International Students

Studying abroad is just an amazing experience. It is unique from the personal as well as academic point of view. Being (for a few months) in an international environment is the best opportunity to establish intercultural contacts, have a valuable insight into a different culture, learn a language and grow as a person. There are four main traits of those who passed some time at the university abroad: they are culturally competent, many speak foreign languages and possess good communication skills, they are mobile and, finally, they develop their personality.
