York St John University

York St John University

After all my attempts to apply for a semester abroad in England directly through my home university had failed, MicroEDU was my last hope. Thanks to Christiane’s great support in the application process, whom I could always turn to with any questions, my wish to go to York St John University was fulfilled. I had already taken a course there in 2014 called “English for Personal Development” and immediately fell in love with the city of York, the English culture…

UCR Exchange Program

1. Preparation After I realized relatively quickly that I wanted to spend my semester abroad in the USA, the first thing to do was to decide on a university there. Not that easy with the wide range of options. What made my decision easier for me, however, was the fact that I didn’t want to study abroad for 5 months (1 semester), but only for 3 months (1 trimester). So I was able to screen out some universities right away….

UCLA Exchange Program

One of my biggest dreams was always to see Hollywood and all the stars. Since I had been thinking about studying abroad for future job prospects for a long time, but I didn’t want to “waste” a whole semester on my actual studies, I decided on the summer sessions at UCLA. You didn’t even need a TOEFL test for this, you only needed proof of English language courses from university or high school. According to Abbreviationfinder, UCLA is the abbreviation of…

Getting there: I was picked up together with other Summer Session participants at Los Angeles International Airport by the pick-up service of the UCI Summer Session Team. They were easy to find as they were standing right by the terminal holding up signs. A shuttle bus then took us to the accommodations. This made the journey very pleasant and you could relax yourself after the long flight. Accommodation: I was housed in the Arroyo Vista student residence complex. This one…

Goodbye! I am studying Theoretical Physics and I did my first year of Masters at UC Davis. I actually ended up in Davis by chance because studying at my dream university didn’t work out. When I had to find an alternative university at very short notice, I decided on UC Davis because of the relaxed life in California, the good reputation of UC Davis and the easy application process via MicroEDU. In retrospect, I’m also very happy that I studied…

I attended Summer Session D at UC Berkeley this summer. I heard about it through this website. But I already knew Berkeley from listening to it, as the cradle of liberal alternative thinking in America and as a globally respected top university. That looks good on a résumé, I thought to myself, and it’s always good to get a breath of fresh air and experience new things, so the decision was an easy one for me. Compared to normal tuition…

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…

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…

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…

After a bit of a laborious search for an apartment, I found accommodation in advance and then flew to Canada at the end of August. There in Toronto – Pearson…
