I enrolled to university, but really, I got so much more than just a degree – I discovered myself and got to do it alongside brilliant and wonderful people.

What did Jacobs do for you that you were not expecting?

Jacobs University changed my perspective of life. It is a unique place where people from all over the world meet – it's not just advertisement, it's truly lived – and not only do we learn from other cultures, but most importantly, we learn to value our own.

What do you think about the study program you were in at Jacobs?

My favorite thing about the Jacobs study program was the multi-disciplinary approach. It made me challenge myself and learn about something very different to what I was normally supposed to learn with my curriculum. It broadened my horizons and made think differently.

My studies were very student-focused with such small classes that it felt personalized! The courses were really interesting and most importantly, the professors were sharing knowledge from current trends, not things from centuries ago.
