ANTHONY (Philippines)


NAME: Jude Anthony Ong Billones
COUNTRY: Philippines
PROGRAMME: Master’s in Excellence in Analytical Chemistry

Why did you choose to study this programme?

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering, and have worked in the Process Control and Automation industry for more than 2 years. I chose the Excellence in Analytical Chemistry (EACH) programme among all the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree (EMJMD) programmes because it would fortify my knowledge in chemistry, which is the foundation of chemical engineering, and would also allow me to specialise in the Industrial Analysis and Process Control.

Why Estonia?

When applying for an EMJMD programme, you don’t have the control as to which country in Europe you are going to study because each programme’s participating universities were selected by the European Commission. But when I found out that I will be spending my first year in Estonia, I was really interested into knowing more about the culture and the cuisine. On top of that, I would really want to see the beauty of Estonia with my own eyes!
