How do you like Maastricht so far?
"Well, it’s really beautiful and definitely cheaper than Scotland, which is the most important thing of course. I did my bachelor studies in Glasgow."
How do you like your room/house, and have you already met your house mates?
"I like it a lot. It’s a big room in a house just past the Belgian border. I’ve met two out of my fifteen housemates. They’re alright but quite shy. We haven't spent much time together yet; I only arrived in Maastricht yesterday evening."
Did your parents give you any advice before you took off?
"They told me to be wise with my money. I like to spend it on clothes a lot."
What is indispensable during the Inkom?
"Sleep. I love my sleep. At least 7,5 hours per night."
Have you heard that there is a surplus of female students /shortage of male students at UM? What’s your take on that?
"Well… let’s say girls aren’t interesting to me."
