WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO GO ON EXCHANGE?
I wanted a unique experience that improved my language skills, made me more independent and opened my mind to a new culture and a new way of working.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT JÖNKÖPING UNIVERSITY?
It has to be the international environment and the student life – there are lots of student associations and activities to do, which makes it easy to meet new people. Also, the facilities here are amazing: the library, the student restaurants, the computer labs. Everything is open 24/7. JU has done a great job with their computer system here, you can log on and work anywhere on campus.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY?
Meeting new people through all the student activities I did, for example the elk safari and the fun student nights in RIO (the Student Union’s bar).
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND EXCHANGE STUDIES TO OTHER STUDENTS?
Yes, I would, and I would especially recommend JU as I felt more comfortable with the learning system there and their grading system was also more practical than the one in Spain. Furthermore, JU has a career centre that can help with your CV and prepare you for job interviews. It’s a good idea to come here for your final year of studies, so that you can get ready for setting out on your future career!
