My Germany Experience

Pooja Tanwer
(ya.pooja@daadindia.org)

Semester Exchange - Life Sciences, University of Würzburg
I received a DAAD scholarship during my PhD to pursue part of my PhD work at Department of Microbiology, University of Wuerzburg, Germany. As DAAD itself says “Germany - Land of Ideas”, I believe this holds really true. Apart from free education and great opportunities, there is a lot to learn in terms of culture and history of Germany. There is so much to learn from Germans, like time management, efficiency, punctuality, hard work, and work-life balance. Moreover, the living cost in Germany is quite affordable and provides a chance to travel and appreciate the beautiful landscapes. Experience gained from studying and living in Germany will not only broaden your thinking horizons, but will also benefit you in life.

Internship - Metal Organic Frameworks, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
I got an opportunity to pursue a six-months internship at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. I still remember letting out a whoop of joy on receiving the acceptance from KIT and what followed was a journey filled with an invigorating learning experience. Brainstorming with brilliant researchers, meeting new and exciting people, trying different cuisines, and of course, exploring Europe during the weekends are some of the things that Germany gave me. Germany being situated almost in the centre of Europe provided me an opportunity to visit 16 different countries in 6 months. There aren't enough words to describe how these six months in Germany changed my outlook towards life, and helped in broadening my horizons.
