Meet Tamara

My name is Tamara and I graduated from UCG in 2018.

I am involved in the UCG web class and I hope this will give you a picture of education at UCG. I remember having trouble with my choice of study in high school, as I was interested in multiple different fields and did not see myself just yet specializing in only one. I am very happy I chose UCG because I found out what I am interested in most by doing all kinds of courses and projects. Another part I like from UCG is its many international students. We have people from all around the world and because of the focus on community, you get to know all of them pretty well. This also makes for a change of perspective – not focusing on your own country as much, but on the entire world.
