It has been no bed of roses, as the song would say, but hard work pays off eventually. Ten international students from the University of Miskolc were awarded with honorary medals for the excellent results achieved in the previous semester. “This appreciation will have a great impact on my career”, Zartasha, on of the awarded students, believes.

Memorial medals were granted for students of the Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering, as well as for students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Informatics, and for the students of the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering. We asked some of the awardees about their impressions on receiving the medals.

Pooja Kalpura Jagadesh comes from India and she studies here at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering. Pooja received a Gold Medal. “The academic appreciation award does encourage students to perform to their best. I would like to thank University of Miskolc for providing me an opportunity to study here and also for recognizing my academic performance” Pooja says. While she believes that the curriculum here is designed well keeping in mind that, students come from different academic background and specializations, Pooja also thinks that including more practical sessions will surely help students understand the concepts better and implement them in real scenarios.  “The best part of the whole journey is getting to meet people from different parts of the world. I am intrigued to learn more about different countries and their cultures through personal interactions which goes beyond what I know from the news” Pooja told us.

Zartasha Khan Saduzai is pursuing a Master’s Degree at the Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering. She told us she received a Gold Medal in her Bachelor’s studies too, back in Pakistan, but the appreciation received in Miskolc made her feel differently, as it was her first international academic achievement. “My family is really proud of me and it will have great impact on my career. Above all, it boosts up my confidence and moral”, Zartasha believes.

She reckons that the academic program here is a unique combination of geosciences and petroleum engineering which was exactly what she was looking for. “It hasn’t been an easy journey, but with the immense support we have got from our department and friends, here I am approaching the final of my studies.” In one word, Zartasha would describe her international experience as “unforgettable”. “I made friends from around the globe with whom we created beautiful memories. My life is more colorful with the different shades of culture, food and people.”

There is always a conference he is attending or preparing for. Since he started his studies, Muhammad Nur Ali Akbar from Indonesia succeeded in achieving numerous prizes nationally and internationally. You can find out more about his achievements in our previous articles:

“They called me as the first student to show on the stage at the UoM Academic Honorary medal ceremony. ‘Exceptional!’ - I started my impressions with this word. This Gold academic honorary medal is strongly dedicated to my lovely family. I will never forget this moment of my life. Moreover, other achievements from different international conferences and competitions during my studies at the University of Miskolc have triggered me to spread motivation through the young people in my country. I hope I can inspire them, as there are millions of talented students having a dream to study in Europe. Jó szerencsét!”
