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 […]

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. At the moment there are around 65 teachers and 480 students, most of them being girls. It takes five years to finish and graduate from this school. This school is not like a normal high school, the correct translation of the name is: school and college of management and services industries. This means that in addition to general education it provides a technical and vocational training in subject-related theoretical and business-oriented subjects. The essential objectives are: personal growth and development, creativity, teamwork, communicative skills in several languages and practical experience. After this school you […]

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. Reading is in Berkshire which is about a thirty minute train ride from London Paddington. The University itself has some significant history attached to it. It was formerly part of Oxford University’s Christ Church College but was granted independence to produce its own degrees by a Royal Charter from King George V. It was also the first university to appoint a woman as a chair at an English University level-institution in 1912. The University also boasts having the renowned Twentieth Century composer Gustav Holst as a Professor of music.  Reading University can also proclaim one of the […]

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 […]
