    My elder brother being a graduate from this college insisted me to study here. He tole me everything that i needed to know for the admission process. I applied from the official college portal and paid $80 for it. It was a non-refundable amount.

    Course Curriculum :

    We are currently having online classes, however I feel it could have been better if there was no pandemic.

    I did my Higher Secondary at the University of Mumbai and then thought of shifting to the Netherlands and continuing my education, therefore, I researched a bit about this university and found it to be very renowned. I decided to take admission here. I paid an application fee and apply through the online portal of the college.

    Course Curriculum :

    I was required to deal with human behavior and development in many fields, including psychological treatment, education, workplace, sports, environment, traffic, health, media, and more

    It was my goal to be a part f this university because it is a research university with a global outlook, deeply rooted in Groningen, City of Talent. Quality has had top priority for four hundred years, and with success. After securing a GPA of 7, I had to submit a common application form for an application fee of €75.

    Course Curriculum :

    In the history of philosophy lectures, I was required to read the texts of the great names in philosophy: from Plato to Derrida. In the Ethics course, I got an overview of all the most important moral theories: virtue theory, utilitarianism, deontology, and contract theory.

    I chosen this because this is was one of the few top ranked universities in the world top 100. It has an excellent reputation, and good job prospects after graduation.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course is good ,but the system here in the Netherlands is very different I advice you to do masters only if you are really keen on pursuing. The grading is very hard here you need 60% above to pass the course, and getting it is not very easy. It was very hard for me atleast I was struggling and is still struggling to score well. The syllabus is very updated in my branch linked to 4th Industrial revolution. We have in the 2nd year design project wherein we can work in companies to do the project and also research thesis which is very useful getting experience. Companies such is Phillips, NLR, Tata steel, Ventura and many other small scale start ups come to hire for the design projects and research thesis.
