Who? Josien Noppers, second year MSc student of Sensory Science
What? Four months taking Master’s courses
Where? Copenhagen, Denmark
It was nice to get away from Wageningen for a while and to see another university. Copenhagen is a real city where life goes on all through the night. That’s different to what I’m used to in Wageningen. I was also lucky that the famous music event Distortion took place during my stay in Copenhagen. A free festival for five days all around the city. Complete chaos, lots of music and above all, lots of people creating one big party together. A fantastic experience.
In many ways Denmark was quite similar to the Netherlands. I could get everywhere by bike and that’s what I did: half an hour’s bike ride every day to the university. I took two courses with lectures and practicals and one course similar to ACT. I didn’t have much trouble with the course content. In Wageningen I have to work extremely hard to get a 7, but it was quite easy there. So if you want to up your grade average a bit, Denmark is the place to be.’
