Hicret Atilgan, Master Student Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Trento (Italy)

I come from Konya, Turkey. I studied at the Genetics and Bioengineering Program where I earned my major degree. After completing my undergraduate studies at IUS, I continued to study in Master program of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Trento (Italy). I am planning to continue my research on Neurodegenerative Diseases at the same university.

I have many nice memories of my student years at IUS. First of all I gained a lot of knowledge and experience in a very friendly atmosphere between students and professors. Instead of competing with each other we were helping each other, which created a peaceful atmosphere and an opportunity to enjoy our studies.

Another positive thing is that since we have common lectures during the first years of studies at all programs offered at IUS I was able to make a lot of friends. And from academic perspective, it is really important for me as instead of receiving only knowledge from my choice of studies I was able to learn the basis in many different areas.

I would also like to emphasize the love I feel for Sarajevo and B & H. Sarajevo is my home. I miss the people who live there and I miss Sarajevo’s natural beauty. I cannot wait to come back and feel at home again. I would strongly encourage others to come and study at IUS as well.
