Arna Óskarsdóttir
5.0 01.09.2009
Das Beste: Throughout my studies I was most drawn to the mathematical and the programming courses and therefore I was certain that this was the right programme for me. I was also drawn to the excellent reputation of the schools I am now studying within, TU Delft and KTH, as well as the international mix of students they both have. I have now finished my first year at TU Delft and will continue my second year at KTH. After a hard working and demanding year at the Applied Mathematical department at TU Delft I have gained a tremendous knowledge in both theoretical and applied mathematics. I have also had the opportunity to get to know students from a broad range of countries like, Canada, Columbia and Indonesia not to mention all the fantastic Dutch students and teachers of the school. Delft is a lovely town which I fell in love with and will for sure visit again in the coming years. Now my journey continues to Stockholm where I will start by taking an intensive course in Swedish to be able to adapt quicker to the culture before starting the second year of the COSSE program which I am really looking forward too .I truly believe that the COSSE programme is the ri

AFEPA - European Master in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis

5.0 01.09.2010
Das Beste: My name is Andrea and I was an AFEPA student from 2010-2012 so I´m the first generation graduate. I was born in Slovakia. After Bachelor studies at the Slovak University of Agriculture (Nitra, Slovakia), I decided to apply for AFEPA. My destinations were Uppsala and Budapest. ¿What's the best? Firstly, the friendship and cultural sharing. I met some great people during those two years and they made my life special. In fact, they also changed me. Everything passed so quickly and now (six months after everything is over) my mind is pulsing with a strange feeling of nostalgia. Secondly, the professional background. I found out in which direction I want to lead my life and what I want to do. I got a real passion for rural development issues, specially related to the Central European region from where I come from and where I was born. Thirdly, the independence and personal development. I’ve learnt to COOK! I’ve learnt to manage my monthly budget and I’ve learnt to take care of myself hundreds/thousands kilometers away from home.

AMASE - Joint European Master Programme on Advanced Materials Science and Engineering

José Alejandro Delgado Rangel
5.0 01.09.2009
Das Beste: When I have been accepted to start the AMASE-master in Barcelona, I thought in the opportunity to travel in Europe, to meet people of different cultures and to learn other languages. But, even if it is happened, even if my entire Erasmus Mundus story is culturally rich, I have never thought in the friendship that I would enjoy and that is my best milestone from AMASE. This experience has encouraged me to always search a synergy with others, not only professionally but personally also. Today, I am living in Nancy, France; doing my PhD in solid-mechanics at the University of Strasbourg and; working on a project with the Public Research Centre Henri Tudor in Luxembourg. In this way, I keep the European way-of-life developed during the AMASE experience, working on materials science. In my professional experience the scientific skills learnt during the AMASE-master are kindly important on my actual work. Finally, the values developed in my Erasmus-Mundus activity have shown to me the importance of partnership, perseverance and passion for science. These values with a bit of discipline are, for me, the main needs to do a successful high-quality

DMKM - Data Mining & Knowledge Management

Alexey Grigorev
5.0 01.09.2012
Das Beste: As a graduate I applied to the Erasmus Mundus Master's Program in Data Mining and Knowledge Management (DMKM) for the fundamental study of Data Mining and related aspects such as Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Statistical Modeling. Not only it was the curriculum attractive for me, but the general idea of the Erasmus Mundus programme of cultural exchange trough mobility and academic cooperation is also appealing. Upon finishing the program I plan to pursue PhD and combine professional and teaching activities. The qualification obtained through the studies will allow me to easily enroll in any doctoral program, and I am specifically interested in researches conducted by Université Libre de Bruxelles and Poznán University of Technology. Teaching is also important for me, because besides building my career I am enthusiastic about sharing my experience and knowledge with others.

FloodRisk - Flood Risk Management

Siobhán Gleeson
5.0 01.09.2012
Das Beste: I received a full scholarship to participate in a 2 year, Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Flood Risk Management. During the course I studied in four universities across Europe specialising in several different areas of flooding such as hydro-science and engineering, hydroinformatics, coastal engineering, spatial planning and the socio-economic risks involved with flood disasters.
