You must be prepared to read a lot, write, understand and try to think outside your own experience. I would advise you to have an open mind about the problems in the world. There is never only one side of an issue, nor a single solution to the problem.

I had a great experience conducting my field work in Ecuador. It is a beautiful country and the people are incredible! I came to recognize the problems within the national cocoa sector to be far more extended than I first assumed. Being obliged to make continuous considerations and adjustments made me feel like a true researcher! The process of preparation, field work and writing the thesis was a great closure of my studies at Ås. I truly recommend Master in Development Studies. You will be met by a professional, committed and open hearted study environment and meet friends for life!
