'Entering the second semester, I started working on my Master’s thesis. Although I have slightly changed my topic in the process, it is now about EU foreign policy in the Southern Mediterranean, in the specific context of the victory of a set of Islamist political parties following the Arab revolutions. The great thing about the way in which the UvA approaches thesis-writing, is its flexibility. Students are given true freedom in the selection of their topic, and are also stimulated to developed original claims. There are usually weekly meeting with thesis supervisors, which follow your work and comment on its development. For more individual supervision, supervisors can also be reached electronically.' - Romana Michelon
