i want to admission there

Zra My 29 October 2011 - 7:18pm / Netherlands

I studied in University of Twente (Enschede) and University of Amstredam for my Masters and PhD. After that I returned back to my home country to work before returning again to the Netherlands for a very brief post-doc in the University of Amsterdam. Both universities are very good and I would highly recommend them. Twente is more technical-focused and entrepreneurial. I currently work in the Netherlands but, sadly, I am working towards migrating to Canada. I still love the Netherlands but don't see much of a future for someone like me here. Nonetheless, I highly recommend the universities for foreigners interested in good and quality research-based education.
