Musical education

I studied in Puolalanmäki Upper Secondary School for three years and graduated in 2018. It’s one of the Upper secondary schools in Turku, which is a city on the southwest coast of Finland. The main reason why I wanted to apply to Puolalanmäki was that the school offers a great music oriented programme. The programme also ended up being the reason why I was motivated to go to school every day. Alongside normal subjects I had a lot of music courses, for example music history, theory, singing lessons and classes on how to express yourself with music and how to get better in performing songs. I was one of the singers in our school’s choir, which consisted of more than […]

My old school: HLW Rankweil

The “HLW Rankweil”, as it’s called, is located in Rankweil, Austria and was founded in 1977. The school I’m writing about is my old high school.

My University

I studied at the University of Reading for three years. My degree was in History and Politics. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

Licenciados com ordenados maiores

Licenciados ganham 64% acima de não-licenciados Tirar uma licenciatura, um mestrado ou um doutoramento ainda compensa no atual contexto profissional? Os dados do Instituto Nacional de Estatística (INE) demonstram que, financeiramente, sim, mas não tanto quanto no passado. Em Portugal, a remuneração média mensal de base era, em 2017 (últimos dados disponibilizados), €943 em valores brutos. Um licenciado ganhava em média de €1547,17 brutos mensais, 64% acima da média nacional. Ter mestrado confere um salário 62% acima da média nacional e um doutorado tem uma remuneração 145% superior. Mas as vantagens salariais associadas à qualificação superior tem vindo a diminuir ao longo dos anos. Em 2007 a remuneração média mensal de um licenciado era mais do dobro do valor médio […]

Reforestation Activity

 Reforestation Activity shared with you by our European volunteers! Gratifying experience On the first of December 2018, several volunteers took part in a reforestation project in our local Parque Ecológico. In the beginning, we were given a short introduction and learned of the variety and numerous species residing in the ecological park. Moreover, we learned of the devastating wildfires, which were the reason for our activity.

This planting task was very enjoyable, as we were able to combine enjoying a beautiful scenery with the fulfilling sense of being able to take part in something long-lasting and ecologically important.
