'I have experienced a taster of what higher education is like in Germany, and the similarities and differences which exist when compared against the United Kingdom. I have also made contacts with fellow students from all over the world, and have learned about different cultures and the norms and values which exist in each of them. I also feel that I have learned about aspects of my own culture, through socialising and being around people from a wealth of different countries. Overall, it has been an excellent opportunity both academically and socially, and one which I will remember throughout my life.' ​
