Student of Bachelor's Program at Innopolis University (Spring 2019/2020)
It was a warm spring night with cherry blossom trees around, I and 20 more exchange students from all around the world met on the roof of the library to drink Korean soju and sing American songs.
The exchange semester at KAIST gave me an unusual experience of life in an Asian country. I and many other exchange students developed an amazing community in KAIST. United by common interests, we enjoyed travels, adventures, and parties together. I remember the brightest part of the exchange program. It was a warm spring night with cherry blossom trees around, I and 20 more exchange students from all around the world met on the roof of the library to drink Korean soju and sing American songs. COVID had its impact on the program but overall, everything else was great.
Do not go there only for knowledge, go for experience and new people!
Lectures at <b>Sapienza University (Italy)</b> were engaging and containing complicated topics in an easy-to-understand form.<br> <br> I would recommend students who wish to go on an exchange program to take part in all possible activities which partner university can provide, visit the county of exchange, and make friends.<br>
<p> Though my exchange at <b>Luxembourg University</b> was affected by COVID-19, I would still say it was amazing<br> </p>
I had a chance to dive into the history of the foreign country. During the exchange at <b>METU (Turkey)</b>, I lived with friends and one of them was Turkish. This guy showed the key places in Ankara and gave a short review of modern Turkish history. The brightest day of my exchange program was the day of Remembering Ataturk on 10th November at 9:05 AM when I met many people outside in a crowded street to see how the nation respects its father.
<p> I had a chance to study with Korean students at <b>Seoul National University (South Korea)</b> for a short term to see how hard they study in their university. </p>
I chose <b>METU</b> because of its reputation and high ranking in the area.
I chose <b>Seoul National University (South Korea)</b> mostly due to its high rankings and high quality of education that is recognized in Korea and worldwide.
<p> “I always wanted to go somewhere for an Exchange programme, but I was not sure where to go. Couple of weeks before the application deadline a new university was added - the university I have chosen as my first option - The ‘Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember’” - Adela Krylova </p> <p> </p> <p> “Until the very last moment, I was not sure if I would go for an exchange. Initially, I chose 2 universities where I would like to go for an exchange. After the deadline for the forms came and all documents were submitted, I realised that I did not like my choice of the second university, so I was only left with the first one - ‘Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember’ or ITS.” - Roman Makarov </p>
