What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?
I had a lack of awareness about the post-Soviet European countries. So, rather than a western EU country that I know, I preferred to experience something that teaches me new things.
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?
Although my Erasmus studies were different than my department in my home country, I experienced many differences in the conduction of courses in a good way. Significantly, I observed more interaction between students and lecturers during classes.
What was the biggest surprise with regard to studying or living in the Czech Republic?
The academic staff exchange for certain time-frames between European countries was really enlightening for me since I didn't have that chance in my country.
What was your most memorable experience or what did you enjoy most as a student in the Czech Republic?
Academicians and other staff at my university were really helpful and open to create sincere relations with students. I felt very welcomed at Silesian University and still carry a connection with people there.
How do you think your time in the Czech Republic has helped your studies and/or your career?
It changed the way I see the world in a really good way. It helped me to determine my future career since it was an international multicultural experience for me.
Do you have any advice for students thinking about studying in the Czech Republic?
You will be very welcomed in the Czech Republic as long as you want to be part of a shared color that born out of diversity. Don't miss to put effort to know more and get include in the culture and enjoy your study.
