Thanks to my supervisor, Prof. Dr. Judit Navracsics, I have learned that the Institute of Advanced Studies Kőszeg (iASK) would offer a two-week International Summer University to young and curious students, who are eager to learn about European countries and are ready to make an impact on them.
I was extremely happy that I was given the opportunity to deepen my knowledge in such a welcoming environment as the campuses of the University of Pannonia and iASK is. Needless to say, I was excited to learn from the University speakers, lecturers, and guests from around the world – all of them fascinating, intelligent people. More specifically, I was taught new things through multidisciplinary approach about various fundamental issues, such as world religions, migration and security policy in Europe, climate change and sustainability.
There are no words to express the visual beauty of the town of Kőszeg that greeted me every morning on my way to the University’s venue, Europe house. Furthermore, the University organizers conducted several thematical excursions around Kőszeg that provided me with loads of information on the history of the town and its people. I need to mention that I explored not only Kőszeg but also two wonderful towns of Slovenia, Maribor and Lendva, by participating in a city tour and a visit to Alma Mater Europaea.
Overall, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to iASK representatives for this remarkable opportunity to spend a qualitative time during the summer break. I am sure the knowledge and experience I have acquired there will benefit my studies and future career.
