Internship at United Nations Women South Asia Regional Office in Delhi
I gathered a lot of new 'intellectual' knowledge during my internship, as the viewpoints and issues you learn about in an UN office in India are very different from what you learn at a Dutch university and in the Western culture. Moreover, I developed my ability to work individually as a researcher, but also as a colleague in a multicultural team.
What I also find very valuable is my personal learning...
I really liked that I was moving out of the ‘ivory tower’ into the ‘real world’ for a bit and got an insight into a part of the international political (development) system in practice. This allowed me to further my ideas about what future career I might want to pursue. I also very much liked that I could use this opportunity to investigate a topic which I find really interesting, but that I also got tasks from my boss that dealt with topics I would never have delft into myself. Furthermore, I was really lucky, because I got many opportunities to meet interesting people, to participate in conferences and seminars and to travel in order to better fulfill my tasks. Of course I also enjoyed the periods of travelling prior to and after my internship a lot - India has much to discover! Read more

student Elisa Tuijnder
I specialized in African Studies and International Development
After gaining my Bachelor's degree in History I started the Research Master's track in Modern History and International Relations at the University of Groningen. My History programme was rather broad-based and I knew that this Master's track offered a lot of room for personal preferences and specialization. During my Master's I specialized in African Studies and International Development.
In the first year I followed several research seminars on Africa, and in the second I started a placement at the African Studies Centre in Leiden...
In the future I would like to work for an international advisory centre, or perhaps as an operational manager for an NGO – preferably a development organization, so that I can use my knowledge and expertise to analyse and help improve local policy.

"The content of the program is supplemented by the diverse backgrounds of the participating students."
I am a second year student in the ReMa Modern History and International Relations. Thus far, the program has met the expectations I had prior to my arrival in Groningen: academic and intellectual rigor, freedom to pursue personal interests in depth and the acquirement of the methodological tools imperative to conduct high-quality research.
The interdisciplinary nature of my program appeared as a natural continuation of my growing interests. Having arrived in Groningen with little or no knowledge of IR theory, I was quickly immersed in it and immediately recognized its value to my own interests...

Research Master's Student Patty Huijbers About Her Research Assistants Programme
Hedwich van der Bij
Research Fellow at Clingendael Institute
Five years ago I enrolled in the Research Master's programme in Modern History and International Relations at the University of Groningen. It was a small-scale programme that gave you the opportunity to develop further in a specific field of research in a group of 10 students. That appealed to me, as did the interesting modules that were offered alongside the regular programme, such as 'Euroculture' and the summer school 'Democracy and Transitional Justice'.
I currently work as a research fellow for Europe at Clingendael, the Netherlands Institute for International Relations in The Hague. With the European Union facing significant challenges, it is a special time to be working at the Europe cluster at Clingendael. My research is on European administration, European integration and European Neighbourhood Policy. In the future I would like to do a PhD on one of these topics.
