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.



Yanxi or Daisy is a student of art history from China that came to Slovenia hoping to be able to travel and see firsthand the western artwork she only saw in books. She says people have some difficulties remembering her Chinese name, so she chose an English one, Daisy. It’s not unusual for Chinese people to choose an English name, since pronunciation can be quite tricky. Her music choice was Love With Your Life by Hollyn



What’s your hangover cure? Cem says that soup is one remedy that definitely works. It’s also one of the things he misses most from Turkey. The Erasmus student of English language also says he likes the fact that his professors in Maribor are punctual. Cem says that in Turkey, it’s not unheard of for a professor to be 5, 10 minutes, or even half an hour late to a lecture. His music choice was by Turn the Page by Metallica.



Meet Josef. The Erasmus student of history and social sciences comes from the University of Hradec Králové in the Czech Republic. He says he chose to spend his Erasmus in Slovenia since he wanted to understand how similar or different Slovenia is when compared to the Czech Republic. Did he find more similarities or differences? Listen to find out.



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.



Tom studies political sciences and international relations in the Netherlands. Despite Prague being his first choice for an Erasmus experience, he says he doesn’t regret ending up in Ljubljana. He says there’s not much about the Netherlands that he misses. Well, apart from some people and maybe a better bus system. And a Dutch snack called bitterballen. He chose to play Arabella from the Arctic Monkeys.



Maria is an Italian student of Japanese language and Asian studies. She came to Ljubljana for two semesters, but now she’s considering staying. She says a lot of things are cheaper in Slovenia, including eating at a restaurant. Maria believes this is because Italians, including students, prefer to prepare their own food. Even if there is a party, Italian houses usually have a special room for such occasions. Listen in to find out what it’s called. Maria's music choice was »I put a spell on you« by Nina Simone.


STUDY ABROAD: Miriam and Katarína

This week’s Study Abroad episode features not one but two besties from Slovakia, who came to Ljubljana, Slovenia for their Erasmus. The names of the countries are similar, but Miriam and Katarína say the Easter traditions are not. What do they mean by that? Listen to find out! Their music choice was Hej Sokoly! by I.M.T. Smile.



Dimitra is a French student of Law. When she first visited Ljubljana 7 years ago with her parents, she felt an instant connection to the city and knew then that she would come back. And she did. She's spending the whole year in Ljubljana as an Erasmus student. She says she likes how safe and clean Ljubljana is. One of her favorite memories is seeing the Trnovo Church again after so many years. It had, of course, stayed the same. She, on the other hand had changed. Her music choice was Housse de Racket – Aquarium.



Meet Christian. The Erasmus student from Catalonia chose to study in Slovenia as he found it to be the most unusual choice on his list. A tipping point for the travel enthusiast was also the fact that it was a green country that has good connections for exploring Europe. In addition to his Erasmus studies, the student of audio-visual media communications is also doing an internship at a Catalan television station, for which he records interviews and produces news-pieces on culture and art related events in Maribor. His music choice was Creep by Radiohead, one of the first songs his first band learned to play together.



Verica is a second-year law student from Macedonia. The 20 year-old says the month she spent in Ljubljana flew by as if it were a weekend. One of her favorite memories so far was snowboarding in Cerkno. That is, until she fell and broke her wrist. Her music choice was New York, New York, by Frank Sinatra.



Sina is a student of culture studies, who chose Slovenia because of its mountains. Back in Germany, she studies in Leipzig. She says housing there is cheaper than in Ljubljana, but that other costs are a bit lower. When applying for her Erasmus studies, she says she was surprised by the numerous forms she had to fill out. She noted the amount might be even greater than that required in Germany. Her music choice was To Build a Home by The Cinematic Orchestra.



Meet Maria Elena. The student of political sciences chose to spend her Erasmus in Ljubljana after falling in love with the city during a visit years ago. She studies in Pisa. The city is roughly the size of Ljubljana, with one third of its population, but is home to 3 Universities. Her music choice was Perfect by Ed Sheeran.
