Master: Public Policy and Human Development, School of Governance, UM
Bachelor: European Studies, UM
"There were several reasons for me to choose this master's; the people, the costs, the city, its centrality in Europe, the reputation of the School of Governance, the attractiveness of the programme, but what's most important is the content. The subject areas that are covered are interesting and the staff are very cooperative. Also, the different nationalities among the student population are a huge added value. I thought about a master's in Russian studies in Estonia for a while, but there were too many factors that kept me here.
"The work pressure is fair. Like me, a lot of students work beside their studies. I have a job and am busy organising a conference, but still, if you're organised and motivated, you can manage without problems. Before I started this programme I wasn't sure what I wanted to do afterwards; now it's crystallising. At the moment I'm writing my thesis on globalisation trade and development. Next year I want to gain some work experience in this field abroad, and maybe later on do a PhD related to this subject."
