Student Testimonies

Student Testimonies

As a migration student, taking part in the double degree program gave me the opportunity to experience for myself what I had previously known only through texts – that is, leaving my home country for a whole new environment. I have grown from this experience, not only intellectually but also on a human level: going abroad is indeed the best way to learn about the world and about yourself.

I am particularly grateful for the events organized by the EuMIGS program. We were able to meet twice with all the students of the program as well as the coordinators of the partner universities. This gave rise to very enriching discussions, be it on migration research, on our aspirations and interests as students, as well as on our respective experiences of the double degree. These privileged moments, where we were strongly supported by the coordinators, confirmed time and again that I had made the right choice of studies.
