STUDY ABROAD: Maja is a Swede who spent a semester studying in Ljubljana, 17.02.2020

If a student ever complains to you about an exam, you can tell them that at some universities in Sweden, they can take up to 6 hours!

But that's not all, the classrooms are supposedly equipped with technology that can detect if you are texting someone in order to prevent cheating! What she was most surprised by in Slovenia is the level of proficiency in the English language of the average Slovenian, as well as the fact that feminism is openly spoken about at her faculty.

STUDY ABROAD: Henrik - a German from Marburg who came to study in Maribor, 10.02.2020

Henrik came from Marburg, Germany to study in Maribor, Slovenia. But the coincidences don’t end there - he comes from the State of Hesse, which, area-wise, is about the same size as Slovenia. The state has a lake called Eder, and if we were to translate “Lake Bled” into German – Slovenia has the Bleder See, and Hesse has the Edersee. The fact that Henrik is studying geography probably comes as no surprise! His musical choice was a song called Gave You Everything by the American ska-punk band The Interrupters.

STUDY ABROAD: Julia

Did you know that the Ode to Joy lyrics were written by German poet, playwright, and historian Friedrich Schiller? Well, it wasn't until her Erasmus exchange that Juloa found out that the European anthem isn't sung in German all over Europe and that all nations have their own translations of the text. It's just one of those things that happens to all of us where we don't know we don't know something until we open ourselves up to new experiences and new people who leave us richer in the best way possible.
