Student Profiles


Karolien Michiels, 1st Secretary at the Embassy of Belgium in Berlin

(MSc Econ in Strategic Studies, International Politics)

"I came to Aberystwyth in 2011 for my MScEcon in Strategic Studies, after my professor in Belgium recommended the department. During my master’s year, I was offered PhD funding and stayed for three more years before joining the Belgian diplomatic service in 2015. Finishing my PhD while working as a diplomat (and mum to a newborn!) was tough, but the support of my supervisors and the department made all the difference. The best thing about Aberystwyth was definitely the scale of the town and the tight-knit academic community – and I would recommend joining the Debating Union!''
