The 2nd week of the EMABG Welcome Course really flew by!

The second week of the EMABG Welcome Course started off with an introduction to finding literature and a presentation of library services and lab facilities at UGOE. On Tuesday students attended a session on intercultural competencies, including the building of bridges, finding out about personal comfort zones and ways to overcome culture shock. On Wednesday the focus was on writing scientific and translingual texts, whereas the emphasis on Thursday was on academic careers and working in Europe.The Welcome Course concluded with a visit to Lehr- und Forschungsgut Ruthe and valuable practical insights into livestock keeping in Germany.

Many thanks to all UGOE speakers, to Ruthe Research Station and of course to all EMABG students for their energy, active participation and cooperation. We wish you all the best for the start of your studies at WUR and UGOE!

Just concluded our two-week joint EMABG Welcome Course and Summer School held online at BOKU. We were so happy to reunite with EMABG 2019 students and equally happy to meet the EMABG 2020 intake.

The second part of recording for the virtual excursion was equally exciting. We visited the beautiful region of Eastern Styria and got insights into milk testing, cow and sheep breeding and artificial insemination.
