Wageningen University


"I have heard about Wageningen University in the time I was still studying for my bachelor in Romania. When I decided to study a Master, Wageningen was my very first choice, partly because it has exactly the program I was interested in, Food Quality Management, and partly due to the extremely good reputation Wageningen has in Europe and the rest of the world as a life science University and Research Center.
In Wageningen I experienced another side of the educational system, a more efficient and more practical oriented one. I also enjoyed a lot the multicultural environment and the very positive attitude of all the Wageningen people.
It is very rewarding to gain the knowledge and learn from the experience of the best in the area. The Netherlands is a country with great tradition in agriculture and great respect for the environment which makes studying in Wageningen, Netherlands an extraordinary experience."  

Oana Ciocirlan from Romania - Msc Food Quality Management
