The third year is generally speaking the most suitable year to go abroad. You could, for example, follow your minor abroad during the first semester of your third year. An internship abroad is in general a better option if you would like to go abroad during your master.
We have created a step-by-step plan describing the six most important steps towards a successful experience abroad.
What exchange students say about their semester abroad:
|Student about Geneseo, New York: ‘The people in Geneseo are so friendly and helpful, the countryside is beautiful, and there are a lot of opportunities to travel. Don’t be afraid to speak another language all the time. You get used to it so quickly that you don’t even think about it anymore after a while. My biggest advice is to enjoy yourself and be open to meet new people and have a wonderful time! ’|
|Student about Bratislava, Slovakia: 'After meeting more with locals, I began to notice how the past of Slovakia still affects its present structures and its current development. In the end that really was the experience which broadened my horizon.'|
|Student about Puebla, Mexico: 'Since the Mexican culture is very outgoing and welcoming both teachers and students received me very well. The students were very curious about the exchange students and immediately started talking to us. They were very patient with our Spanish and helped a lot to learn to speak the language properly.'|
