Mirjam had been searching for ecology master’s programs in Europe and when she read the description of the master's program Ecology and the Environment at LiU, it sounded like something she wanted to do. Mirjam liked that the courses seemed to be more practical than theoretical. After two months here, she says that she really like that.
Mirjam likes that she is going to spend the whole second year of this program working on just her master’s thesis. She is also really happy about the relatively small group of students on this program.
“It is really nice to have just few people in the group – you can really meet with them and become close. I also love that the professors are kind and they like to hear what you have to say, instead of just teaching you. It is a two–way learning process.”
She is stressing that studying at LiU means that you need to be flexible; classes are very interactive, you are expected to work independently as much as possible and you are encouraged to take initiative.
