Thanks to the Cologne Summer School program for the first time I felt that I am part of an intercultural activity. There were people from China, Iran, US, Canada and many more with whom I had the chance to exchange knowledge in different fields.

Oscar, from Spain, studies medicine and attended the 'Cologne Summer School in Personalized Medicine'.
