“My experience with the A.U.K. summer program 2010 is definitely a memorable one. I had the pleasure and opportunity to study the transformation process of former communist countries to democratic countries. Most important of all we had the possibility to make friends with people from different parts of the world and with amazing backgrounds. For me the program at A.U.K. was an academic and also a personal asset I wouldn't want to miss”. "
