Interview Fatma Capkurt

"The reason I applied was because I really wanted to expand my knowledge and academic skills, like critical text analyses, conducting decent legal research, improve my legal academic writing. Now I am already in the second semester of this program and feel I have already learned so much. There truly is a focus on developing critical academic thinking, instead of learning everything by heart"

Moreover, teaching staff at Tilburg are accessible for discussion with their students, both inside the courses they teach and outside."

"The groups are small and you can focus on the topics that really interest you. You learn how to approach the topic of your interest from an academic perspective. I would say that this program helps you to get your foot in the door leading to the academic world. It gives you a new perspective on law, study and research, and life in general."
