    Wageningen university is one of top ranked universities in my specialization. I liked the courses they offered and education system.

    Course Curriculum :

    First year study is related to course study where we also got experience with industrial projects. Second year study is related to thesis and internship. Most of the thesis will be related to industrial projects and you are also free chose your own topic.

    Wageningen University and Research(WUR) is one of the best universities for Life Sciences. It stands in 16th place overall in the world according to Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Europe has always had my heart, I fell in love with this place when I had come in 2012. It was then that I decided if I will pursue my higher education then it will be in Europe. So then as my field is biotechnology and WUR was the best university to make my dreams come true.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum and the education system differs a lot from home country to here. It was all going well until we faced pandemic. Everything changed around and education was online and it was the most difficult time to adjust to so many things happening around. We as International students should be ready to face all sort of circumstances. It wasn't easy in the beginning but the professors and other students were really friendly and that made it easy for me to cope up with the new system. I will soon start my master thesis and looking forward to get research experience.

    I wanted to create and impact. I wanted to change things. Since I was a native of the place, I could see how things have changed in my country over the years. Therefore, I looked for the courses where I could get in-depth knowledge about the environment. That's how I came across the Wageningen University and went ahead to fill the application form.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course just not involves classroom teaching but also incubates practical learning as well. It aims to develop skills and knowledge to design sustainable solutions for the future of our planet. Also, it focuses on the major problems that our environment is facing and how the solution part can be devised.
