I had a big aspiration to study abroad and to become a part of international community full of unique, creative and zealous students. That is how I decided to move to the Netherlands, first for my Bachelor, in which I combined degrees of business administration and philosophy. Then during my studies, I came to like Erasmus University so much that I decided to do my Master here too. As the result I did two Master degrees, in the sphere of management and in philosophy.
MA Philosophy Now, was my second degree that I decided to go for, since the programme allowed its students to freely construct their own curriculum out of a diversity of courses. In addition this programme provided a practical track were you could apply your knowledge directly in some chosen sphere. And if you were ambitious for more challenges, there was an honours programme that you could join. I really appreciated that flexibility throughout the entire programme, which was enabled with a support of the entire teaching staff.
And that was truly the core of this Master - a dedicated team of professors who helped nourishing your knowledge and polishing your skills. But of course you should be prepared to read a lot of philosophical literature, write essays and engage yourself in critical thinking. Good news, there’s a plenty of opportunity to work on your creative and problem solving skills too! Besides typical essay writing, courses also had exciting teamwork assignments, group presentations and projects that challenged you in a novel way.
Another great part of this programme was the community of students, who came from different cultural and educational backgrounds. They always brought versatile perspectives to the table, making class discussions very engaging and unique. At the end, I have realised that hands on experiences like this, best prepares you for the future career in an international environment.
