The plant breeding distance learning course was really interesting and very applicable to my daily work at Enza Zaden. I found it a challenge to study again as it was a long time since I graduated, however supervisory lecturer dr. Jan-Kees Goud helped whenever I had questions and I was really pleased with my grades.
