn’t go because it was too expensive, or that they wouldn’t let me focus on what I wanted to. Yet I found that the cost for international students was the same as European students, so I was intrigued.
If someone had asked me what my plans were for university the year prior to me coming to Radboud, my answer would have been that I was doing a teaching degree at the University of PEI, in Canada. I never would have imagined that I’d be doing a master’s degree in Nijmegen, yet that is what I ended up doing. At the end of the first semester of my last year of my bachelors degree, the prof for my Christian history course sent me an email. This email was an advertisement for the Master of Theology program at Radboud University. When I went to look it over, my thoughts were that I couldn’t go because it was too expensive, or that they wouldn’t let me focus on what I wanted to. Yet I found that the cost for international students was the same as European students, so I was intrigued.
Following that, I spoke with my prof about it, before sending an email to find out more about the program. It turned out that I could indeed study what I wanted, which was Celtic and Anglo-Saxon missionaries in the Church History program. I then proceeded to apply, and was then accepted into the program. Around the same time I was accepted, some things changed and I was unable to do the teaching degree anymore. With that settled, I went about finishing up my bachelor's degree, and came to Radboud to do my master’s.
From the start it has seemed as if God wanted me to take this program, just the way He has made everything work out. From my prof receiving an email that she didn’t know why it was sent to her, to something not working so I wasn’t able to do the teaching degree, to the program being the right cost and being able to offer the exact program I wanted. Everything has fallen into place for me to go. I don’t know what I’m going to do after I graduate, yet, but I know God has a plan, and that He’ll make it known at the right time."
