Programme: MA in Creative Industries
Previous education: I graduated in Fashion Design and after working for several years in the Brazilian market I decided to return to university to improve my academic skills. Last year I finished the Pre-Master's in Creative Industries at Radboud University and have now started the Master's.
Why did I choose Radboud University: Creative Industries, or Cultural industries, is considered a new field of study in comparison with traditional ones like Economics or Medicine, for instance. This already makes Radboud a unique university. Besides, the programme has a particular approach to Fashion Studies which was the reason I had chosen this course.
What do I like most about Nijmegen: I like the fact Nijmegen is considered the greenest city of the Netherlands, having all kinds of green areas spread around the city. Another impressive feature of Nimma is the diversity of cultural events. Apart from the two cinemas at the city centre, there are two huge concert halls, events such as international film festivals (GoShort and InScience), music festivals (Popronde), not to mention a couple of independent programmes that go on every day. I am also super excited to know ‘C’, the forthcoming culture hall that will be released in January 2018 at Radboud campus.
