My study abroad story


They’ve always been there for me, for all my unnecessary queries and comments and I’m truly thankful for that (special thanks to my advisor team who had to change my course like millions of times – yes, at UofG you can slightly change the course you’re studying throughout the year, which is a great advantage for those indecisive people like me).

Professors should educate you, help you and motivate you. They should never look down on you or make you hate the subject. Unfortunately, from my own experience, that’s not the way it works at most educational places. The difference, which I have observed, is the relationship between professors and students. Even though they do respect each other, the relationship is more like between friends. Thanks to that, I found talking to professors more accessible and relaxed. That’s the way it should be. So, standing ovation for UofG!

Uhm….this post is getting longer than I expected.

To conclude, I’d recommend everyone to go and study abroad. Studying abroad itself is a very pleasant phase of one’s life. Nevertheless, it’s not only about that. As I have already mentioned, you’ll have to leave your home, family, friends, comfort zone, move and probably get a job, where you’ll spend even more time than at uni (if you’re not one of those rich kids).

A good piece of advice for anyone who’s thinking about going abroad is… just go! Whether it’s being a foreign student or just going on Erasmus, do it. It’s an unforgettable experience that no books or lectures will ever give you. Before you go though, you should definitely ask yourself, are you ready?
