"I’ll be living right in the city center with a view of the Waal river and the little beach alongside"
Programme: Master's in Anthropology and Development Studies
Why did I choose Radboud University: After graduating with a BA in Anthropology, I spent four years working in international education and environmental advocacy. The different work experiences I had in Tunisia and the United States gave me a taste of the diverse ways people can create change, and I wanted to dive deeper into the idea of changing societies in a way that is good for people as well as the natural environment. The masters program at Radboud in Anthropology and Development is exactly what I’ve been looking for, combining social science field work with critical analyses of the development sector. Not only is this program a perfect fit for me, I love the location in a smaller city where cost of living and university fees are much more affordable.
What am I looking forward to the most regarding coming to Nijmegen: I am so excited to move into my student apartment! The accommodations at Talia, one of Radboud’s student residences, are really comfortable and well-located. I’ll be living right in the city center with a view of the Waal river and the little beach alongside it. It’s also amazing to move to Nijmegen on the year it’s been voted European Green Capital of 2018! I’m looking forward to meeting other students from around the world and eating good Dutch cheese :)
A fun fact about myself: I’ve lived most of my life in North Africa and can speak Arabic!
