I am Portuguese and I studied Meteorology in my home country. After my bachelor I wanted to spread my wings and looked on the internet for something like a Master in Geography. Most of the English programmes are on very specific subjects. What attracted me in this master in Brussels was exactly its multidisciplinary approach. Besides your specialisation it also offers you a wide curriculum in physical and human geo-sciences. This means that you can really personalise and specialise your programme and still have a broad overview of everything Geography offers.
I’ve lived in Britain most of the time and finished a bachelor on Environmental Sciences in England. But then I moved to Belgium because part of my family lives here. Brussels is a very international city and I’m getting a lot out of the master. I enjoy living here and never felt unwelcome. The Master of Science in Geography allows you, depending on your background, to tailor the courses to what you want to do. I must confess that it is harder than I expected. But I’ve accepted the challenge!
