Experiences of Foreign Students

Beyza from Turkey

Chemical Robotics Laboratory of Prof. Stepanek (September 2013 - June 2014)

My Erasmus period can be named as adventure film that began on 4th September 2013. I had no idea about what will I do in a different country and culture and friends for ten months. Petrin tower was my first destination that made me feel happy. Prague was laying ahead of us with all its great pomp. At that time, I thought that living in Prague for Erasmus life was the best decision in my life J Erasmus Club of ICT planned really good trips for Erasmus students from the beginning to the end of the term. They were well organized group I have ever seen. Also, all members of the goup was so friendly and helpful for us. I want to thank to each of them for their patience, tolerance and kindness. Except Erasmus club, also my laboratory group planned lots of organizations for me such as climbing, ice skating, cinema nights, parties. Everyday was funny and different than each other for me. Beside these activities, they were also helpful about my experiments in laboratory. I would like to say that I spent the most beautiful times in Prague and ICT in my life.

Rachel from Scotland

Bioenginnereing laboratory of Prof. Hasal (February - May 2014)

My time spent in the laboratory gave me an opportunity to discover how enjoyable and rewarding research can be as a means of pursuing an interest in new and challenging ways. My project allowed me to practically apply knowledge acquired throughout my time at university, whilst greatly improving my laboratory skills and ability to interpret technical data. It also enhanced my ability to manage time effectively, work independently and communicate constructively. Professor Hasal and everyone in the laboratory took genuine interest in my progress and provided tremendous support and encouragement throughout.

 

Vuk from Bosnia and Herzegovina

I chose UCT Prague as the place of my Master's studies after talking to a few students in the final year of my bachelor studies. My fellow students described to me how studying at the university looks like, what the quality of teaching is, the depth of knowledge offered, and what is student life like, in general. In addition to that, I had also visited Prague a few times before and had a chance to admire its magnificent architecture, specific rhythm, interesting nightlife and cultural diversity; basically, all the interesting features that it can offer to a resident, which I really enjoyed. Thus, I had an extra reason to continue my education here.

Shortly after the start of my studies, I realized that I had made the right decision, for many reasons. The study programme is sufficiently flexible and includes a great number of different optional subjects, as well as the obligatory Laboratory Project, where students are allowed to choose a theme they are most interested in and conduct their own research in a particular field - of course, guided by their mentors. Moreover, it is also possible to take numerous language courses (from the introductory to the advanced level), offered by the university's languages department. I believe that it is also worth mentioning that the university's laboratories are very well-equipped, as are the classrooms. Finally, the university cooperates with many European universities and offers many exchange programs to its students, such as Erasmus+, ATHENS, CEEPUS, etc.

To somehow sum up the whole story: I have to say that I really enjoyed the time spent in Prague and at the university, and I really tried to make the most of everything they had to offer. When it comes to future plans, I will continue my education and do my PhD studies here.
