A Research Internship in Belfast

On Thursday the 21st of June my adventure began: An eight-week long research internship in Belfast! For the first weekend my mum accompanied me and so we flew to Dublin together. From there we took the train up to Belfast, which is actually a very relaxed way of reaching Belfast as the train trip only takes two hours and for students it costs just 15 pounds.

The city in the sky: studying abroad 9.272 kilometers from home!

Germany? Norway? Spain? United States? South Africa? South Korea? Hong Kong? I considered all of these 7 destinations. My previous university, Utrecht University, offered more than 500+ destinations. While it is nice to have so many options, it was incredibly hard to choose between all those options, because what should you really look for?

Studying “Abroad”? About Being a German Psychology Student in Vienna

It’s become a cliché: if your Numerus Clausus (your grade from the last years of High School) doesn’t fit, you simply cannot get into a German university to study psychology. So, what are your options? Well, either you find something else or you’ll have to go somewhere else. And many of us who prefer the latter option choose Austria.  I mean, how could we not? There is this small country right next to ours, in which they speak the same…
