Placement at CARE India
I had already undertaken placements in Central America so I was already used to working in new environments. This placement taught me how to make decisions under pressure of time and money, based on sufficient relevant training. In addition, I learned to transfer my insights and knowledge to the organization in an accessible way. I also learned how to procure some freedom within a highly hierarchical organization in order to get the desired learning experience.

I applied for the Master's programme in Humanitarian Action because I wanted to learn more about the work of humanitarian aid organizations. My preference was the specialization in comprehensive security, which is offered by the University of Groningen.
It was definitely a very good choice, because of the combination of different perspectives on the topic and the courses in International Law, Anthropology, Public Health, etc. Our group following the Humanitarian Master in Groningen was very diverse, with students from different countries, different academic disciplines and backgrounds...
