What did you like most about GCE?

Katharina Funk

"I really liked the opportunities to go to international conferences, such like IBPES and COP and the first-hand experience of climate negotiations."
- GCE 2016

Dr. Sia Gosheva-Oney

"When I started studying GCE, we were 7 people altogether in my year, which allowed for a very intensive supervision from the side of the GCE profs; additionally, the study course supported our education by enabling us to visit international conferences and to participate in summer and winter schools. One amazing experience I had was a summer school in the Brazilian Amazon, where we did research with international students, experienced new cultures, and lived on a boat."
- GCE 2007

 Patrick von Jeetze

"The liberty of choosing most of the curriculum, including Science Schools, freely and according to my interests. GCE also provided an array of opportunities to partake in high-level meetings such as IPBES and the UNFCCC COP. Since GCE is embedded in the Elite Network of Bavaria, this provides further chances for networking and exchange with peers from various backgrounds."
- GCE 2016

Farina Hoffmann

"International students, student coordination was fantastic and always helpful, community among the students."
- GCE 2016

Md Lookman Hossain

"I liked the course modules those divided into three fields, where I found freedom to choose my interested courses.
In addition, methods courses were very helpful to advance my research and analytical skills. Participation at a science school in La Palma, Canary Islands in 2015 was one of the most fruitful and exciting events in my GCE study. I also appreciate the enormous supports I got from GCE coordination office."
