Alumni Success Stories 

How our graduates are fulfilling their dreams 



Nicola M.

Nicola M., BISB Graduate 2015

After calling BISB her home for 13 years, Nicola moved to London to study Computer Science, IT and Business Management at University College London (UCL). In 2019 she completed her MSc in Computer Graphics, Vision and Imaging. Captivated by the evolving fields of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, she focused her research on studying the effects of Robotic Teleoperation through the use of Virtual Environments.

Her strong interest in Astronomy and Space exploration has led her to start her professional experience with the European Space Agency (ESA), where she works as a Young Graduate Trainee for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Project Development. Nicola is currently overlooking the development of a VR experience on the Moon, aiming to illustrate and promote ESA’s future long-term Lunar settlement. She has been selected to present her research and findings at the International Astronautical Congress 2021 in Dubai. Nicola is still trying to pursue her dream of becoming an astronaut.

Jieun L.

Ji Eun L., BISB Graduate 2014

After Ji Eun's graduation from BISB, she went to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) to study Engineering. She spent one semester in HKUST, and then got an admission from Yonsei University, which made her go back to Korea. 

After she returned to Korea, she studied Mechanical Engineering at Yonsei University. During her years at the university, she took part in several on-campus clubs including Robot club and Association of Women Engineers. She worked as a mechanical designer at the Robot club, and was able to find out her interest in mechanical design using 3D programme. This experience played a very important  role in her career choice later. Also, she participated in several internal Creative Design Projects in her university, and internship programmes. 

After graduating from university, Ji Eun joined LG Display as a mechanical engineer. LG Display is the world-best company which is engaged in the business of producing and selling display-related products using technologies such as TFT-LCD and OLED. Among them, she is working in the monitor division, and contributing to the development of monitor display. She takes charge in mechanical design using 3D programmes, several simulation tools, and various experiments. As a result of her excellent work as an engineer, she was promoted to the Senior Researcher this year. 

Klara Hatinova

Klara H., BISB Graduate 2018

After BISB, Klara ended up going to the University of Glasgow to study Neuroscience. In Glasgow, she chosed the accelerated path that skipped all of the 1st year. This material had largely been covered in IB, so with that BISB helped her better understand the university material. 

During her 1st year, Klara applied to the Study Abroad scheme. She was selected to participate in the exchange program offered by the University of California and placed in the Los Angeles (UCLA) campus. This was the best experience of her life. The campus was beautiful, the extra-curricular activities very broad and all students were encouraged to participate in world-class research laboratories. With the Track and Field club, they hosted the 1st ever UCLA all-commers meet and she joined Dr. Reggie Edgerton’s lab as a research assistant to a clinical trial studying therapy for spinal cord injury. 

In her final year, Klara wrote her dissertation about sex differences in pain and will present her project to the whole university of Glasgow at the Let’s Talk About [X] conference. Thanks to Ms. Eastwood and her recommendation as well as my supervisor and Dr. Edgerton, Klara was accepted to Oxford to join their first class psychiatry research program, hopefully, followed by a PhD at Oxford. 

"I think the main thing BISB gave me was security and support throughout my early life. Only after coming to university and having to do everything by yourself did I realise the amount of background work that went into our studies. Especially the final year application process that I had to do by myself for Master's level study. Throughout my university, I look back on our Psychology and Biology lessons in IB and they provide warm memories and a stable foundation of knowledge."

Jae H.

Jae H., BISB Graduate 2013

After graduating from BISB in 2013, Jae Hyung moved to Hong Kong to study Electronic and Computer Engineering at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). As he always had a passion for the electronic systems of aircraft he also applied for and completed a minor in Aerospace Engineering. 

Throughout his years at university, Jae H. participated in various engineering competitions, including the Microsoft AI Competition and the Kerry Logistics AI Drone Hackathon where his team went up to the top 3 teams of Ph.D. students and software engineers. In his junior year, he completed his obligatory military service in Korea and flew to München for an exchange program at Technische Universität München (TUM) where he had a chance to enjoy the wonderful Bayern culture and German beers. 

 After graduating from university, Jae Hyung came back to Korea and started working at Bigdata marketing company "HumusOn" as Back-end/Server developer and being part of the AI marketing automation system team. At the same time, he formed a startup company, "CuriousOnes", with his university colleagues and became CTO of the company. They recently launched an app service called "Mootda". It's a service to create a borderless insight network between people working in a specific professional field. Working as a software engineer as well as practicing the role of CTO is not an easy job, but he will continue what he must do to become a professional software developer. 

 "My IB programme experience in BISB was very helpful, especially for thinking from many different perspectives. It may put you through a lot of challenges, but those will be a life lesson. Thanks to all my teachers and BISB" 

Borys S.

Borys S., BISB Graduate 2016

Borys started his journey at BISB in 2004. Upon finishing his IGCSEs in 2016, his family moved out of Slovakia with Borys finishing high school in Saint Andrew's School, Florida.

After his gap year, he started his Bachelor's in Marketing at a top business school in Boston, Massachusetts. However, after just one semester, Borys took another risk and returned to Europe to pursue graphic design. He started a new Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design at Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam, as the studies aligned better with his ongoing career.

Such passion in science and math encouraged her to study science in college. 

To join KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology),  Eunkyoung went back to the Republic of Korea in 2013 and studied Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). As an undergraduate student, she joined Engineers Without Borders at KAIST (EWB-KAIST) and visited Nepal in 2016 as a volunteer to empower the Nepali community to meet their basic human needs through several engineering projects. 

Such experiences inspired her to become a person who could create social value through engineering and decided to deep dive into the semiconductor technology which contributes to a better human life. 

She also had an opportunity to study abroad for one semester at the Technical University of Munich on an exchange program which helped her to broaden her perspective as an engineer. As soon as she completed a master's degree at Nano Packaging and Interconnect Laboratory at KAIST in 2020, she started working at the Semiconductor R&D Center in Samsung Electronics. 

"My colleagues and I strive every day to develop an optimal process to fabricate a nano-scale semiconductor chip. some could say I finally achieved my dream to become a semiconductor expert, but my efforts to create social value for a better human life is ongoing."

“Doctor Pavel Traubner is a renowned Slovak neurologist. His life story reminds us what is the essence of a real true physician.”

Portrait of the famous Slovak neurologist Pavel Traubner shows not only an exceptional neurologist who has helped thousands of his patients in a fundamental way, but also a person who believes deeply in the principles of humanism, tolerance. He's been always ready to show helping hand to anybody. But Mr. Traubner is also not indifferent to the negative things that happen in society and he is willing to fight against xenophobic and racist torrents. He has never forgotten that his own life as a child was endangered by the Nazis and was saved thanks to the kindness and bravery of people. This has turned out to be an important lesson for his life.
