The city in the sky: studying abroad 9.272 kilometers from home!

Germany? Norway? Spain? United States? South Africa? South Korea? Hong Kong? I considered all of these 7 destinations. My previous university, Utrecht University, offered more than 500+ destinations. While it is nice to have so many options, it was incredibly hard to choose between all those options, because what should you really look for?

Studying “Abroad”? About Being a German Psychology Student in Vienna

It’s become a cliché: if your Numerus Clausus (your grade from the last years of High School) doesn’t fit, you simply cannot get into a German university to study psychology. So, what are your options? Well, either you find something else or you’ll have to go somewhere else. And many of us who prefer the latter option choose Austria.  I mean, how could we not? There is this small country right next to ours, in which they speak the same…

Studying Abroad – Keti’s Adventure in Slovakia

Studying Abroad – Keti’s Adventure in Slovakia

Hello! Tell us something about yourself.  My name is Keti and I am from Albania. Two years ago I decided to study abroad and I made a very unusual choice (at least my family thought so). I decided to study psychology in Slovakia. The bachelor’s program here for psychology is only offered in Slovak, so I prepared myself to undergo a full year of learning the tricky Slovak language. My university of choice was Comenius University, the oldest and best…
