"Why The Netherlands?" After a short and friendly talk, many people couldn't help asking me the same question when we first met each other. Just as I told them, I was attracted by the 'International study atmosphere' and 'English programme' titles that were presented on all the University recruitment advertisements. You can find a small world at the University. Thanks to my supervisors and all the other nice people working at the department, my English was improved during these two years of study. And although Dutch is still generally used in daily life, most of the Dutch citizens can understand and speak English.
"Why Nijmegen?" This would be the second question now that I have answered the first one. Different from those big cities, Nijmegen is a small city, which is basically occupied by creative and enthusiastic students. Other than a student living area, Nijmegen is a very relaxed and quiet city. You always can have double choices in here. Do you want a happy party night? Go to the city center, there we have many bars that are specially designed for students. Want a relaxed and cozy weekend? No problem, just stay a little farther from the center, you will find many amazing places by yourself if you cycle around this city.
I enjoyed my master study (Molecular Life Science) here at Radboud University Nijmegen. I have to say it was not easy for me to adapt myself to the new environment at the beginning. No family and friends around, no shopping after 18:00 every day, no shopping on Sunday, fully English environment... However, just as some friends had told me, everything turned out to be fine. Different from the education system in China, the programme provided by Radboud University Nijmegen was very flexible. There are many different courses you may choose inside the programme and you can apply to any department you like to gain practical experience. I wish I had done my bachelor here because then I might have had more choices and would have known where my interests lie a little bit faster than now. I would like to continue my study and career in the Life Science field and am trying to find a PhD position at this moment. After this two years' research training and practical preparation, I have the self-confidence to start and successfully finish a PhD study.
