Brandt School Universität Erfurt

Cameroonian student featured in the local newspaper

On January 5, 2015, the TLZ newspaper (Thüringer Landeszeitung) reported on one of our African students. Thirty year old Theresia Atemkeng from Cameroon was interviewed about her studies in Erfurt, her experiences in Germany and her life in Cameroon. The article talks about how she missed the opportunity to get a scholarship at a German university, and how her studies at the Brandt School were made possible through private support. In the article, she also discusses the major differences between Germany and her homeland of Cameroon. Overall, Theresia is more than happy to be able to study here in Erfurt at the Brandt School, especially because she wants to offer her young daughter, whom she had to leave behind in Cameroon, a better future. Theresia has been in the capital of Thuringia since October 2014, and she is impressed by the many nationalities of the fellow students in her year. On behalf of the Brandt School, we wish her the best of luck with her MPP studies and hope she has a nice time in Erfurt and in Germany!
