'The Master programme Human Geography and the Urban Geography track in particular at the University of Amsterdam provided me with a high level academic framework and research skills to investigate urban issues all over the world. I experienced an atmosphere that belongs to a top 15 ranked University with regard to Geography in the world.' - Tiemen Koch.

Fenne Pinkster is the coordinator of this track and assistant professor, specialised in Urban Geography.

'What I like about Urban Geography, is the fact that you can bike through the city and see how processes that you read about in the academic literature take shape in the real world and can be experienced on a daily basis. We always try to incorporate this dimension of urban geography into our study programme.'
