Speaking of books and studies, come exams and everyone falls ...

The software privileges for Uni Stuttgart students

The not so daunting PhD Application

The not so daunting PhD Application
Let’s call them decision junctures. We face them quite frequently. Where the path that we had been traveling splits into two (or sometimes more!) and we have to take one of them.  The decisions that we make at these junctures often decide the way we will be living the rest of our lives.

What changes when you study abroad?

Forte, soul, creativity and Meraki

Forte, soul, creativity and Meraki
Meraki! The moment I heard the word, I had a crack at making funny rhyming words. There were quite a few but on a serious note, I related it to something that had to do with art. Vague enough but close enough. Heard from a friend that it meant a synergistic outcome when you put your heart and soul into it. Synergy, check. Heart and soul, double check. That was my impression when I witnessed the wa...
