Kaisar Dauyey, Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan
SUR Programme is a rare and outstanding chance for any student to discover a whole new world of research. Reading about science is interesting, but doing science with your own hands feels much better. Of course, the programme was intellectually intense and challenging. But during these two month I've met so many intellectual and creative people and made friends from all over the Earth. I enjoyed research, life in Switzerland and travelling in Europe. Forget your troubles, and apply ! You won't regret it!

Savita Rani, Queen's University, Canada
I wanted to thank you all for making possible this fantastic opportunity to experience scientific research in beautiful Switzerland. This has truly been an unforgettable summer thanks to all your hard work and the company of my fellow summer students. It was refreshing to be with like-minded peers from across the world and share both intellectual and travel experiences with them! I also greatly appreciated the chance to connect with esteemed professors in the fields of biology and medicine. Again, thank you so much for providing this unique opportunity, I wish all the best for all future SUR programmes. Also, If you are ever in Canada, please do let me know!

Beatrice Tyrrell, University of Cambridge, UK
I would like to thank the entire leadership team of the SUR Programme and my host laboratory for making this wonderful opportunity available to me as a young scientist. I have never had such a productive and memorable summer as the one that I have just spent in Switzerland. The Programme enabled me to learn fundamental skills that I will continue to use in my research career, to meet and work with leading scientists, and to grow in both ability and confidence. Our beautiful surroundings really did make for a ‘beautiful summer’, and memories made with the Programme participants will stay with me forever

Mirjana Gušić, University of Novi Sad, Serbia
