Testimonial: Daniel Dulle (University College of Teacher Education)

IMG_0751

Dani­el Dul­le is stu­dy­ing the tea­cher-trai­ning pro­gram for beco­m­ing an ele­men­ta­ry school tea­cher at the Uni­ver­si­ty Col­le­ge of Tea­cher Edu­ca­ti­on Sty­ria.

Why are you studying the teacher-training program for becoming an elementary school teacher?

I love inte­res­ting and chal­len­ging tasks and the­se are tasks, tea­chers have to face every day. No pupil is com­pa­ra­ble to ano­t­her and for ever­y­bo­dy the mate­ri­al has to be pre­pa­red accord­in­gly. Also the desi­re to learn and the natu­ral urge of child­ren to gain know­ledge should be awa­ke­ned or sustai­ned in school. This pre­ten­se deman­ds ne wand crea­ti­ve solu­ti­ons and didac­tical know-how. I think that I con­ti­nuous­ly learn some­thing new in this job and I am able to deve­lop mys­elf. That is exact­ly why this care­er choice is right for me.

How did you learn about this study program?

Through my work at the child­ren muse­um Graz „FRi­da & freD“ I lear­ned that I enjoy com­mu­ni­ca­ting know­ledge to kids and teen­agers and that I am able to arou­se enthu­si­asm wit­hin pupils for a topic. After having thought about it some time and encou­ra­ge­ment by my pri­va­te sur­roun­dings I regis­te­red for the admis­si­on pro­ce­du­re.

What do you especially like about your studies?

You start to gain les­son prac­tice from the first semes­ter onwards and so you can find out soon, if you are made for beco­m­ing a tea­cher. In addi­ti­on, the­re are nume­rous addi­tio­nal offers, which allow you to focus on your own inte­rests.

What makes your university unique?

The dif­fe­ren­tia­ti­on and advan­ce­ment of indi­vi­du­al strengths are not only seen as con­tents, which have to be con­vey­ed, but are also lived. So every stu­dent is able to unfold his or her own strengths and deve­lop them. In a plea­sant an moti­va­tio­nal atmo­s­phe­re nume­rous crea­ti­ve ide­as deve­lop, which can be tested in the les­son prac­tice.

You should become a teacher?

I think, espe­ci­al­ly peop­le, who love to work with kids and teen­agers should think about beco­m­ing a tea­cher. Of cour­se, your own approach towards the topic of learning is of high impor­t­an­ce becau­se only if I have a posi­ti­ve approach towards the topic I can moti­va­te pupils to learn. In addi­ti­on, a high degree of fle­xi­bi­li­ty is nee­ded becau­se in school life, unex­pec­ted chan­ge of plans is very com­mon.

Have you alre­ady taken classes/courses at other Styrian uni­ver­si­ties or par­ti­ci­pa­ted in col­la­bo­ra­tive projects?

Until now I have not taken any clas­ses at other uni­ver­si­ties. But I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­ti­ci­pa­te in an inter­na­tio­nal pro­ject with edu­ca­ti­on-coope­ra­ti­on-part­ners of the Uni­ver­si­ty Col­le­ge of Tea­cher Edu­ca­ti­on Sty­ria.

Why are so many young people drawn to Sty­ria for their stu­dies? What is so spe­cial about this uni­ver­sity location?

I think that Sty­ria is a very attrac­tive loca­ti­on for stu­dents becau­se it offers nume­rous fiel­ds of stu­dy at dif­fe­rent uni­ver­si­ties. Also the Sty­ri­an infra­st­ruc­tu­re offers ide­al living con­di­ti­ons for young peop­le. So the­re are not only gre­at pos­si­bi­li­ties for stu­dy­ing but you also have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get a part time job and Sty­ria offers a gre­at amount of cul­tu­re and free time activi­ties.

Testimonial: Katharina Rajovic (FH CAMPUS 02)

Rajovic

Katha­ri­na Rajo­vic has com­ple­ted the under­gra­dua­te pro­gram „ Auto­ma­ti­on Tech­no­lo­gy “ at FH CAMPUS 02.

Why have you studied „Automation Technology“?

The extra-occupa­tio­nal stu­dy pro­gram „Auto­ma­ti­on Tech­no­lo­gy“ is very diver­si­fied. It con­ta­ins topics of elec­tro­nic engi­nee­ring, com­pu­ta­tio­nal stu­dies as well as sys­tems engi­nee­ring. The pro­gram is com­ple­ted with the inter­ces­si­on of eco­no­mic under­stan­ding as well as soft skills – so you can enjoy a very exten­si­ve edu­ca­ti­on. In addi­ti­on, an extra-occupa­tio­nal stu­dy pro­gram offers the oppor­tu­ni­ty to app­ly recent­ly lear­ned things in pro­fes­sio­nal life.

How did you learn about your studies?

After having finis­hed my edu­ca­ti­on at a Hig­her Tech­ni­cal Insti­tu­te, it was clear to me that I want to stu­dy at uni­ver­si­ty. My pre­vious edu­ca­ti­on was focu­sed on elec­tro­nic engi­nee­ring and com­pu­ter engi­nee­ring. Becau­se I am natu­ral­ly some­bo­dy who takes a look bey­ond one’s own nose and I sear­ched for a stu­dy pro­gram which would deepen my know­ledge and open new realms. „Auto­ma­ti­on Tech­no­lo­gy“ for­med a gre­at frame­work for my needs.

What did you especially like about your studies?

The con­cur­rence of the sub­jects of elec­tro­nic engi­nee­ring, com­pu­ter engi­nee­ring as well as sys­tems engi­nee­ring give this stu­dy pro­gram its very own charm and mult­idi­sci­pli­na­ry.

Why was your university special?

Becau­se of the small clas­ses, the uni­ver­si­ty of app­lied sci­en­ces CAMPUS 02 offers very per­so­nal con­tact bet­ween stu­dents and lec­tu­rers. The class grows into a com­mu­ni­ty over the cour­se of time and we sup­port each other. This fami­li­al atmo­s­phe­re is also sup­por­ted by lec­tu­rers and the other per­son­nel at the uni­ver­si­ty.

Who should study „Automation Technology”?

Auto­ma­ti­on Tech­no­lo­gy„ is the right field of stu­dy for all peop­le who do not want to tie oneself down on one sub­ject. Elec­tro­nic engi­nee­ring, com­pu­ter engi­nee­ring as well as sys­tems engi­nee­ring offer the ide­al basis for a job wit­hin a mult­idi­sci­pli­na­ry field.

Have you alre­ady taken classes/courses at other Styrian uni­ver­si­ties or participated in collaborative projects?

Wit­hin the frame­work of dif­fe­rent lec­tures, we had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to visit lec­tures given by pro­fes­sors from the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty Graz.

Why are so many young people drawn to Styria for their studies? What is so special about this uni­ver­sity location?

Sty­ria offers a gre­at varie­ty of uni­ver­si­ties and uni­ver­si­ties op app­lied sci­en­ces for a sin­gle regi­on. The offer of free time activi­ties in the city as well as in natu­re is uni­que. Fol­lo­wing the mot­to „not to small, but not to too big“ the­re is a homey atmo­s­phe­re in Graz. The open-min­ded­ness of the Sty­ri­an peop­le cau­ses lots of stu­dents to stay in Graz after finis­hing their stu­dies.

Testimonial: Maximilian Mächler (Medical University)

Portrait 2_1

Maxi­mi­li­an Mäch­ler is stu­dy­ing Medi­ci­ne at the Medi­cal Uni­ver­si­ty Graz.

Why are you studying Medicine?

I am stu­dy­ing Medi­ci­ne becau­se I enjoy the inte­res­ting and deman­ding work wit­hin an inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry team, the con­stant con­tact with humans and the gre­at selec­tion of care­er oppor­tu­nities. In addi­ti­on, and I was able to expe­ri­ence this alre­ady by mys­elf during internships, the honest thank of ano­t­her human being is the big­gest and most beau­ti­ful suc­cess.

How did you learn about this field of study? 

Through the occupa­ti­on of my par­ents I have con­sis­tent con­tact with the medi­cal fiel­ds sin­ce my child­hood. Through this, I was able to get insights into the good as well as the bad moments wit­hin this pro­fes­si­on.

What do you espe­cially like about your studies? 

The diver­si­ty. You get insights into every field of the cli­ni­cal and pre­cli­ni­cal medi­ci­ne and you can choo­se a spe­cia­li­za­ti­on, which fits your inte­rest best.

What makes your uni­ver­sity unique?

Becau­se my uni­ver­si­ty is fol­lo­wing a spe­cial cur­ri­cu­lum you are in con­tact with the same col­leagues for a lon­ger peri­od of time. Through this, I was able to make many good acquain­tan­ces and meet a few very good fri­ends. In addi­ti­on, a spe­cial form of col­leagueship deve­lops. Peop­le help and sup­port each other and I am sure that this will con­ti­nue after finis­hing our stu­dies.

Who should study Medicine?

Ever­yo­ne, who does not only see the occupa­ti­on as doc­tor as a pro­fes­si­on. Ever­yo­ne, who is wil­ling to work bey­ond the com­pul­so­ry becau­se it is his/her con­vic­tion. Ever­yo­ne, who is able to take oneself back to help others.

Have you alre­ady taken classes/courses at other Sty­rian uni­ver­si­ties or par­ti­ci­pa­ted in col­la­bo­ra­tive projects?

I did some sports clas­ses, lan­guage cour­ses and some other cour­ses at other uni­ver­si­ties toge­ther with fri­ends, who stu­dy other fiel­ds of stu­dy. In addi­ti­on, toge­ther with col­leagues I imple­men­ted the idea of a stu­dent con­gress (ISC Med Uni Graz), which intends to con­nect with other uni­ver­si­ties.

Why are so many young people drawn to Sty­ria for their stu­dies? What is so spe­cial about this uni­ver­sity location?

The mix­tu­re bet­ween city and natu­re, bet­ween work and leisu­re, is a gre­at plus which Graz has to offer.
