Say hello to this spring's exchange bloggers

Are you interested to know what it's like to study abroad? Then you should check out the Study Abroad blog, where KI students share their lives as exchange students. New Zealand, London, and Spain are some of the places where the current KI students are spending this spring semester.

During previous semesters, we have been able to follow KI students who have been on exchanges in Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Norway, and the US. The current bloggers have also found exciting places to go on exchange.  Here is a short presentation of them and what they are looking forward to. Visit to follow their travels!

I am looking forward to the courses and meeting new people with different backgrounds, cultures, and ways of thinking! I also look forward to discovering different cities, cafés, and experiencing the Dutch culture.”

Denisa, Master's Programme in Bioentrepreneurship - Auckland, New Zealand

“My exchange is at the University of Auckland where I’ll be spending my last semester of school and carrying out my degree project with a company. I'm excited about the adventure of moving halfway across the world and all it encompasses - meeting new people, discovering New Zealand and Maori culture. I'm very fond of picturesque landscapes and outdoorsy lifestyle so New Zealand has been on my bucket list for a while. I also look forward to getting out of the KI bubble and expanding my horizons in a different academic environment.”
