Margreet: 'It enriches my life to hear teaching stories and situations from 7 different countries'

If there is a Dutch Master's available at Driestar Christian University, why choose this International track?

"In my case, it is because of the 4 countries I have lived in in 16 years, outside the Netherlands. 

When I returned to the Netherlands two years ago, I immediately got my job back at a primary school in Ermelo, but my husband didn't have a job and could return to a job abroad in no time. 

Maybe I would also go back into the world again and because of my experience in Pakistan with a teacher training programme, which inspired me a lot, I thought it would make sense to do an Education Master's degree. 

Besides, I missed my international life, the International stream seemed wonderful because of the encounters with people from all over the world. 

I found that they have to do their Masters in much more complicated circumstances and they inspired me by their great steadfast faith in God. These are two big reasons why I chose this master Learning and Innovation, track: Christian education. 

It enriches my life to hear teaching stories and situations from 7 different countries and pray for each other's situation. Christian education is still very much taken for granted in NL but it is not worldwide. Happy to recommend!”
