Student Profiles

Taulant Yzellari

Graduated in 2021

"The campus itself is organised in a way that offers a perfect environment for studies but also for free time. It’s located, in what I think is one of the best parts of the city, near parks to relax in after lectures. There are also libraries dotted around campus equipped with the latest literature. And there are several canteens that offer healthy food at affordable prices."

Agne Kajackaite

"I have learned a lot in my Master’s studies. I got to run my first experiment. My Master’s studies made me understand what I want to do in my life."
