Student 3: Feeling like an active researcher, I'm not kind of just being this sort of passive learner that regurgitates what other people are doing.

Student 1: To learn some new stuff and get really into the experiment side of things, even from abroad.
Student 7: The summer school's great fun. I've really enjoyed that.
Student 6: I like the variety of subjects I've had so far and I can really branch out and do anything that I want to do.
