"During the programme, we obtain insight into the needs of the corporate world which is good to keep in mind when studying theories or working with experiments in the lab.

Moreover, the group work is beneficial as preparation for our future jobs as we will also be collaborating in order to find solutions in a future workplace.

We have a good and close relationship with our teachers and professors, and our teaching is characterised by a high degree of dialogue."

 "Studying biotechnology at Aalborg University was one of the best choices that I have ever made.

Being in Denmark at Aalborg University, collaborating and working with international researchers and a good team in well-equipped scientific laboratories was a great experience.

Not only gaining experience for an academic career but also being in Aalborg gave me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, experience new cultures and traditions and new ways of life.

I will never forget the warm-hearted and smiling faces of the Biotechnology Department.

I had a wonderful time and returned to my country personally and academically more mature and self-confident."

“One of the things I value the most about studying at Aalborg University is that the study environment is so relaxed and free. It makes the study more fun and interesting because you independently have to take responsibility for your own learning.

Moreover, the people are really friendly in Aalborg, which is perhaps the greatest thing about studying in Denmark. It has been a great experience to meet so many wonderful people and live in a city like Aalborg that is full of activity and opportunities.

Also, I like that Aalborg University is spread out in the city, because I get to travel around and see different parts of Aalborg.”

"After I started studying sustainable biotechnology in 2010, I found that the course content at Aalborg University is closely bonded to the developing situation in related industries and carefully designed to prepare you for real-life work.

The PBL (problem based learning) model gives us enough flexibility to develop our own project and motivates us to gain more knowledge and technical skills during the project work.

Through the group work in each semester, I have learned how to work in a team, how to manage our project, and how to communicate with others in the group."

"In the master’s programme in Oil and Gas Technology the teachers are always ready to help and to have a dialogue with the students.

During the other semesters I have studied in Bordeaux where the teaching style is more theoretical. At Aalborg University it is more practical, and it is an entirely different way of learning.

In addition, we make the most of each other by working together in groups."

“I enjoy studying at Aalborg University because the way of working here is new to me and very different from what I am used to.

As a student at Aalborg University, you actively participate in your own learning process. For instance, the lecturers expect you to do research yourself, read articles, and really dig into the subjects.

It is the same principle when we do projects. We have to gather our own data which means that we have to interact and reach out to companies outside of the university.

Through the project work, I have learned a lot about group work, communication, structuring, and planning, which are all qualities I can make use of in my future job.

In the future, I see myself working for an international company where I can travel to many different countries. Living in Denmark has taught me how to adapt to a foreign culture which I see as a great competency when I will apply for my dream job.”
