To get to know each other, I shall first introduce myself. I am Marjolein Verweij, a 21-year old student. This summer I completed my Bachelor Animal Sciences. For my Master Animal Sciences I am going abroad to the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna.
There I will follow some courses, focussing on animal breeding and genetics. Also some courses about wildlife and the conservation of wildlife are included. I am going abroad because I think that it’s an unique experience!The choice for the university was easy to make, because Wageningen University and the BOKU are partner universities. Besides that, Vienna is a really beautiful city with a lot of culture! I am looking forward to study in Vienna, but also to discover the city itself and to meet new people.
The room that I found is in a district near to the old city centre, and I hope that am going to have a lot of fun with my five roommates.
I’ll keep you informed about my experiences in Vienna!
