MAS Newsletter 1/2014

This edition surveys some of the highlights of the new academic year 2013/2014 at the HCA.

In October, the HCA welcomed the MAS class of 2015. Two students share their experiences with the buddy program, established by Heidelberg University to help international students getting settled in Heidelberg. One of the new MAS students as well as our visiting professor, Dr. Mark Wilson, tell us about their first weeks in Germany and at the HCA. A former MAS student shares how the MAS has influenced his future academic and professional career.

Furthermore, the MAS team reports on their experiences at education fairs in Chile. Additionally, we take a look back at the festivities during the fall semester.
