'After graduating I can start working nearly anywhere in the world!'
- Student stories
Groningen was love at first sight! I remember the first day I visited Groningen as a tourist and fell in love with this lively city full of students. After some research, I decided to leave my comfort zone, move to another country and apply for International Communication.
'I chose International Communication for its broadness as I didn't know for sure what I wanted to study. It was a perfect opportunity to find out what my interests are and what I am good at! After diving into different fields of communication, I found myself interested in and being really good at marketing.'
'And why is it called international? Not only do you dive into communication, but you also experience different cultures, learn about communication between cultures and cultural differences. It is more important than you might think!'
'What I was surprised about is the amount of practice during this study. As I come from the Czech Republic, we do not have many practical studies and we do not do many internships. But I love the practical side of International Communication! We get real clients for our projects already in the first year. For example, we planned sustainable campaigns, wrote a business plan, came up with a marketing strategy for an Italian brand and a whole communication plan for Centraal Beheer! It was so exciting to work on real projects.'
'Discovering and working on your skills is also a big part of this study. During skills classes we practice skills from writing to public speaking, or even hosting workshops. There is a real emphasis on presenting! You learn everything from professionals, and all teachers are so kind and friendly!'
'I can't forget to mention that all this is happening in the best student city in the Netherlands. Groningen is full of students, amazing spots, festivals and parties! Groningen is never asleep and there is always something to do. There isn't a better city to enjoy your student life!'
The CMGT course is really beginner friendly, but also Groningen itself is a comfortable experience for international students like me.
Some parts of communication and intercultural communication theory were already familiar to me. However, the master goes more into depth, and you go through more theory at a quicker pace.
CMGT showed me such a broad perspective on everything I can do in the future, while not forcing me to stick to one unique discipline. I can decide if I want to specialize in programming, art, design, or any combination.
I enjoy CMGT because it is not just about making games for entertainment purposes, but also gives you the chance to make a difference with the games you create.
I do this. for example, by writing seo texts, monitoring keywords, link building and coming up with more new and creative ideas to increase the organic traffic.
It was not easy getting a job after graduation. Therefore, I came up with a strategy of applying to companies mainly as an intern to enable me to showcase my skills obtained from the MIC.
