European Governance was a demanding and rewarding program at the same time. I considerably improved my academic English and expanded my knowledge in European affairs.

Even though studying in the Czech Republic was not my first choice, I took to this lovely country, the vibrant campus and the program like a duck to water. Looking back, I don’t regret my choice for a second.

European Governance was a demanding and rewarding program at the same time. I considerably improved my academic English and expanded my knowledge in European affairs. The seminars I attended were quite small with around 15 participants, which gave everybody the opportunity to actively engage in class. Throughout the program, we received excellent support both by the faculty administration and the professors. Next to some mandatory courses, we were free to pick and choose seminars that matched our interests, which I appreciated a lot.

Brno is a cozy student city, with lots of nice and affordable places to eat, drink or for going out. Many international students populate the city center, which makes you meet interesting people all around. Despite the program being quite tough, I found some time to discover the Czech Republic and its neighboring countries. For people who are not familiar with this region, I would recommend to do so. Central Europe harbors quite some gems, like Prague, Krakow or Budapest. All in all, I spent both an amazing and productive year in Brno.
