About the programme: The main thing I liked about the programme was the wide range of security courses offered here which was really challenging and a was great learning experience compared to my previous education and the other reason being the professors from the digital security group who are the best in the field.
The atmosphere in class: The experience in the lectures were great and some of the courses were recorded which was helpful in case of missing a lecture and the lectures were fairly interactive.
Challenges and obstacles: One of the challenge being an international student was getting used to the culture and the education system in Netherlands due to which there were some obstacles with the initial courses and exams which got better as days passed.
Internship: I'm currently starting with my Masters thesis and I'm still working on my topic.
