Why did you choose to study Dutch Studies in general and at UCL in specific

UCL offered a unique opportunity to combine my interest in Dutch and Business Management.

What did you like most about your degree programme?

The range of courses available in the Dutch Department and the Management Studies Department were both exceptional and engaging.

What was it like being a student at the Dutch department?

The support I received from the staff in the Dutch department was magnanimous. The lecturers are some of the most inspiring and generous people I have ever met. It has been a privilege to have them contribute to my education.

How has your degree been of benefit to you since you took your degree?

Learning Dutch has equipped me with the tools necessary to carry out a project I am presently involved in. I am translating a Dutch Maths Syllabus for an educational charity that is very close to my heart. The Management aspect of my degree has enabled me to transmit my enthusiasm for the subject to future entrepreneurs.
