Student Profile(s)


I was very happy with my decision to come and study my MSc here. One important advantage of this programme is that it is flexible, and I could adjust to what I was most interested in. I felt that my teachers truly cared about my progress and gave me all the orientation I needed. Apart from studying, life in this town is peaceful and full of beauty. For me two things are certain: I have learned a lot, and I greatly enjoyed my year.
