SEET in the media

An article in the ETH student newspaper Polykum of 2019 shows in an anonymized form the difficulties one of our mentees encountered when applying for her Master's degree (at that time still in the predecessor programme Back on Track, before SEET was founded). Before being accepted into our programme, she had already applied several times to several Swiss universities, but the lack of study places, where Swiss students have priority in the allocation of places, always led to rejection.

Here in Switzerland, now that her daughter has reached kindergarten age, she would like to finally pursue her chemistry career. However, she has to fight for this, because the Bachelor's degree certificate was lost due to the war, a missing current passport and the lack of a Bachelor's thesis in the Syrian curriculum initially lead to rejection by universities or language examination institutes.

For the article of the Zürcher Regionalzeitung (October 2020, also published in the 12 app), she tells about the hurdles on the way to her professional goals and how SEET supports her in overcoming them. At the moment, language is the main focus for the scientist: Manahil not only needs German but also English at C1 level to complement her Master's degree from Sudan with a Master's degree in Zurich.
