"I learned a lot about what’s currently going on in different fields of research. This helped me shape my interests for the upcoming PhD research. After my master’s, I didn’t really feel qualified to make the decision whether to do a PhD or work in the private sector right away."

Felix C. (ASP 2015/16 | Ph.D candidate, European University Institute, Florence)


"Basically I was introduced to ASP by my supervisor and I saw the opportunity to upgrade my knowledge of international economics, my English and to network with students/researchers from other universities/countries that are dealing with similar research topics."

Nataša V. (ASP 2015/2016 | Ph.D candidate, Ljubljana University)
