Why did you go?
It's an invaluable opportunity to develop industrial skills and working experiences, as well as gain insights and develop capabilities for my future career.
What did a typical day look like?
In the early days, I needed to adapt myself to working in an entirely new environment including culture, language and the way of local life. But shortly after I arrived, I managed to find plenty of fun activities to do and new experiences. Typically, I will explore the city and engaged in several events as well as travelling to the different places across Europe over the weekends and day-offs. This internship in Germany gave me an invaluable experience of both work and life.

Favourite dish or meal on your experience?
Pastéis de Belém. It's not a meal but rather a tart made by egg. Pastéis de Belém is the original egg tart made in Portugal and this one is the best egg tart ever in life!!
What was your favourite event/weekend trip or activity you participated in?
Trip to Portugal and Spain. I travelled to Porto, Lisbon and Barcelona during my summer holiday break. It's was a perfect place to hang out and relatively cheap too!
Any advice for future students?
Be brave and open. Don't be too afraid to try new things and experiences. It will gain you more than what you imagine! I will return to Germany in the future. Life in Germany is an invaluable experience and I‘d love to be there again!
