I'm an exchange student from Jena in Germany. I'm studying here for one semester. I really wanted to come to the Netherlands because of the outstanding psychology research that is being done here. Also, unlike in some other countries, universities here offer a wide range of English-taught courses.Groningen appealed to me in particular because it seemed very much like Jena. Not too big a city, but very beautiful, and dynamic too, because of the many students who live here..
The city has definitely met my expectations...
I also really like the lectures and the professors. They're always well-prepared and are clearly comfortable in front of the class, which makes them great fun to listen to.
The most interesting course unit I took here in Groningen was in Traffic Psychology. It was only attended by a few people, but the professor was great and the subject matter was fascinating. I would love to do something related to Traffic Psychology for my Master's placement, addressing questions like what distracts people when they're driving, and what can be done about it?
I'm not quite sure what I want to do after my Master's. I think a traineeship would be a good start, maybe at a consulting firm, preferably a small one. But I'll be studying for at least another year, so luckily there's still time to figure it out.
