Why studying in Maastricht?❓
➔ Because Maastricht is the perfect-size city to me. You can go around in the centre wherever my foot or by bike but also it doesn’t feel too tight. Because there are so many events and interesting educational activities organised and most of them are for free or donation based. Because even if you don’t know the language, people can speak English so are able to communicate...even with your 70 years old neighbour. Because it has got nature very close to the city, when you need a good breath and more quiet time. Because the river Maas (to which I live very close) is magic in all the daytimes: in the morning, in the warm or cold afternoon, at the sunsets or at night.
Why did you choose for your master’s programme at Maastricht University, what made it so special for you that you chose to come here?❓
➔ The expertise of the professors team I was going to be taught by made a important point to me. Because I’ve always been inside the sport world and furthermore had a personal interest in nutrition, that I wanted to base on real science and capabilities. The commitment of just one year Master instead of two made it also honestly easier to face, in case you find out it was not exactly “your way”.
Did you choose between Maastricht and another university (and if so, why Maastricht and not the other university)? ❓
➔ Yes, I passed in several masters I applied for, but eventually I chose Maastricht University. Because of the reasons I described above and also because Maastricht is well known and ranked around the world as a good and modern university in many fields. This might have a further impact on your cv compared to a less known university. Furthermore the professors team of my master was very valuable. And in the end confirmed to deserve this reputation.
