    For my particular course and interests, I knew I wanted to go to Europe as the best courses in sustainable energy are offered here. However, depending on country energy policies, the courses offered are highly tailored to teach students what their country requires. Netherlands is the only country with a well balanced approach towards transitioning to a more sustainable future. Thus, the course offered was in sync with my interests. Not to mention, the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at UU publishes high quality research with one of the highest number of citations. All in all, for my particular course (Energy Science) I couldn't have found a better university except maybe TU Delft.

    Course Curriculum :

    The courses are very rigorous. They are specific designed by taking current industry expectations in consideration. Most professors at the university are highly involved with public and private projects. The courses developed by them tend to include their work. Even though the courses are rigorous, if you love the topic you will be learning, the studies are interesting and no extra motivation is required to do your best. I would suggest everyone to do research about the Dutch Grading System. No one gets a 10/10 here and 9s are handed out rarely. An 8/10 is equivalent to a 9.5-10/10 (Indian Grading system) or a 4/4 (American Grading system).

    This institute is a highly ranked (ranked in top 100 world university), the courses offered are diverse and the choice I made was aligned with my interest.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum and academic is challenging and prepares students sufficiently for the said course. The course literature is of high standards and benefits into critical thinking.

    The Netherlands is a country with a lot of international students. It is located centrally within Europe, making it super easy to travel to other countries. I came across this University when I was looking up the brochure of the Netherlands. I then went further to fill the online application for this university.

    Course Curriculum :

    I feel that I'm in the right place because of my broad interest. The best thing about Liberal arts and sciences is that I can combine those things, which I am interested in. This also combines the interest of different people that I am sitting with, which adds a flavour to it. This helps me to learn from different perspectives
