Uppsala University, Sweden
Country of origin: Armenia
Study course: Master in Investment Treaty Arbitration
Why did you decide to study abroad?
There are no limits for education, knowledge and experience. I decided to enlarge my horizons and possibilities, to achieve new heights. Borders must not prevent people from socializing and sharing. I choose a Master program abroad, which, I believe, will open important doors in front of me. I have always wanted to see and try “how do they do there” and now I am into it. To say I enjoy, would mean to say nothing. I am proud to say that my decision has been the right one.
What made you decide on this university?
I am a student of Uppsala University. I am so proud realizing this simple fact. When one decides to study arbitration, he or she is to look at the roots and traditions among many other factors. Sweden suits perfectly being a fair and neutral country with lovely traditions and customs. Uppsala University is the oldest in Scandinavia but the soul is very young, creative and innovative. I exactly knew what I wanted and learning much about the approach and the system of education here, I told myself: “This is the place where you will dive head first into infinity of knowledge and fun of student life”.
How is your experience of studying abroad?
Although it may sound immodest, I am a quite diligent student. The adaptation period past quick enough. Now I am all into the process of learning new approaches, methods and knowledge and skills. I everyday feel that I get not only theory but much useful practice and skills.
Why do you think others should not miss out on studying at your university
In Uppsala everything is thought out. My university is famous for its warm, helpful and professional administrative and academic stuff. Studying here is not merely matter of prestige but undeniable opportunities that are being opened in front of the students. On the other hand, the education provided here will justify all the expectations and make it possible to use those opportunities. Moreover, as they say in Uppsala “The city is your University”. Students are very welcomed here. This wonderful town breathes with and for students. We all are from different countries but we are at home in Uppsala. If you have a dream, Uppsala is the place to realize it.
