What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?

I found one professor in CZU (CULS) who conducted many study about constructed wetland and found research opportunities there.

Did your studies meet your expectations? How did you find the study programme, instructors, university facilities? Were there any differences from studying in your country?

Master course was actually different from what I expected before, as in our country master student would mainly focus on diploma or research work. However to learn distinctive features of ecology in Czech Republic also help my inspiration to my diploma work here.

What was the biggest surprise with regard to studying or living in the Czech Republic?

Having oral exam and final state exam.

What was your most memorable experience or what did you enjoy most as a student in the Czech Republic?

I think relation between supervisor (ex: my professor) and student is relatively frank. For me it is really good environment to make negotiation with different profession people/

How do you think your time in the Czech Republic has helped your studies and/or your career?

Multi-cultural soil made me various kinds of ideas.

Do you have any advice for students thinking about studying in the Czech Republic?

It is better to define what you want to learn or acquire here.
