Yes, after making several major steps, I am back to square one. The grand detour came last weekend via an email. I was awarded a full scholarship! Surprise of all surprises! I am now going to the Utrecht University to pursue a Master of Law Degree in International Law of Human Rights and Criminal Justice The scholarship will be funded by Oxfam NOVIB.
As a result, I have started cancelling my reservation in the Groningen Housing Office, which I fear will forfeit the amount I paid for the reservation. Also, I withdrew my acceptance in Groningen. Of course, I’m going to accept that scholarship in Utrecht!!
Right now, I’m busy filling up forms the University sent to arrange my housing, visa and enrollment! I’m going to scan the accomplished forms, send them via email, but still send the original documents via DHL. Repeat steps one, two, three… Wait sounds like a song I know… But I’m not complaining!
