Tamara Licht

Tamara Licht, a second year´s Psychology student, returned from an interchange program at the University of  Development in Santiago, Chile.

Licht studied and lived in the South American city from August to December 2005; although she was her freshman year when she was there, her experience and formation allowed her to take courses from the second year.

“My experience in that university has been a unique event and it has given me new tools for my professional and personal growth. These programs offered at the UFM promotes the growth of the entrepreneurial future of Guatemala”, she said.

“In those months I learned to make things that ordinarily I would never do, there is a lot to learn.  I had the opportunity to live with different people, under different rules; I learned to value the things that we have here, which we usually dont think they are relevant”, she explained.

“Since I had enough psychological knowledge, and had good basics at the Marroquín, they gave me equivalences that allowed me, eventhough I was in first year of Psychology, to take courses from the second year.  They would not had done that it if they had not considered that I was able to do it”, she concluded.

The UFM has interchange agreements and cooperation with different educative organizations in North America, South America and Europe.  Every year students from different faculties have similar opportunities to the one of Tamara Licht, or to the one of
, that recently was in Japan.
