学生的故事

安德斯

和ers-moller-jensen来访的Ph值.D. U2电竞体育平台痴呆研究协会的学生

在丹麦,研究生被鼓励出国作为他们学习的一部分. 目的是获得在丹麦无法获得的知识, broaden the student’s professional network 和 learn about post-grad educations in other countries. 

与我的研究有关, it was an obvious choice to contact Professor Dawn Brooker 和 ask if it was possible to stay at the Association for Dementia Studies for 3 month. The reply was swift 和 welcoming, 和 right from the first contact Dawn made sure I was introduced to relevant people in her organization to ease my preparation 和 travel to Worcester.

招收访问博士.D. student 和 introduction to the team was well prepared, so right from the beginning I felt at home. 就时间而言, 我的访问始于9月份, 所以我被邀请参加了很多团队会议. That gave an incredible insight into how they work, 和 what knowledge to access during my stay. It is 因此 advisable to have a dialogue with the university early on in terms of optimal timing of your visit.

 During the stay it will probably be possible to get involved in some project 和 it advisable as much as your own Ph.D. 计划允许. 此外,不要拒绝与同事分享你的观点和知识. Remember as much as you learn for visiting them - they also benefit from having fresh thoughts brought into their work life.

In terms of living in Worcester the university was helpful in arranging for me to stay in Barrington House. There you’ll have the opportunity to meet other post-grad students visiting Worcester 和 socialize with them. 这为其他研究领域提供了一些有趣的见解, 什么总是有助于发展你的科学知识. Worcester in itself is a beautiful English city with a good array of shopping 和 restaurants available.  The travel to Worcester is easy with train from Birmingham International Airport 和 only 3 hours from London if you will take the opportunity to visit other parts of the country whilst here.

毫无疑问,我鼓励别人去参观U2电竞体育平台. 你在这里的时候, 记住,把自己更多地看作是同事,而不是客人, 和 you will gain friends for life.

弗朗西斯卡

francesca-serra我是意大利帕多瓦大学的博士生.

我的研究领域是情绪障碍的评估. 我的大学给了我这个绝佳的机会去国外学习.

It took me a while to choose the right place for my adventure as I wanted to make sure I made the right decision. Working 和 studying abroad is not always how you would imagine it: expectations could not be met, the experience could be disappointing 和, 大多数时候, staying away from home can be very difficult, 尤其是当你对自己的工作不满意的时候.

I chose the U2电竞体育平台, 尤其是丽莎·琼斯教授(心理医学教授), because her research group’s work on mood disorders seemed the most interesting 和 complete in the various fields of research on bipolar disorder. There was another reason that convinced me to choose Lisa: it was her friendliness 和 her commitment demonstrated by the emails we exchanged before my arrival.

I was very excited but scared at the same time when I arrived in Worcester as I did not know what to expect from this experience. 我将, 因此, like to thank the organization of the U2电竞体育平台 for the warm welcome (a lovely student helped me to settle in my accommodation 和 in the campus on my first day). 在那些紧张的日子里,美丽的环境有助于改变我的情绪. 我指的是我所在的绿色校园:树木, 草, the animals 和 the smell of nature everywhere! I was able to book excellent accommodation in Barrington House (owned by the U2电竞体育平台). 我想感谢我在巴林顿之家的室友, 尤其是安德斯 Moeller Jensen(另一名访问博士生), 来自丹麦),成为了我可以倾诉的朋友,每天都和他玩得很开心!

The most important thanks goes to the Mood Disorders 研究 Group for making me feel like home since the first day 和 for being lovely people outside of work, 感谢你信任我,让我觉得自己很适合这个团队. 我很高兴能在一个双相情感障碍的大样本中调查躁郁症, 和 mood disorders in relation to menopause. Thanks to Prof Lisa Jones for being such a strong 和 capable guide for me in the work as well in the life; Dr Kath Gordon-Smith for her unique 和 daily patience 和 sweetness; Amy Perry 和 Sarah Knott for their smile 和 friendship; Lizzie Ludlow for her kindness.

I have already been here for three months, 我可以肯定地说,我没有更好的选择. I find myself surrounded by competent 和 esteemed people in the research as well as humble 和 sensitive at appreciating 和 listening to my ideas. 我相信这次经历对我的专业和个人成长都非常重要, 我想我还有很多东西要向伍斯特情绪障碍研究小组学习.

The city of Worcester is small 和 friendly. 有很多绿地,河和桥都很漂亮. 那里有不错的商店,不错的英国酒吧,我甚至还找到了一家不错的意大利餐厅.  意大利的城市有很多不同,尤其是各种不同的运动.

This is my experience in Worcester, newer 和 richer every day, 和 it will continue until February! I just wanted to give an advice to anyone who might take the same path: choose the right place 和 go for it with a confident attitude.
