World Scholarship report MerleAutumn in Amsterdam

The wind whistles, the grey sky chatters, and yet the city is still beautiful with its small bridges, canals, winding alleys and crooked buildings.

World Scholarship report MerleMy studies

Autumn in AmsterdamSince September I am studying "Political Science" at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The studies are very demanding, I feel challenged. At the same time it is very exciting, I feel that after such a short time I have gained new insights into political processes and dynamics and have broadened my horizon.
In particular, the fact that the course of study, i.e. all lectures, articles and specialist literature, are in English improves my language skills. Unfortunately, most of the study program is online, which requires a great deal of self-discipline. However, once a week the course "Academic Skills for Political Scientists" takes place in the university building. There I have the opportunity to discuss current political issues with other students and to learn more about scientific working methods from our mentor. My fellow students come from all over the world - for example from Syria, Russia, Portugal, the US or the Netherlands itself - which makes discussions exciting and adds perspectives.

Student AssociationIn addition, I have a course in history and another offers an introduction to political science and includes basic theories and concepts. I am a member of the student association "SV Machiavelli", which is the largest and oldest of its kind in the Netherlands. They organize political talks, travel, various activities and publish a magazine. Because I wanted to get more involved, I became part of the committee "Political Activities".

World Scholarship report MerleWhat to do in Amsterdam

MerleI am currently preparing for the upcoming exam phase. And when I have free time, I go to one of the many museums in Amsterdam: I have already been to the famous Rijksmuseum and the Museum of Photography and I can only recommend it! Or I sit in a café and try to watch out for a time slot where the rain takes a break.
