Hermann’s Western Sydney University

Hermann is in the final year of his degree at the University of Applied Sciences in Ulm, Germany. He is studying International Energy Economics, and spent a semester at Western Sydney University, in Australia, studying business.

Getting the show on the road (and abroad)

At Western Sydney University, Australia, I studied at the Parramatta Campus where I took mostly business classes: modules such as ‘Creating Change and Innovation’, ‘Business, Society and Policy’ and ‘Psychology: Human Behaviour’. Although those units are not necessarily related to my field of study back home in Germany, where I’m an engineering student, I just wanted to try out something new so I thought about technology and business as some interesting subjects.

When I was doing my research on studying abroad, I came across Western Sydney University which I liked the look of and which offered some good scholarships as well. I was using an organisation called GOstralia that helps students to travel to Australia and New Zealand to study, as I was keen to do a semester overseas. I didn’t want to stay in Europe. And having decided on Australia, the city became important and I knew I wanted to be either in Melbourne or Sydney. To read more about Hermann’s adventures in Australia, click here.
