A full year in Japan for 3 M2 students

A full year in Japan for 3 M2 students

Thanks to the people involved in the master “Biologie AgroSciences”of the University of Bordeaux, we had the opportunity, after completing our 1st year of master and going through a few interviews, to be part of an exchange program with the University of Tsukuba in Japan in order to obtain an international double degree “Biology, AgroSciences and World Food Security”. While being a first-class institution for scientific studies, this university is located in a city where science holds an important place and that has a direct and fast train line to Tokyo, ideal for weekends trips.
Here, we have classes we need to attend but we are also affiliated to a laboratory where we each work on a subject related to what we would like to work on in the future (as for us, biotechnology, plant pathology and mycology). We have to, each day, work with international teams and people from around the world, thus learning how to adapt to different cultures and allowing us to build a thorough professional network. We are almost totally autonomous in the lab by experimenting on our own, analyzing the results and doing all the related communication activities, preparing us for our future professional life. Nonetheless, we can count on our supervisors to help or advise us in all of our scientific or administrative questionings. This exchange program is an outstanding occasion to develop our knowledge in our chosen field and to enjoy a complete and thorough formation that will be an assessment of our future.
Moreover, day after day we discover Japan and its marvels through our visits and trips. The sceneries, parks, temples, castles, museums, festivals and even the small things in the daily Japanese life, that has truly nothing in common with the life in France, give to this exchange cultural resources and knowledge that deeply fulfilled us. Far from our routine, we learn to live in a different but fascinating society with its rites and customs, an important asset knowing that scientific activities lead to the collaboration of international teams and that Asia is a region where science is very developed.
This opportunity to go live far from our life in France in such conditions allowed us three to grow, personally and scientifically, while preparing for the best we can our future in vegetal sciences. Thus, thank you to the team of the Master for giving us such an opportunity.
And as we are used to saying, if we had to do it again, we would do it without a doubt!
 
Best wishes from the Land of the Rising Sun,
 
Claudia Rouveyrol, Salomé Mesnier, and Guillaume Decros

Five students: ready to conquer Japan

Five students: ready to conquer Japan

We are five students enrolled at the University of Bordeaux. However, our educational backgrounds are very different: we are absolutely complementary. To enforce this bond and to strengthen our relationship with Japanese and Taiwanese students, we created an association: BAMJID.
This master is an opportunity to prepare for working in an international laboratory. The philosophy underlying this training ("food is medicine") suggests that we will be given a holistic view of public health and agronomic issues. This seems essential, in the light of the challenges encountered in these areas.
The pedagogy of the Master’s Degree seems truly innovative. It pushes us to invest in projects, to remain active in the construction of our professional career.
Beyond this appealing degree, the country where it takes place is a dream-like destination for many French people. Japan has an extraordinary cultural wealth: this is a great way to open our minds to new ideas.
We all share a desire to discover what a student’s life looks like across the world. Not anyone can collaborate with people from around the world so early in life. It’s a magnificent opportunity that has only come to us thanks to our professors. We offer our heartfelt thanks for all the time they spent in this project!

Thomas: ready to conquer Chile

Thomas: ready to conquer Chile

 Thomas Dussarrat
Former master student at Bordeaux University 2016/2017.

My name is Thomas Dussarrat, I’m 22 years old. I got my Bachelors in Biology (Molecular and Cell Biology and Physiology) from Bordeaux University and I joined the 2BAS Master this year. During my university training, I had the opportunity to do three internships: Green Campus in Villenave d’Ornon, Maisadour Semences in Haut-Mauco and LIPM in Toulouse. I chose this biology program for the main purpose of learning and filling my curiosity. But three years later, thanks to Bordeaux University, its professors and my internships, I’m glad to see that this curiosity has increased tenfold. That is why I am now convinced of my path and excited to pursue my learning in Chile.  
The 2BAS Master showed us that diversity and exchange of knowledge are the two main drivers of research and this is what I’m looking for in the PUC program. In fact, I believe strongly that this training will bring me a personal enrichment, which will form the background to my professional evolution. Also, this is an opportunity to obtain a double degree (Santiago-Bordeaux) that can be very interesting even if I’m convinced that, as Albert Schweitzer said, «Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful ».
Who can say no to a pass for a professional and cultural experience in a sumptuous country?
Thomas.
