    Interview with Tea Kipshidze, Sociology Research Master’s student. Tea is studying on a grant from the Tilburg University Fund.

    ‘My dream is to mount a Research Master’s program in my country, Georgia, as soon as I have finished my thesis (on methodology) and successfully complete my studies. The knowledge I have acquired here in the past few years is so useful for me and for my country! The way social sciences in my country are taught and studied is really outdated and aimed mainly at reproduction.

    Interview with Kees van Rengs, alumnus of Tilburg University and founder and owner of Plennid

I have arranged to meet Kees in his office in Rotterdam, on the 11th floor of the Rotterdam Science Tower. Against the backdrop of the hustle and bustle in the port below, we discuss what drives him, his company, and his experiences as a student at Tilburg University.
