After researching Immerse Education, I knew I had to attend Immerse Education. After graduating from IB, I wanted to continue my education by studying Mechanical Engineering in DTU. But the problem was that the university required a higher level of mathematics and my school did not offer that level of math, therefore, I had to look for a supplementary course. I first looked at supplementary courses here in Denmark, but I couldn’t find a suitable one for me as they all required me to know Danish, which I didn’t. So, I had to look for supplementary courses outside of Denmark and at the end of my research, I found Immerse Education. I quickly contacted the university to see if they would accept the programme at Immerse Education as a supplementary course and they replied with a “yes”. So, I went to my school and asked if they could help with my scholarship application. Thankfully they did accept my offer and helped with my application…finally I was enrolled in the programme.

An Unforgettable Experience

The two weeks that I spent at Cambridge was very fun and memorable, but out of all the things that we did, and apart from the unforgettable lessons we had, I must say that the best experience for me was to meet new people from all over the world. At first, I was expecting myself to not be engaged with many people, but as I spent time with them, we became close friends that at the end of the programme, it was like saying goodbye to a friend that I had known for years.

I can easily say the entire course of Mathematics that we had for two weeks was the most important thing I learned. Every single topic was interesting, challenging and also satisfying once you get to understand it. And with the help from our incredible teacher which I will never forget, made entire course was very engaging and memorable.

Before being enrolled in this programme, I was very stressed out and anxious as to what I was supposed to do. The problems I had with finding a suitable programme and finding a scholarship had me hunched and I didn’t know what to do. But thankfully, after numerous meetings and phone calls with my school and the university, I finally got what I wanted and the weight over my shoulders was gone. To this day and forward, I am, and still will be grateful for Immerse Education for offering me this scholarship and for arranging a programme so unforgettable.
