Student Profile(s)

Alex Williams

‘It can be very difficult to find a Philosophy Master’s in English on the continent. Radboud University not only offers a Research Master’s in Philosophy, but thanks to the wide range of specialisations I found a programme that really suited my interests. The programme really is challenging. Teachers expect quite a lot from you. They give you free range to find a research topic, which is great but also daunting. They do give plenty of guidance, though. “You’re interested in this? Well, have a look at this, and this, and this research.” I loved going away with lots to read that inspired me to form my own ideas.’
