Some highlights of the past two weeks:
Left to right, top to bottom
Big moment today: officially had the last day of classes for my MSc International Health Management. During this day we presented our findings on the healthcare consultancy project we have been working on for the past weeks (and obviously I needed a new suit for that – left on the picture). My group worked at Charing Cross Hospital looking at operational (in)efficiency at a cancer outpatient clinic. It was very interesting to do and staff at the clinic was very nice. What our group found particularly enjoyable but also challenging was applying the models from theory to the ‘chaos’ of the real world.
First of all, my sincerest apologies for posting after such a long time….
procrastination got the better of me!
I hope 2013 is off to a wonderful start for you all! Second semester, the first half has
flown by… I can’t believe it! 5 weeks since exams ended… Which I realise, I didn’t
even tell you about …. So will do a quick note on the exams. In short, 5 days, 5 exams
…back to back! Hell. ‘Nuff said. No but seriously, would strongly recommend keeping on top of your notes and reading
if possible because I found it significantly easier to revise for the exams I had done
this for, than those that I hadn’t.
First of all, I hope you all had a great start of the new year! My NYE celebration was magnificent, the idea of having to study on the day afterwards a bit less though.. Anyway, on the 4th of January I had to leave the lovely Netherlands again to go back to London for a final weekend of studying before the exams. After that one weekend, of which you will probably spend half talking to class mates on the phone about how crazy much work you have done and/or still need to do, it is time for the exams… The first day can be terrifying, since you don’t know what to expect, luckily my best friend from Amsterdam sent me lucky socks (see photo), hahaha!
Just a short post to wish you all a happy Christmas from Amsterdam. I hope that you all have had a wonderful Christmas eve; unfortunately, we had no snow here on Christmas eve, just rain.. Anyway, if you are applying for Imperial, be prepared that your Christmas break will be filled with studying. Seriously. Studying is what you will do during your break. Of course you’ll have (to make) time to meet up with some friends and see your family etcetera, but don’t expect to be chilling next to the Christmas tree and not think of your course work at all, haha!
