New people, new experience, new contacts, new friends, new travels and new knowledge: I want to state, that only a mix of all these things makes the SMARTNET an exceptional programme, and that is what I had been expecting from the programme before I received the acceptance letter. After all, the Greek SMARTNET, in particular, became one big family which will be in my memory and in my heart forever.

It is a great pleasure and honour to be a part of such an amazing community of professionals and scientists. Also, it is a great and unique experience to study abroad.

Studying at Aston University has been a very good experience. The best thing was the chance to interact and learn about different cultures. Also, the program made me realize more about the importance of the field I am studying. The learning environment at Aston is excellent.

I would definitely recommend the programme to future students. The program provides a great opportunity to enhance skills. It allows you to travel around the world, learn about different cultures and helps you to grow as a person. And, of course, at the end of it, you’ll have a degree in a very significant field of study.
