Undergraduate Programme in Biotechnology

Sara Rovira is a student of the Undergraduate Programme in Biotechnology at IQS and did an international exchange in the Grenoble INP University in France. She had the opportunity to go abroad for 5 months during the first semester of her fourth year at IQS.

You can read about Sara's experience in France below:

 

I chose to go to Grenoble to study a semester because it was the location that best suited my needs. My idea was to finish the degree in four years and IQS makes it very easy for you to finish within that period even if you decide to study abroad. I had the opportunity to study subjects like biomaterials and implants for 5 months, although we spent fewer hours in the lab compared to IQS.

The university helped me to find residence and held welcome workshops so that we could learn about the city, the university and bureaucratic issues, like learning hot to open a bank account. I think it's necessary to know a bit of French to be able to move around the country, but it is really helpful that the university offers different courses. Grenoble is also a beautiful town surrounded by the Alps. I got to visit the mountain several times to go hiking or skiing.

I believe that this experience has been a big benefit at the professional level. Having an international experience makes you leave from your comfort zone and take a risk, which companies value highly. I have grown a lot at the personal level. I have had the opportunity to get to know people from other countries, including people from Sweden, Turkey and Italy. It has allowed me to open my mind and understand cultural differences that I didn't see before. I would recommend this unique experience without a doubt. In my case it was the first time I lived alone in a different country and with a different language. It's a challenge, but it is truly worth it".
