Diana Avadanii, University of Oxford (a geology student)
I had an amazing time in Russia as everyone was welcoming and very helpful.
The academic experience was a good one for me and I enjoyed every part of it. The field trip in Siberia was helpful to get an insight into the mining industry and it had a new approach. Also, the lab work was new as well, in the sense that I have never worked with an Electronic Scanning Microscope before or with gold. Overall, as a first year I found the academic part of the internship exciting and helpful for my career.
