What made you decide to study in the Czech Republic?

I was always dreaming to study abroad then I had a chance to study with Erasmus+ program in Czech Republic. I caught that chance and came here.

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?

It exactly met my expectations so I wanted to be a full time student so I continued for the Masters degree and then PhD in Mendel University.

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

Most surprising thing was exam dates that we could choose multiple times.

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

First, completing Erasmus program was amazing. I could join every event with Erasmus environment and also was able to attend my classes without any problem. Besides, as being full time student in Mendel University I had a chance to study in Australia, Spain and USA which were the top decisions in my life.

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

It gave me possibilities to pursue my degree for Masters and for the PhD, it is important that I did not need to look for any other university to continue as Mendel opened the exact field that I was looking for.

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

They should just come over and Czech Republic will help them in every way. But, first Czech language is a must, so I advice them to study Czech by the time they arrive so they will adopt the environment easily.
