Don’t be a sheep in the herd. Make your own friends.

Travel: get the most out of your scholarship

"During the break, we organized a group trip to France, Czech Republic, and Poland. I achieved my lifelong dream of celebrating New Year in Paris. I also visited Spain with two girls from Kazakhstan who also had the DAAD grant. Can you imagine paying only 5000 tenge for a one-way ticket? Yet, the most memorable experience was when I went to Switzerland and Italy on my own. I spent around 200 euros on a 4-day bus trip.”

Do your job well

“In Germany, nobody will make a big deal out of you giving a 100% in your work. It is expected—everyone does it. Students do not even think about missing deadlines or plagiarizing. To get credit for your assignments, you must present your view and perspective on the topic you’ve learnt. Personal contribution and effort all the time. I follow this rule as a teacher of English preparing for lessons with my students. If I don’t devote my time and resources to make the lessons engaging and lively, then what is the point of such work?”
