“When I was choosing international relations as the sphere of my future interests three years ago, of course, I also thought about going on an internship at a foreign university during my studies. At the end of 2021, I found out about the opportunity to apply for an internship in another country, I chose Hungary, because the conditions of the scholarship turned out to be the most suitable for me. I took a chance and won.
At the University of Pécs, lectures are given by teachers with a high English proficiency, so I didn’t experience any problems in learning. I was able to attend lectures read not only by Hungarian teachers, but also by invited foreign teachers from Turkey, the USA, the Czech Republic and even from Ethiopia.
Overall, my stay in Hungary was comfortable. It is a beautiful country in the center of Europe, with magnificent architecture, rich history and interesting traditions. I would also like to say that the city of Pécs has an ancient history and preserves the memory of the former greatness of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires. The Peter and Paul's Cathedral Basilica, where Franz Liszt played the organ, the Mosque of Pasha Kasim, as well as ancient Christian burials are the reasons why the city is particularly famous.
I must say that I got this experience thanks to studying at my dear ISU Faculty of History and to the assistance of the teachers of our department.
To sum up, I would like to encourage students who are thinking about internships abroad not to be afraid of anything and take risks.”
