BU Review

BU Review

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. The semester at the BU starts with an orientation day for all…

SDSU Review

Education: After completing my main studies in my business administration master’s degree, I went to SDSU or San Diego State University as detailed on ehuacom. The first question that arose for me was which courses I should take (and also be offered) at the SDSU in order to complete my studies in Germany. The SDSU internet portal, which includes all courses, provides an initial overview of the wide range of offers at the SDSU. Just go to the SDSU web…

HPU Review

Spending the semester abroad at HPU was one of the best decisions I have ever made. After completing a semester abroad at San Diego State University in 2007, it was clear to me that I would like to take this opportunity again. As I did then, I turned to ehuacom to keep my organization as simple as possible and to have a contact person at all times. Everything worked very well and without any problems. Everything worked out pretty quickly…

CSUSM Review

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…

CSUN Review

Application process My sister has been studying at UCLA since March 2016 and was originally only planning a vacation in Los Angeles. However, at the beginning of April I spontaneously decided to do a semester abroad. For me, of course, only Los Angeles and the surrounding area were considered for study. I was then made aware of the MicroEDU by my sister and a friend, both of whom were referred to CSU Fullerton in 2013 through MicroEDU. Since I am…

CSUMB Review

Where did i live How did I get the accommodation? The Monterey Bay campus offers a variety of accommodation options. Many apartments are in close proximity to the lecture buildings and the library. The East Campus, which houses most of the international students, is approximately 3 km away. The own bus line (26 East Campus Express) commutes between Main Campus and East Campus every 20 minutes. The East Campus is divided into smaller streets and all students live in row…

Preparation The preparations for the semester beginning with the election of the host institution. In doing so, attention should be paid to the desired host country, suitable semester times, a comprehensive range of courses and appropriate tuition fees. First of all: California is beautiful, but expensive. MicroEDU is extremely helpful and will help you prepare. They provide a checklist so that you can easily work through every step. Allow enough time (approx. 3-6 months), as certain things like the visa…

CSUF Review

1 before 1. 1 Why USA? Why Fullerton? It quickly became clear to me that I wanted to go to an English-speaking country in order to be as confident as possible in terms of language and to be able to apply and deepen everything I had learned in recent years. 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…

CSUC Review

CSUC Review

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…

University of California Santa Barbara Student Review

Candidature It is usually recommended that you apply approx. 10-12 months before the start of your studies abroad, so that there is enough time to organize. I recommend this to everyone! My plan was to study at UCSB in the Fall Quarter 2018 (starting September). Since I only had a response from RWTH in January 2018 that I did not get a place as part of a partnership, my application process began quite late. However, it was already clear to…

University of California San Diego Student Review

California was my dream destination for my semester abroad and my decision finally fell on San Diego. Apartment Search An accommodation on-campus is not provided for international students. If you want to book from home, Kamo Housing (Bay Pointe Apartments in Pacific Beach) or Anatolia Housing (Costa Verde Apartments close to the university) are ideal. In addition to standard apartments, both also offer a gym and pool . A lot of international students lived here, so they often came to…

University of California Los Angeles Student Review

Because I registered relatively late and was interested in UCLA, it was almost impossible to get a visa in time. I almost had to give up on my dream, but then a CC employee found another option. I had to completely change my choice of course, but that turned out to be a relief in America. The trick was I was only allowed to take a maximum of eight units, because then you don’t need a visa. I can only…

During my two month stay on the west coast of the USA I took the courses “Financial Information Analysis” and “Financial and Behavioral Economics” at the oldest and most famous University of California – Berkeley. Program start Within the first few days after arrival, there are essentially three meetings that make it easier to get started: After a brief introduction to IT, you are activated for the university network and can therefore be reached in many places on campus and…

San Diego State University Student Review

Many testimonials are general and read like stories. They are certainly more timeless than this one. I would like to give a specific one that addresses many of the questions I asked myself at the beginning. Course choice: Was it really that difficult? Often it seems hopeless to get into a course at the beginning, but the time to crash seems to me more than enough. Sports courses: Highly recommended, especially the water sports on offer, the trainers are very…

California State University Long Beach Student Review

Preparation The preparation went as smoothly as possible, only obtaining the confirmation of the available capital, which was required by Cal State, took some time at the Sparkasse. Otherwise, your website was very helpful with this. Book the flight earlier rather than later and arrive a little earlier than necessary, this makes settling in and looking for an apartment easier. Under no circumstances do the search for an apartment in advance, of course do not make advance payments or believe…

I spent the 2012/2013 winter semester at California State University Fullerton. The diverse range of courses, the university’s good reputation and the meaningful experience reports convinced me to choose this university for my semester abroad.

Courses: I study industrial engineering and have only taken business and finance courses in Fullerton: Managerial Accounting ACCT 201B, Financial Management FIN 320, Organizational Behavior…

United States Education

United States Education

Training The United States is a world leader in post-secondary education and research. In 2010, just over 41% of the US population aged 25-64 had some form of post-secondary education (in Sweden 33%). However, basic education is not as prominent. In international statistics, literacy is stated to be 100%, but the task is misleading. Recent reports from the states show major shortcomings in both mathematics and literacy. In a 2010 PISA study involving 15-year-old students from more than 70 countries,…
