“I think d’Overbroeck’s stands out through the genuine (and contagious!) passion teachers have for their subjects and the care and attention they give to each and every student.”

It was definitely getting an offer to read Philosophy, Polictics, and Economics (PPE) at Magdalen College at the University of Oxford. This had been my dream and the reason why I left my home country to study in England. Meanwhile, d’Overbroeck’s taught me a profound love for my subject itself and the beauty of the journey, but the end result was making my longtime dream a reality.

I am planning to a Master’s in Economics for Development at Oxford after my 3 year undergraduate course finishes. I then want to work as a professional economist in an International Organisation such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development or the World Bank.

I have completed two insight Weeks into investment banks in London, at J.P. Morgan and Credit Suisse. I’m now in the admissions process for a summer internship at a geopolitical risk company this year and for a research internship at Credit Suisse next summer. I’ve been on the committee of four different student societies, been to a lot of interesting talks and debates and met a lot of fascinating and high-profile speakers at various events around Oxford.
“My subjects have allowed me to understand how the world around me works, and where I want my part in it to be. I’ve enjoyed drawing parallels between them and seeing connections with my daily life. They helped me discover my interests more specifically and allowed me to look deeper into the things I found most attractive.”
“Studying in Oxford gave me the opportunity of attending some fascinating talks and lectures by incredibly intelligent people who can paint you a picture of the world in a way you haven’t seen it before with some brilliant insight into any field you may be interested in.”
