Have you heard of this?
Hello, I am a student from the master programme “Climate studies”. It is a course to tackle Anthropocene climate change.
What is Anthropocene? :O
Relating to or denoting the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment
Climate change and WUR!
Wageningen University and Research has a number of research opportunities to explore and combat climate change. Obviously, their first step is to offer the course 😛
And I have chosen the specialisation “”
Since my bachelor’s is different from my master’s, initially I did struggle to keep up with the course. However, as each period went by, the schedule and work load becomes easy to deal with 🙂
The courses I chose requires preparations before the class to cope with the lectures. In addition, every assignment is important to better understand concepts. Well, like I said, initially it would be very difficult to keep up, but you will definitely get used to it. This is the speciality of WUR 😉It is wise to speak to alumni and other students to understand the various courses offered before choosing the specialisation. Before approaching your study advisers, be sure to know what you courses you want to do. Helps save time and easier for them to understand your interests 🙂
The best part of the programme is that it offers a wide range of interesting courses and provides flexibility of not having too many “compulsory courses”
The most interesting course of this programme is the ‘Academic Consultancy Training (ACT)’. The course offers different projects with real time clients 🙂 You will need to submit a report by the end of the 12 week course. It is evaluated by the course supervisors and the client! During the course, you get to learn a lot about real world problems and apply theories from different courses taught during various periods. It is also a great learning opportunity to cooperate in a professional manner with other students who are a part of the team.
The first year of the master’s was amazing, can’t wait to see what is in store for the second year!
