“The most memorable experience was my time in Munich. There, I learnt to juggle my workload and leisure time, I learnt to be independent. I believe I have developed a greater bond with my peers throughout the 3 months spent in Munich. We worked hard & played hard together, helping each other in our thesis research, cooking for one another in our apartment. These are great memories for life.”
