This time I have quite revolutionary news – at least for me. Perhaps some (really VERY few) of you already knew it, some others won’t be surprised, and the rest would have never imagined it…
Lacking a better, more subtle way to say it, I’ll be direct and bold (using bold text, I mean :P):
On September 2012 I will leave Brazil, to start a M.Sc degree programme in Computer Science at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. Utrecht is the most prestigious and best ranked university in the Netherlands, and one the most prestigious of Europe. Oh, and of course, I’m UNBELIEVABLY happy and enthusiastic about the whole opportunity!
There are still A LOT of details and practicalities to be defined, but here is a small “FAQ” about the trip:
- My outbound flight departs from Brazil on September 2nd, 2012. I haven’t really thought about returning. I will be living in the Netherlands for AT LEAST two years…
- I was awarded a full scholarship by the Utrecht University Fund, the Utrecht Excellence Scholarship.
- I’m going to study (in a hardcore way, so to speak) Haskell, and will be part of the programme “Computing Science – Software Technology”.
- I’m making one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) dream of my life come true.
- YEAH, I want to celebrate this unique occasion with all of my friends, and PARTY HARD before my departure :D
So, from now on, stay tuned for updates about the preparations and – perhaps – some of the first posts in this blog “in het Nederlands” :)
