What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?
Initially it was adventure, but subsequently I benefitted from the rich higher education comparable to what pertains in other developed countries at an affordable cost.
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?
I was and still am satisfied with my study in the Czech republic. Given the opportunity and upon hindsight, I will still chose to study in Czech Republic. That is why i always recommend anyone to study there. The programme was industry focus with practical orientation on how research can be applied to resolve the many socio-economic problems facing individuals, businesses and the entire society. I had the opportunity of been taught by faculty members with international teaching and research experience. These years of experience were brought to bear in the classroom which ultimately enriched the knowledge acquired. The university has state-of-the-art technological facilities. I particularly liked the practical approach to teaching. The guest lecturers from industry and other international universities, provided diversity of thought into the programme.
What was the biggest surprise with regard to studying or living in the Czech Republic?
Cultural shock! But then i appreciated that we don't have to relate to people based on our prejudices but look at things form the perspective of others
What was your most memorable experience or what did you enjoy most as a student in the Czech Republic?
Several memories. I liked the student parties, frequent trips to the country side fields, mountain hiking and my first attempt at skiing :)
How do you think your time in the Czech Republic has helped your studies and/or your career?
It has made me like and appreciate people better. I have developed a sense of humanity and willingness to help others. My studies have helped me to focus on a global picture when taking decisions.

There are endless opportunities. so have an open mind and be willing to adjust and learn new things.
