Dorina Dedgjoni, ICEUS-14:

ICEUS provides an excellent opportunity for merging in-depth academic knowledge and valuable experience of working in a multicultural environment. It is an academically challenging program which confronts the Intercultural Communication and European Studies topics not only with new methodological approaches, but also with new ways of working in a globalized world. Studying ICEUS has given me the chance to learn from diversity and embrace new ways of thinking, by participating in discussions and sharing experiences with highly motivated colleagues from all over the world. The internship during the master’s program allows you to build up experience, confidence and further career opportunities within multicultural teams. Most significantly for me, ICEUS opened the doors towards a further educational pathway, by giving me the opportunity to pursue a PhD within a stimulating and interacting international scientific environment at the Graduate Center in Social Sciences for Globalization, European Integration, Intercultural Studies of Hochschule Fulda University of Applied Sciences.

David Alejandro Muñiz-Hernandez, ICEUS-17:
The ICEUS program of the Department of Social and Cultural Sciences at the University Fulda gave me a unique opportunity to focus on areas of intercultural communication theory, European law, globalization and European integration. 
Not only has my master’s degree strengthened my critical thinking tremendously but opened up a new horizon of career options. I was recently given the opportunity to pursue my research through a PhD position at the University of Fulda. The University of Applied Sciences of Fulda provides the most collaborative environment for graduate student researchers I have encountered thus far. Bringing together researchers from multiple fields in one center not only promotes keeping up-to-date with research in different fields, but also provides opportunities for collaboration and fresh perspectives on your own research. Through my experiences at the Department of Social and Cultural Sciences, I have made life-long connections and keep developing skills and techniques which will pave the start to a career in research.
