The University of Lodz

I had the pleasure of learning and acquiring knowledge from the best professors at this university. The University of Lodz was established in 1945 and has long been one of the biggest and most popular universities in Poland. High level of education, learning foreign languages, scholarships, student exchange programs are just some of the advantages that I experienced by my own.  The 12 faculties, and a branch unit of the University provide programmes in 100 fields of study and 160 specializations. In addition, the University offers several doctoral programmes, more than 50 postgraduate study programmes, as well as studies in English and French. More than 28 000 students attend the University of Lodz.  The University is also very open for […]

Rede que liga fagos de todo o mundo

Há já uma rede de investigadores que troca informação sobre a terapia fágica e fornece fagos em caso de necessidade. Imagine que alguém tem uma infecção de uma bactéria resistente a um antibiótico e a única solução é ser tratado através da terapia fágica, uma abordagem terapêutica que usa vírus (bacteriófagos) para matar bactérias específicas. Adelaide Almeida, do Centro de Estudos do Ambiente e do Mar da Universidade de Aveiro, alerta que seria útil a criação de um banco de dados com informação sobre todos os bacteriófagos (ou fagos) que cada laboratório do mundo produz. Assim, esse laboratório poderia disponibilizar o fago para tratar a infecções ou para ensaios clínicos, aumentando assim a rapidez desses testes. Neste momento, já existe […]

Can the European project survive?

The project “Europe” is stumbling. Now more than ever. Opinions tend to differ sharply when it comes to questions concerning refugees, the rise of far right parties and racism against minorities. The European Union seems to fall apart as countries discuss the leaving of this once-so-promising project. So the question arises, what can we – as individuals – do to save this venture? How can we make sure that our grandchildren will have the same privileges that we have now?  I think the most basic and most important precondition is to be OPEN. To be open towards new cultures, new people, new habits. To be open towards new norms, new ideas, new point of views. Only when we mutually approach […]

Nobel da Paz 2019 para Abiv Ahmed

O primeiro-ministro etíope ganhou o 100.º Nobel da Paz pelos seus esforços para “alcançar a paz e a cooperação internacional” com os acordos de paz com a Eritreia. O vencedor do Prémio Nobel da Paz de 2019 é Abiy Ahmed Ali, primeiro-ministro etíope, anunciaram nesta sexta-feira em Oslo as Academias sueca e norueguesa. O prémio foi atribuído pelos seus esforços para “alcançar a paz e a cooperação internacional” com os acordos de paz com a Eritreia. “A paz não chega das acções de apenas uma parte. Quando o primeiro-ministro estendeu a sua mão, Isaias Afewerki [Presidente da Eritreia] agarrou-a e ajudou a formalizar o processo de paz entre os dois países”, justificou Berit Reiss-Andersen, líder​ do comité que atribui este […]

A Europe for the future

How can we ensure that the European Union operates in the best way to support all future generations? For someone from the United Kingdom, the European Union is incredibly important for us now more than ever. Therefore, I believe that the most important thing I can do for the EU and my country is to show my support for remaining in the EU. The EU brings many benefits to a country, in my opinion, I care mostly about the ease of travel. Without the EU I would not be able to travel as easily or possibly take part in Erasmus at all. It is so important for young people to be able to travel, study and work in new places. […]

The Radboud University

The best “traditional university” in the Netherlands Being located in Nijmegen, the oldest city of the Netherlands, the Radboud University was founded in 1923. Nowadays approx. 20.000 students study in seven different faculties: the Faculty of Arts, Law, Medical Sciences, Management, Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies, Science and the Faculty of Social Science. Since the university is focused on international research in several fields, most master degrees are taught in English, whereas most bachelor degrees are taught in Dutch. One could name numerous note-worthy alumni of this university, but the most notable would probably be Frans de Waal. After graduating in Primatology and Ethology in 1970, he became very well known for his research in primate social behaviour and the […]

University For the Common Good

I attended Glasgow Caledonian University, in Scotland, where I studied business and tourism management. Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) is a very new university, it was founded in 1993, because of the merger of The Queen’s College and Glasgow Polytechnic. It is the third university in Glasgow, is located in the centre of the city and serves over 20 thousand students and 1500 staff members. There are also campuses in London, New York, and a college of engineering in Oman. The university’s chancellor is currently Annie Lennox, famous singer in Eurythmics, social activist and philanthropist. The chancellor’s role is mostly symbolic, she attends important events such as graduation. In most Scottish universities graduates are “capped” before receiving their degree, which means […]

Asproni, Motzo, Arborea

My long journey into the Italian high school system, through dreams, changes and troubles. Except for the very first years of elementary and middle school, I have never been a model student; I really cannot say that I always studied hard during my 6 years of high school, even if I have always had a decent ability to understand at first glance. For various reasons I have found myself changing several classes, courses and school. Moreover I had to repeat one year, the third one, but in any case I always had to study during the summer the subjects that I didn’t pass during the year. All these things for sure didn’t help my nature of being constantly distracted from […]

The school system in Germany

I was in my last school two and a half years. There I did my general qualification for university entrance at the beginning of this year. In Germany we have 16 federal states and every state can change the school system a little. This is why we don’t have a uniform school system in the whole country. This is difficult because the levels in the different states can be different. In my federal state the students are studying for four years in primary school, six years in junior high school and two and a half years or three years in high school. In high school I have the choice of which school subjects I want to take. I have to […]

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 […]
