Study abroad

We’ve found role models abroad. Go find yours!

Erasmus allowed me to fulfil my French dream…

Thanks to our school, I got the opportunity to travel to a country whose lifestyle I’ve been dying to explore. I spent a semester in France, in the historically rich, incredibly beautiful city of Lyon.

The fact that Erasmus gives you a lot of experience, connections and improvement in the language we’ve known for a long time. And it’s also absolutely true.

During my “French era” I managed to penetrate the depths of the local culture and history, meeting many people from different parts of the world and comparing the countries and thinking styles, share my experiences and of course unforgettable moments. The more I learned about other cultures, the more my view of the world and its workings expanded.

At times it was not easy, however, only the obstacles and difficult decisions can take us to another level, both personally and professionally. To make the leap from your comfort zone and to go against the grain, to experience the workings of life from different perspectives was the best decision I ever made. So I found very solid global friendships and most importantly, I made friends with myself. I learned to speak French from scratch, which expanded my list of languages. And I even realised what direction I wanted to take in the future, which I’d like to wish for each and every one of you.

My US journey through an international exchange program

Studying abroad proved to be a great experience, I discovered different cultures and pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone. When contemplating the Erasmus exchange, I had the choice between Taiwan and the US. Since I have never been to the US before, I decided to go for an American experience, and the fact that English was the official language played an important role  in my decision.

The International coordinator from the US university played a crucial role in making my entire application process smooth, providing valuable support. The campus had dormitories so finding accommodation was an easy process. Living with other flatmates there helped me to meet new people and make friendships.

Regarding the academic aspect, disparities existed between the US college and NEWTON. The university size, grading system, and a higher frequency of assignments were notable distinctions, The overall difficulty was relatively similar.

My daily routine was pretty simple — moving between my dorm, school„ and the library for exam preparation and homework. Additionally, I took advantage of the evening social program whenever I needed to unwind and have fun.

Reflecting on my experience, my TOP 3 reasons to recommend the exchange programme:

  • it offers a great personal experience in general — you find different perspectives
  • it provides a opportunity to navigate a different study system 
  • it is a great way of stepping out of your comfort zone
  • Any my message to those who are considering the exchange programme?

“Don’t be afraid of the language barrier. People are genuinely nice; just ask if you need assistance!”
