Student Testimonials:

Sarah Zahaf, University of Rouen:

This experience at the Winter School has profoundly marked my study life, far beyond all my expectations. It not only enriched me intellectually but also allowed me to meet exceptional people from across the world, unforeseen encounters that I could never have had otherwise.

This week in Cork was not just an opportunity to make friends, it was also a significant personal springboard. The workshops opened my eyes to various aspects of entrepreneurship and also taught me to have more confidence in myself.

I’m deeply grateful to Ingenium for this experience. It wasn’t just about gaining entrepreneurial skills but also about personal growth and forming a global network of friends. Thank you for an impactful and unforgettable week! ☘️ »
