I met wonderful people from all over the world and different cultures who are now friends and colleagues for life, and with whom I shared rich research training. I experienced various and diverse marine environments and research labs, with great teaching and professors. Certainly, among the best moments of my life.
I have been involved in scientific projects since I finished and I think all these opportunities were possible because I did this master. Maybe I would have had a similar opportunities doing other masters. I will never know. But, I am convinced that joining this program was one of the best decisions in my life.
It was a great program full of nice professors-mentors, and great colleagues. We were like a family, all students helping each other and encouraging to succeed. I also acquired different and very interesting skills that I'm still using in my day-to-day work. I loved the full experience.
The Program enabled me to build a professional network at an European scale, by doing the courses in two countries and the Professional Practice in a third one. It also gave me the opportunity to be involved in different projects, which strengthened my professional career, skills and CV.
The Program was great to introduce the Marine Sciences fields. It was also a great opportunity to gain experience from a wide variety of universities and professors that you usually would not be able to gain in a normal master program.
