I could really feel the support of other students, there was no rat race. The same on the part of lecturers, they'd always make sure I understood everything in class. If I were to choose again, I would've chosen the same. Here at the university I always felt at home.

It's an international experience. My BSc is in microbiology so I chose this course. My dream was first to complete my MSc with good grades, and then to get a job, in my country or another, with a satisfying salary. If I get the chance, I will work in research.

The University is a cool place. Professors were really friendly, they spoke slowly to make sure I could understand. Subjects and faculties offered here are another advantage. Lecturers had modern, up to date knowledge in environmental protection, especially referring to the climate change.

I have benefited from the combination of theory and practice in the curriculum. I am really interested in urban ecosystems, the focus of my research is how to protect and create better urban environments. In the future, I intend to continue my research on landscape design as a Ph.D.
