Adventures in Berlin

Guten tag!

In January, I was lucky enough to study abroad at Humboldt University in Berlin, thanks to BUiLD. It was an incredible adventure that I wouldn’t have experienced if I had just travelled there for a holiday.

At UTS, I study forensic biology but the course I chose to complete in Germany was “Human Rights: Gender, Racism and Social Justice”, which was definitely challenging considering how different it is to science. However, I don’t regret it at all – in fact, I learned so much and I feel far more aware of the issues relating to human rights which I would have otherwise been unaware of.

Humboldt University also organised cultural activities for all students and it really exposed us to Germany’s history and culture. Our timetable allowed us to learn and explore without any stress, which definitely made this trip extremely worthwhile.

I would highly recommend students to participate in a study abroad experience when given the opportunity as it’s a great way to become more independent and learn about different cultures. If you are curious as to what kind of places you can visit in Berlin, click here to watch a video I made about my experience.
