The years that I spent in the Mundus Urbano programme were enriching and added value to my skills and knowledge. On completion of the programme I returned back to Sri Lanka to be employed by ZOA International, an INGO focusing on the resettlement of refugees and displaced persons, at the capacity of Monitoring and Evaluation officer.
I came across the Mundus Urbano programme while I was searching for an advanced master programme which bridges Urban Development and Economics. The Mundus Urbano programme had both. Exposure to international experience in terms of the student body and curriculum is the central attraction of the programme. The programme brought in highly qualified international practitioners creating a memorable learning experience. The small, but lively and easily accessible city of Darmstadt had made life much enjoyable. The city is well connected to cultural and historical hubs in the region and the well known city Frankfurt is just 20 minutes away from Darmstadt. I would highly recommend the Mundus Urbano programme for students searching for an unforgettable international experience.
