Would you consider Slovenia exotic? Karin choose Slovenia for her Erasmus exchange since it was located the furthest from Estonia, so she thought it might be the most exotic. She says her Slovenian friends often get a laugh out of the fact that at 318m above sea level, Suur Munamägi (or Big Egg Mountain) is the highest peak in Estonia. But, on the other hand, her home country also has 2,355 islands - a number Slovenia can’t hope to compete with. Her music choice was Shadowplay, a song from an Estonian indie rock band called The Boondocks.

Meet Berra! After finishing her electrical engineering studies in Turkey, she came to Ljubljana for a couple of months to do some practical work at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. She says Ljubljana has the same vibe as her home university town Eskisehir. This in part contributed to her not experiencing any form of culture shock in Slovenia. The things she misses most here are her family and Turkish food. Her music choice was a song titled Öp (kiss) by the Turkish singer-songwriter Tarkan.

Sara says her studies and lifestyle in Slovenia don't differ all that much from Spain, but notes accomodation in Ljubljana is cheaper. Despite also saying the Spanish and Slovenian language are completely different, Sara has picked up a few basic words, which is commendable! But then again she also speaks Basque, which is not only unrelated to the other languages of Europe, but also a language isolate to any other known living language. Her music choice was a song titled Oblit from a Spanish band called Urfabrique.

Our newest Study Abroad guest, Dražen has actually been living in Slovenia for quite some time. The initial decision to move to Koper was not his own - his parents, who now live in Bosnia and Herzegovina, came to Slovenia, where he first enrolled to a secondary school, and then decided to study here as well. Dražen says the most difficult thing to get used to in Slovenia was the language, noting that from a linguistic point, it's harder to learn a language that is somewhat similar to your mother tongue, than the one you try to learn "from scratch". When someone asks him about music from his Erasmus Dražen says he thinks of “Willst du” by Alligatoah. This was also his music choice.

His music choice was the evergreen Come And Get Your Love by Redbone.

Meet Juan Carlos. He studies telecommunication engineering in Valparaiso, which has 4 “main” Universities. What’s more, they aren’t just separated into public and private.

STUDY ABROAD: Jose Ecuador

This week’s Study Abroad guest says Slovenia is very different from Ecuador. Jose says everything in Koper is relatively close by and life in general is much quieter. Since he decided he wanted to be a pilot when he was only 17 years-old, his studies don’t exactly follow the "classic" Bachelor's and Master's studies system. Jose is currently doing a theoretical course about aviation at the Aviation Career Center in Maribor, but since most of his lectures are available online, he decided to stay in Koper.

Love makes the world go ‘round. Our newest Study Abroad guest quite literally made a trip ‘round the globe from Indonesia to Slovenia for love. And then decided to do her Masters studies in Ljubljana. With more than 200 million people, Indonesia is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. In its capital, Jakarta, there over 170 shopping malls and only a few parks. And lots of traffic. Annisa says Ljubljana is different. There is not nearly as much night-life, but a lot more nature.

Summer is winding down, but the new season of Study Abroad is kicking off! Meet Judit. The CEEPUS student of Anthropology hadn’t initially planned on studying in Koper. She had a semester left at the end of her studies at the University of Vienna and ended up almost applying to Ljubljana at first, but changed all her paperwork during the last week and applied to Koper. The avid mountain climber says she doesn’t regret it one bit. For her music choice, she picked the song Boys of Summer by Don Henley, which she thinks is the perfect song for the end of the summer. She also says it summarizes her experience in Koper. Judit had tried to play the song on a Hungarian radio for her grandparents when she was 10 years old. A couple of years later, and on a Slovenian radio, she got her wish. More in the latest edition of Study Abroad.

Meet Robert. The Erasmus student of Tourism management and Sport from Croatia decided to come to Brežice since he heard good things about the Faculty there and likes the fact it puts more emphasis on practical work and tourism than his home faculty. He does however note the city can get a bit boring, since it’s not really a student city and that due to a lack of nightlife in Brežice, students travel to Ljubljana, Maribor and Zagreb to party. He says a lot of people asked him why Slovenia, why Brežice, why not something more exotic. He responded by saying it’s still something, it’s a start, noting that the majority of people who asked him this were the ones who wouldn’t take such a leap themselves. His music choice was Turn! Turn! Turn! by The Byrds

Jasmine decided to come to Slovenia after seeing a poster with a location in Slovenia pictured on it. She hadn’t previously really heard anything about it, her decision was purely due to aesthetics, but she says it worked out in the end. The student of philosophy and sociology says she prefers the nightlife in Ljubljana, which she describes as more relaxed. Jeans are an acceptable clothing choice and heels are not obligatory, but the nights are a lot later. In her home University, the clubs close at 2 AM. As a result, she says she was falling asleep in the clubs in Ljubljana at 3 AM. But she says she didn’t need to long to get used to it. Her music choice was Green Light by Lorde.

Ljubljana wasn’t the first choice for Piotr’s Erasmus experience, but now the law student from Poland says he’s happy he ended up where he did. But not all of his friends knew where that was. When he invited one of them to visit him, he asked if Ljubljana was in Lithuania. Apart from family and friends, he says that he misses clubs. He says that back in Poland, there is a much greater diversity and more options when it comes to clubs. Piotr notes he also used his Erasmus experience not just for partying but also visited conferences in Croatia and Montenegro and travel around Europe. His music choice was Young Folks by Peter Bjorn And John.

Meet Daniel. The Fulbright student researcher from California, US came to Ljubljana to learn more about Ethnomusicology and the tamburica. Daniel says one thing he doesn’t like so much about the school system here is that the majority of Slovene students are very quiet during the lectures. He says this was a major education shock, adding that if your viewpoints are challenged, you have the opportunity to question, test and possibly change or improve them. Daniel believes this to be much more important than just copying down information and trying to memorize it for a test. His music choice was a version of Namesto koga roža cveti performed by the tamburica orchestra of KD Ivan Kaučič Ljutomer.

Čevapi are served with lepinja bread. Everybody knows that, right? Well, this week’s Study Abroad guest Arman says the worst combo he’s seen in Slovenia so far was čevapi served with a baguette. Despite this, he says there’s not much he’d change about his CMEPIUS experience in Maribor. He does note it is easier to study here, and easier to get better grades compared to his home University in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but at the same time, the student of literature and philosophy says he learns more here. Listen in to find out why! His music choice was Everglow by Coldplay.

Two years ago, Amélie shared a car with a Slovenian while traveling through Austria. After he told and showed her a bit about Slovenia on his mobile phone, she was convinced she had to visit it. Now she’s studying English and German at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana. She says one of the challenges Erasmus students face is deciding on how to greet each other. Some are used to hugging, kissing, others shake hands, etc. The French, for example, share a couple of kisses on the cheek. The same goes for Italians. But the thing is, Italians start with a different cheek. Amélie says this can lead to somewhat awkward situations. Her music choice was a song titled Seeds of Gold by the french band AaRON.
