After 2 study abroad experiences in college I wanted nothing more than to live abroad again…specifically in Europe. I yearned for the architecture, the food… EasyJet! I loathed having a car or the idea that I needed to ‘get a real job’. It was as if my family and friends thought having global experiences was detrimental to my future/career and that all it was was a vacation. They didn’t understand how it transformed me, pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me grow. To appease my parents and keep my heart from breaking, I chose to attend graduate school in Europe (instead of what I really wanted to do — travel).

It seemed like the responsible thing to do.

Grad School in Europe sounds crazy right? Well, I figured that:

  • I’d get to live in Europe for another 2 years,
  • I’d leave with a master’s degree ; and 
  • I’d get to live live in multiple countries (it was a multi-site master’s program).

Win-win, right? While my motives for enrolling in the master’s program were far from calculated at first, it ended up putting me on the professional trajectory I’m on now. One that I love and am so grateful for.

  2. Talking with Pouneh and consulting her have been a huge help for me 🙂 I wanted to get a Master’s degree abroad but there are thousands of universities and programs that I got totally confused and lost. However, thanks to Pouneh, right now I am studying at the program in Germany which I believe is the best for me, I could not have asked for something better ! She is very knowledgable and she directed me to resources that I was not even aware of. She advised me to check some websites for detailed descriptions of programs and available scholarships. She was always there during my application process and helped me out with great tips. I gave my life a whole new way deciding to study abroad and I can never thank enough to Pouneh for her precious contributions !


    1. I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying your experience in Germany! I’m glad my previous research on grad school in Germany helped you find the best program for you. Please feel free to contact me in the future if you need any other assistance. – Pouneh


  3. Thanks to the professional assistance of Pouneh, I am now studying at my dream university in Europe with a full-scholarship!

    While I was studying as an undergraduate, I decided to continue my education in an MA programme abroad. I picked 4 universities I am interested in studying at, and I prepared separate application materials for each one. In this process, Pouneh’s assistance was valuable and professional. She revised my CV and motivation letter, gave me very useful feedback and edited my documents. Together with the technical assistance, she was also quite helpful with her guidance about the conceptual issues, such as what a motivation letter should include, what kind of details a committee expects to see in your CV. As a result, I got accepted by the Uppsala, Freiburg, Heidelberg, and Humboldt Universities. I am now studying at the Humboldt-University of Berlin and I am really happy with my life here! Those who are interested in studying in the top European universities should not hesitate a minute to work with Pouneh and get her help in making their dreams real!
