Anna - Social and Organization Pedagogy  - Denmark

 

I found the working mentality in Denmark to be very positive. A lot of attention is paid to finding a good balance between work life and private life. Overtime is rather unusual and a good working atmosphere is very important. The hierarchical structures within our team are quite inconspicuous, since everyone has the opportunity to contribute ideas and feedback.Click here to read the interview.

Lisanne - International Information Management - Saint Mary’s University - Canada

 

A semester or internship abroad is mandatory for the IIM degree. Since I wanted to get to know university life in another country, I quickly decided that I would like to spend a semester at a university abroad. I also wanted to use the opportunity to improve my English skills because I haven't had any long-term experience abroad yet.Click here to read the interview.

Luca - International Information Management - Norwegian University of Science and Technology - Norway

How happy you can be in a hut where you have almost nothing and every comfort like a warm fireplace or sauna has to be worked out by chopping wood. Our adventure with a long search for drinking water also taught me how unimportant is most of what we normally worry about. The view from the mountains, the glistening sun on the fjord on my first day, the first snow, the sunsets. Let's be honest - I won't forget any of this! Click here to read the interview.

In my semester abroad, my Spanish skills definitely improved. It is still not perfect, but I have gotten better. I have developed a better feeling for the language and I am more confident to speak. Click here to read the interview.

Ronja - International Information Management - University Cheongju - South Korea

 

I did a lot in my free time. I have been traveling around for the past month visiting many cities with friends in South Korea. We also spent a lot of time sitting quietly in cafes. Our favorite café in Tanju was on the side of the street, where we often studied. You could look out the window onto the street and watch people go by. It was really nice.Click here to read the interview.

Ute Hanika - Psychology - University Pécs - Ungarn

 

In my opinion, living abroad is a great enrichment; I have gained many new experiences and got to know different cultures and their people. As a result, I have become more open-minded and more independent.Click here to read the interview.

Sandra Narten - Teacher Education - University of Uppsala - Sweden

 

"As an exchange student, you are assigned a coordinator. I find it very helpful having a contact person, especially when studying online. For example, I was worried that I would not be able to manage the work load, so I discussed my concerns with my coordinator online. She was very helpful and told me not to worry and that they already had gotten organized. She also knew exactly which courses I was on and knew all my lecturers. I felt very much in good hands here."Click here to read the interview.
