We take a peek into the lives of foreign students living in Slovenia. Did they come to party, study or just shake up their everyday lives? What makes these young people tick and what do they think about the country they've come to? Listen to the challenges they face and what they miss from home. Has this experience changed them?

STUDY ABROAD: Vasily

Vasily is a student of tourism, who came to our capital for a slightly different reason than most other foreign students - he decided to switch professions and move his family from Moscow to Ljubljana. He says he was especially surprised that primary school children in Ljubljana go to school on their own, pointing out that Moscow is a huge city, which also means it is far more dangerous. He believes that if parents in Slovenia can let their children walk to school on their own without worrying too much, that means that everything is as it should be. His musical choice was Rebel Heart by First Aid Kit.

Now, he has decided to spend his Erasmus exchange in Ljubljana! His musical choice was Mr. Beat, a song by the Czech band D.Y.K..

STUDY ABROAD: Fábio

When we think of Portuguese people, we have a certain phenotype in mind. However, Fábio says this is not the case with Slovenes. To him, Slovenes do not look as alike as the Portuguese. He says that Slovenians are quieter when compared to the more extroverted Portuguese, and added that during his exchange semester in Ljubljana, he has been learning new things not only about Slovenia but also about himself and has gained a different perspective on his country, culture and friends. His musical choice was a song called Blue Sunshine by Firgun.

STUDY ABROAD: Blas

Blas comes from Argentina and has Slovenian roots, but that's not what brought him to Koper. The doctorate student of Mathematics was most drawn to FAMNIT because of graphs theory. On the one hand, he noticed similarities between Slovenia and Argentina, such as gesticulation, and on the other, he said the size of countries is one of the more noticeable differences. If, in Slovenia, you decide to drive for two hours, you can end up on the other side of the country, while in Argentina, 2 hours mean nothing. He added that in Argentina, some people drive 2 hours just to go to work each day! His musical choice was the song Tren Del Cielo by Soledad and Natalia Pastorutti.

He says that things in Ljubljana and Slovenia in general are better organized than in Serbia but adds that Slovenians are also a bit colder and take a longer time to warm up and open up to other people. But that’s why he’s here! His music choice was SOS by Abba.

STUDY ABROAD: Matthew

Our newest guest is probably the only one in Koper who still goes swimming in the sea as late as November and starts again as early as March. If you haven’t guessed it, he comes from Alaska! Matthew spent several years working in a mine in Alaska before he decided to come to Koper to study bioinformatics. If you don't know what that is, then think evil scientist in the first Jurassic Park movie. At least that's what Matthew says. Oh, and minus the evil of course.

STUDY ABROAD: Marta

Slovenia was actually the first country our newest Study Abroad guest visited outside of the one she was born in. Marta is a doctoral student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Ljubljana. The young woman from Poland feels at home here, adding she sees no major differences between the two countries. Well, apart from the prices, which she says are almost 1x higher and the fact Poland still uses zloty as its currency and not euro. She says what she misses most in Slovenia is her family and friends, but adds it's not too bad, since she makes the more than 1000 km long trip back home every few weeks. Her music choice was the single Początek by a band called Męskie Granie Orkiestra 2018 (Kortez, Podsiadło, Zalewski).

STUDY ABROAD: Amar

Amar is a doctoral student of Mathematical Sciences at the Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies at the University of Primorska. He first started his master’s studies in Koper and then decided to stay in Slovenia for his doctoral studies. He says he would love to return to Bosnia and Herzegovina after he wraps up his studies, but notes that compared to his colleagues in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Slovenia, he has much more opportunities for student work and more independence from his parents as well as more freedom as a young researcher and academic, which is why he is considering staying in Slovenia or trying to find work elsewhere in Europe. His music choice was Soul to Squeeze by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

STUDY ABROAD: Polina

Our newest Study Abroad guest comes from Perm! The city, which has a population of over 1 million is located near the Ural Mountains in Russia. We'll let you decide whether the nightlife in Koper, where she's studying Mathematics, can compare to the party her home city can offer, but Polina did say it is also cheaper to go out in Russia than in Slovenia. On the other hand, some of her friends came to Slovenia to study because they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford to do so in Russia. Her music choice was Siren Song, a track by Ukrainian singer MARUV, which won the Ukrainian national final for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv.

Nevertheless, with the exception of Prague, which is more expensive, she says prices are still relatively comparable to those in Slovenia. Her music choice was Natural by Imagine Dragons.

Ramón comes from Tenerife, but came to Koper to study and is now in his third year. One of the first sentences he learned in Slovenian was »Pojdi stran nora soseda«.

STUDY ABROAD: Konstantin

Konstantin, who comes from the Republic of Northern Macedonia, chose to spend his Erasmus in Slovenia, since it was neither too close nor too far from home. Although Northern Macedonia is only slightly larger than Slovenia in terms of surface area and population, compared to Ljubljana, Skopje has almost double the people living there, which also means it is home to about a quarter of the country’s population and makes for a more exciting nightlife compared to Ljubljana. But apart from that, Konstantin says students in Slovenia don’t know how good they have it! For the musical break, he chose to play Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine.

STUDY ABROAD: Debashish

STUDY ABROAD: Łukasz

Łukasz is a Polish student of management in Koper. What he says surprised him there the most was the strong, cold bora winds. He decided to study in Koper because the University of Primorska offered studies in English, which was something that wasn’t possible in Poland and since Scandinavian and western European countries were too expensive. His music choice was Polish artist Brodka's cover of Nirvanas' song Heart-Shaped box.

STUDY ABROAD: Anita

Anita did grow up in the Netherlands, but her Macedonian roots also led her to Slovenia. She says many people are not aware of how densely populated the Netherlands is. More than 17 million people live in this northwestern European monarchy, which is only slightly more than once larger than Slovenia. This means that it is more than 4 times more densely populated than Slovenia. Her music choice was the song Kilometri by North Macedonian artist Vlatko Lozanoski.

STUDY ABROAD: Francesco

If you want to study in Italy, prepare to memorize a lot of information. At least that's what our newest Study Abroad guest, Francesco claims.

STUDY ABROAD: Carolina

Sunday lunch at noon is a staple in Slovenia, but it's not quite like that in Spain. Carolina says that it really surprised her when she came to the cafeteria at her faculty around 11:30AM and saw people eating pasta. She says that at that hour, she would maybe have a second breakfast, but never lunch. For her music choice, she decided on Bad Guy by Billie Eilish.
