Immerse Alumni, Amelie, shares her career journey since Immerse
I had a great time at Immerse. I have not only learned a lot about general medicine and the basics of genetics but also found friends who I am still in contact with today. In addition to studying, we had a lot of wonderful experiences in Cambridge and London.
What has your journey looked like education and work-wise since your time at Immerse?
Since my time on Immerse’s summer school programme, I graduated from school and started studying medicine in Slovakia. This year I graduated from university and I will start working as a gynaecologist in January 2023. I also plan to write my second thesis.
How did you find Immerse helped you on your journey?
By taking part in the programme, I became so much more secure in English language that I started studying medicine in English. I was learning in English by Oxbridge tutors and speaking with mentors and peers on a daily basis. So I had the chance to really take my English skills to the next level. Furthermore, my experience at Immerse helped me in deciding to study medicine and gave me more self-confidence.
What advice would you give to students joining Immerse programmes?
I’d advise future students to be open, and use their time to make connections and enjoy an unforgettable time.
