First of all, a warm welcome to the IMFSE newcomers! Very soon the classes will start and you will be able to fully feel like Fire Safety Engineering Master students.
This year we are welcoming 20 freshmen who join our program. And thanks to the significant financial support of the IMFSE sponsors, this year there are 12 scholarships granted to the students! (as opposed to our generation with 5 ones). That is the good news because the increasing number of scholarship encourages more student to apply to IMFSE program! More students -> more good fire safety engineers -> safer the world.
And also let’s not forget that IMFSE is a part of Erasmus+ framework, and Erasmus Joint Master Degrees programs are financed by the European Commission which primarily based in Brussels. During the summer recess, Gerard and me had a chance to visit Brussels and we have spent the day in the European Parliament. We can say that the exposition is mostly entertaining – you can take funny selfies, watch the movie about European Parliament work and visit Europaparlamentet hemicycle where all important sessions happen. This part of Brussels which includes the Parliamentarium itself and a very informative museum exposition of House of European History – definitely deserves visiting!
To conclude, the first year was full of hard work, discoveries and joy. I am so thankful for this incredible chance to be part of this European Masters. Now the second year of studying is on the way. I am full of hopes and expectations, I think my classmates and freshmen are too. By this short and may be not so informative blogpost I just want to open the new series of posts dedicated to the new 2018/2019 school year.
So let’s get it started!
