Favourite subjects

English and Psychology

Goals

My greatest goal at the moment is finding new friends at my future university and adjusting to the Scottish accent. In Aberdeen, I would like to continue in most of the activities I did back at home in the Czech Republic, such as floor-ball and playing guitar. As for longer-term goals, I’m aiming at Master of Arts from the University of Aberdeen.

Interests and hobbies

Playing musical instruments, various sports, travelling to Banát [an old Czech village in Romania]

Student resume

I come from the town of Chomutov (in the north-western part of the Czech Republic) where I attended elementary school. In the 7th grade I transferred to the Open Gate eight-year grammar school in Babice and graduated there by passing the Czech school leaving examination and the International Baccalaureate. I enjoy almost all sports with the exception of swimming, because I don’t know how to float. But my favorite sports are those where you hold something in your hands, such as an ice-hockey stick or a racket. I also enjoy playing the guitar or piano and singing. It is the broad range of my interests that has been instrumental in my decision to take psychology, as I believe that everyone can find something of their interest in this discipline. On the other hand, the subject gives students the freedom to focus on multiple things simultaneously, which I like.
