In my free time I like to do anything but sit still: hiking, horse riding, volleyball, snowboarding, traveling ... my favorite hobby is and remains ballroom dancing!
I decided to study Applied Chemistry because I like the concept of a university of applied sciences better than that of a university, because I really wanted to have the opportunity to go abroad and because the courses are in English. I was also convinced by the international factor. Meeting people from all over the world is so amazing!
Students and lecturers at eye level
I think I benefit a lot from the close student-professor relationship. At a university of applied sciences, you generally have more contact with your professors, but I believe that you particularly benefit from this when you study Applied Chemistry. We received a lot of support, especially regarding the upcoming practical training semester (PTS).
What interests me most about my studies is organic chemistry. I am looking forward to doing many exciting organic syntheses in the laboratory during my PTS in the USA. After my bachelor’s degree, I want to continue studying – but I do not know where exactly yet. Possibly not in Austria.
My motto is “Never miss an opportunity to learn something new”.
