Tell us about your visit

– I took my first course, "Introduction to Research Methodology", in the research school. I enjoyed the interactive nature of the course, which not only facilitated learning but also provided an excellent platform for networking and the exchange of experiences and research perspectives. In the week before the course dates, I worked on proofreading the transcripts and translations of the qualitative interviews for my second objective in the PhD project.

How did it feel to visit the research group?

– I really enjoyed to gather and interact with my colleagues. It was a very pleasant stay in the welcoming, comfortable and smart working environment of the Faculty. The Christmas atmosphere was also appreciated with Christmas lunch and Lucia celebrations. I am deeply grateful for the hospitality, support and guidance during the visit.
