SJSU Exchange Program

Introduction: Even before starting my studies in Germany, I knew that I would spend a semester abroad. However, at the time it was unclear to me which semester was best for this and in which country I would like to have this experience. After a lot of back and forth and the stress of my studies, I decided to go to the 5th semester, because a stay abroad in this semester is best (also from the course plan). The question…

Housing (costs, accommodation in general, etc.) In general, a room in San Diego can be found very quickly. We recommend searching on Craigslist.com. Expect around USD 700-800 a month. Those who want to live cheaper can join forces with other exchange students (Facebook groups) to share an apartment close to the university. So the rent can be reduced to around 400-500 USD. Another option is to share a room, which cuts the price in half and which is tolerated by…

HPU Exchange Program

Aloha! Not just a universal greeting, but also an attitude to life that I don’t want to miss! But before you want to set foot on this wonderful piece of earth, you should plan something beforehand. Ideally with the great support of MicroEDU! I decided to go to Hawai’i on a whim and relatively late. Since I definitely had to leave for a semester for my studies, I naturally looked where it should lead me. But once the decision was…

CSUSM Exchange Program

CSUSM Exchange Program

The University I chose CSUSM because I wanted to study in the USA and actually get to know American life. There are now so many exchange students at the larger universities that some courses are only offered for them. This is not the case on a smaller campus like San Marcos. The California State University system is also a little more financially feasible if you think of the costs of a semester abroad, which can generally be very high in…

The advice from MicroEDU and the organization worked very well. Those responsible for the universities in the USA were easily reachable…

University The university looks pretty good from the outside, it’s a pretty old and beautiful building. However, the rooms are old and not modern. There is absolutely no comparison to the German standard. There are some lecture rooms that have been renovated, but most of the rooms are in need of renovation. What bothered me most personally was the library and the opening times. Too few seats, small and old study area and the heating did not always work. In…

Program I completed my studies at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo as a freemover, which offers the advantage of being able to choose a location that your home university does not offer. The winter semester at VIU begins in September and ends shortly before Christmas, so the times differ from those of many German universities, which in turn creates a time buffer that can be used for an internship or for traveling. According to Abbreviationfinder, VIU is the abbreviation of Vancouver…

Then it was time to choose which country I would like to go to and which universities would be suitable.

After a bit of planning and research, I decided to spend a semester abroad through MicroEDU and to Canada – it would be Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario.

Information on BU The BU campus stretches along the Charles River. Unlike many other American universities, however, it is not a traditional campus: the main buildings of the university are all along one street, Commonwealth Avenue. All the important buildings of the university are located on this street: all lecture rooms, food court, libraries, the university’s own bookstore, fitness center, etc. Approx. 30,000 students study at the BU.

As a disclaimer: Since I was a minor during my two semesters at CSUSM, my experiences are probably a bit different from those of the others who did a semester abroad there (driver’s license, etc. ). But that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t necessarily recommend a semester abroad at CSUSM! See more information on ehuacom. Accommodation After thinking about which of the host families offered by Homestay I should choose, I found accommodation with a Persian host family, who gave me…

The East Campus is divided into smaller streets and all students live in row…

Since the first hurdle in the decision-making process was cleared, the next step was to find the right “place”, the right country and thus the right university. The USA as…

I spent the 5th semester of my bachelor’s degree at California State University Chico in the winter. The main reason for my choice was the fact that comparatively few international students study in Chico and that I was less tempted to speak German all the time. Chico is a small but nice student town with around 80,000 inhabitants, so everything can be reached by bike in a very short time. Accommodation I stayed with a host family who were really…

I studied for a trimester 2009/2010 at Victoria University of Wellington (VUW, see ehuacom) in the program of the ‘self directed study’. On the one hand, this gave me a lot of personal responsibility, but with wonderful support, which was characterized by very personal and relaxed interaction with my supervisor and his ‘lab meeting group’. On the other hand, I could organize my time myself and decide when I do what. For six months I lived in Wellington in a…
