I only just realized, thanks to the Certificate International, how diverse RWTH is in the area of internationalization. Gaining such valuable insight into the work of the International Office and other areas of RWTH has helped me in my job, especially when dealing with international students here on campus. Above all, it gave me fresh impetus to tackle any challenges ahead.
