Isolde van Dorst
I really enjoy the enthusiasm and passion that the teachers have here

My name is Isolde van Dorst (21) and I am currently studying the Erasmus Mundus Language and Communication Technologies. Before this, I studied the bachelor English Language and Culture here at the University of Groningen as well.
Why Groningen?
I chose this Master's track because I was interested in linguistics (through my bachelor), but I also wanted to expand into a different direction than I was able to during my bachelor. As I already went abroad during my bachelor, I knew I would enjoy that part of this programme very much as well...
In addition, it is a high ranking university that would help me develop as a person as well as a student.
Future
After finishing my Master's track I am hoping to either get a PhD position in computational linguistics or find a job that allows me to travel as well as inspires me to continue expanding my knowledge.

PhD at Queen Mary University of London

In the final year of my bachelor studies in computer science, I decided that I wanted to do a master where I would be able to apply my knowledge about the field. When I heard about the master in LCT, I applied immediately. I got in, which allowed me the possibility to stay for an other year in the city of Groningen.

What attracted me in studying at the Rijksuniversiteit, was that it is a transparant university. I could easily access course descriptions and materials. What I also liked, was that I had the possibility to take courses outside my faculty. For example in philosophy...
The student life experience in Groningen was amazing for me.
During my study, I got an internship at Paylogic (a ticketing company based in Groningen). Later, I've joined Paylogic as a backed developer and I gained a PhD position at Queen Mary University of London. Here I work on Distributional Semantics, looking at the meaning of representations of words and phrases. Currently, I am in the final year of my PhD and I am looking for postdoc positions. Who knows, maybe there will be one in Groningen!
