At the start of the programme, I also became a member of the Programme Committee (the OC). Here, I saw that teachers and staff attach great value to the input of students. Quality of the programme is not seen as rigid, but instead, teachers and staff believe it is something you have to keep striving for, and for which the opinions of students are of high importance.
'Although there were a lot of differences between students and their educational and theoretical backgrounds, the selection of courses, I believe, gave the students the opportunity to brush up with the theoretical knowledge needed.' - Stephanie Welvaart
