    social student life during your semester I lived at a dorm called Fenner Hall together with approx 500 fellow ANU students I have subsequently made 500 new friends Making friends at Fenner literarily just requires walking down to the common kitchens and sparking up a conversation Rather the problem is getting time for yourself because you will spend most of your days in close company with these awesome people I guess it depends a bit on what you are looking for but for me it was perfect Via Olav Soldal 8 What electives did you take and what did you think of them Tell us a bit about the workload exams etc Well to summarize shortly and this is no easy task I took three courses at ANU Identity Difference and Ethnicity 7 5 ECTS Australian Political Institutions 7 5 ECTS Australian National Internship Program ANIP 15 ECTS I thoroughly enjoyed them all The first two are pretty standard courses one being a sociology course my first and the other a comparative politics course Fairly straight forward curriculum and normal exams The last one however is completely unique to ANU The ANIP is a highly esteemed and popular internship program which invites students from all universities in Australia to undertake research focused internships in public policy offices from the capital After a long and time consuming application process much like for any internship interns are given offers within museums public institutes think tanks government departments or within politicians offices in the Australian Parliament I was employed in the office of the Minister for Indigenous Affairs Senator Nigel Scullion Here I did research as part of my course and delivered a longer report towards the end of the semester I had normal classes as well as working in the office approximately two days a week You can choose to do it as a one course two course or a full semester value Mine counted as two courses so the exam was pretty big but it also gave me more time for my research I highly recommend this internship program It has been hugely rewarding and fruitful for my education It is a unique chance to combine real life work experience from an intership with a semester from an exhange For more information on the program itself you can check out their web page http anip anu edu au 9 What s the social life like compared to Denmark In my opinion the student social life here is much more diversified Just as you will encounter all kinds of cultures and traditions you can find almost any activity to suit your interests Now my experience of social life in Denmark has been mainly attached to one of two Sports and drinking You can get this down under as well but there are so many other options available as well At ANU there are loads of social clubs sports activities interest groups debating societies even what they call learning communities You meet up

    get used to their accent and dialect called Singlish Quite funny and irritating at the same time What is the accommodation like Considering a Copenhagen budget of about DKK 5000 accommodation has its pros and cons Most exchange students live in nice apartments in tall skyscrapers with facilities such as common pool Jacuzzi steam bath tennis courts and gym and not far from the city centre However the only way to afford such places is sharing rooms I like my room it has big glass windows a private bathroom with bathtub overlooking the city but sometimes I wish I had it all to myself 50m Pool in the housing complex Via Zoë Toriello My bathtub view on the 14th Floor Via Zoë Toriello What electives are you taking and do you like them The equivalent of 30 ECTS is four electives at SMU I am very interested in marketing and branding therefore I chose Strategic Brand Management Storytelling for Brands and Organizations Marketing Research and Advertising I really like the courses and this makes it easier to be engaged and committed to school It s also really nice that we get to make up our own schedule This way I can insure that work and classes are perfectly aligned during my week FYI For most of the courses expect a pretty high workload group projects presentations individual assignments quiz What are the main differences between CBS and SMU First of all the size of the classes and the participation in Copenhagen I am used to having lectures with over 100 people This makes it impossible to have discussions and debates At SMU classes are made up of max 50 students and the interactions are pretty intense especially since participation is graded yes ahah Most courses at SMU require group work meaning you will end up having to deal with four different groups during one semester Also since I m used to having a quarter system at CBS I find it pretty tough to coordinate four courses at the same time within one semester at SMU But on the bright side you will only have one lecture per week Forgot to mention attendance is compulsory and makes up part of the grade Tip do not get classes on Thursday morning Wednesday night is ladies night What advice would you give to someone considering Singapore for his her exchange semester Singapore is the perfect choice if you want to have a moderate Asian experience The city is pretty western people speak English and you can find any kind of food However I strongly recommend to be open minded towards the multiple cultures living here and be patient You will be struggling big time with the locals when it comes to bureaucracy and similar things just remember to count to ten and then give up Singapore is truly beautiful and there is so much to do But if you get tired of the city you can easily and cheaply flight to South East

    a month for a decent dorm room that you share two persons is definitely something to be happy about What courses did you take I took two mandatory marketing courses a finance course and a course in negotiation To put it this way the marketing courses were mandatory so there was no way around them the finance course was partly out of interest partly for advancement and the negotiation course was purely out of interest What are the main differences between CBS and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Well they are both universities and that is where it stops CBS is the type of university where one is basically not required to do anything else than meet up at Amager Strandvej a few times a semester and write about whatever one has tried to get into ones own head over the last week or two This is good in many ways since it allows for flexibility and thereby the possibility of managing your studies with a part time job friends and family more or less seamlessly At HKUST and pretty much anywhere else in the world I guess your grades depend on so much more than a few exams attendance in class participation group projects peer reviews and of cause your exams This as well has many advantages most importantly that you on a daily basis interact with and learn from your classmates many of whom have a totally different take on things because of their different learning paths Of course there are many other and more personal differences than what I just mentioned most of which stem from the fact that the students at HKUST actually live on campus and hence spend most of their time there They have unions for pretty much everything from cardboard gaming and karaoke to animal welfare to coding and stock trading In addition they hold dorm festivals Cantonese singing contests and weekly sport events between the different faculties So if you want to experience the American Pie like college life you probably shouldn t go to HKUST but if you re up for a great cultural and social experience it s definitely something I can warmly recommend What was the most bizarre thing you experienced in Hong Kong It may not have been so bizarre but definitely something I will remember experiencing the Umbrella Revolution and how much it meant for many of my fellow students it was genuinely touching and inspirational Travelling outside Hong Kong Shanghai World Financial Center Source Kristoffer Winther Why should students go to Hong Kong for exchange Hong Kong offers an amazing big city atmosphere similar to what you would expect in major western cities world class cuisine a vibrant nightlife modern architecture quirky local areas a ton of 7 11s and shopping for all needs Yet Hong Kong has some of the most beautiful and scenic natural reserves just outside of the city whether you want to go feed monkeys on the Monkey hill cliff

    people have a strong Singlish accent that will take some time to get used too What is the accommodation like Unfortunately the school doesn t have any dorms so you will need to find your own accommodation Most exchange students meet up at a hostel and then get a real estate agent to help them find an apartment near the campus Usually you will be approximately six people sharing a three bedroom two bathroom apartment at approximately 1 000 SGD or 4 500 per person So everyone basically shares a room with either someone from their home university or a stranger Luckily I have some family friends here so I have been able to stay with them What electives are you taking and do you like them Source Jazzy Jonsson de Guzman I am taking four courses at SMU Retail Management Strategic Brand Management Consumer Behavior and Social Stratification and Inequality I think that generally the content of the courses is easier to understand here but the difficult part is managing the time for all the papers and group projects Some of the work they make you do is really repetitive for example my group did a report then presented on the report and then after we had to write a 3 page summary on the presentation I was like What Didn t you listen to our presentation Other than that I really enjoy my classes because since the class size is small it is quite interactive and the professors know you by name What are the main differences between CBS and SMU I would definitely say that the main difference is all the group work you have to do It is insane because you are often 5 7 people in a group all with different schedules and you need to coordinate to meet at least once or twice a week with four different groups The other big difference is of course the teaching style It is a lot more about memorization than the application of theory What is the most bizarre thing that you have experienced in Singapore The local dish wanton mee Source Jazzy Jonsson de Guzman It would have to be one of my group members sending us a little too much information about why she couldn t come to our group meeting She had a stomach bug but let s just say she told us this a little more vividly What are the biggest differences between CBS and SMU Singapore is a super fun city with the best of the East and the West There is lots of delicious food great nightlife and the opportunity to experience a new school If you want to travel in South East Asia during the weekend it s super easy Singapore is also very safe so if you have never been to Asia before its the perfect place to get a taste of the East without a complete culture shock Share this story Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn About the Author

    bathrooms It s a 20 minute walk from Sauder which can be a bitch if it s raining but some people have opted for buying a bike Fairview has the best coffee shop ever called the Beanery I don t know whether to be proud or embarrassed that the baristas recognise me when I come in Marine Drive is an apartment building which is also nice they get a TV which is closer to Sauder but not that many exchange students live there so it s a bit isolated from all the exchange student parties What electives are you taking and do you like them To get 30 ECTS you have to take 5 subjects each are worth 6 ECTS so keep this in mind if you need to get 7 5 ECTS to fulfil a certain criteria My favourite subject that I m taking is Sales Management where we got the chance to do a sales call with Proctor and Gamble and where we learn great sales skills It s a very interactive class where you never sit still and the teacher is full of energy Buyer Behaviour is great and chill too it is basically the psychology behind marketing and understanding why consumers make certain purchase decisions E Marketing is fun and you learn some pretty hands on skills about social media personal branding and you work with a client to develop an online marketing plan I decided to take Financial Management which has a misleading name as it is entirely about M As It s a very case based subjects but it s tough if you forgot to pay attention in Corporate Finance Lastly I m taking New Enterprise Development which I can recommend if you re into entrepreneurship At the start of the course you find a group and think of a product service and the idea is to change it a million times until you have a product that people actually need and would want to buy You have to do 5 customers interviews though which can be extremely time consuming but you learn some great entrepreneurship creative and communication skills What are the biggest differences between CBS and UBC My first frat party ever Source Sidsel Marie Lyhne Everything about teaching and learning is different Our grade is split into participation group assignments individual assignments mid terms finals quizzes and often other things too This means you have to be active in class you have to juggle 4 or 5 group projects at a time and you constantly have to be on top of work Slacking is not really an option but when it comes to final exams you might be lucky like me to only have one But if you hate that at CBS your grade is completely dependent on 1 project or 1 exam UBC s grading system will be for you Then there s campus life which I would recommend if you want the campus experience Oh yeah and we have

    I have had to act out my requests a couple of times but I find that the effort to speak a little French even in situations where your comfort zone vocabulary doesn t apply will be valued tremendously and it will encourage the French to do the same in English What is accommodation like I struggled a bit with accommodation mainly because of a misunderstanding but the international student office here at TBS was more than helpful to me They were resilient in helping me out and they found me a great apartment in a residence that is practically on campus The rent in Toulouse is rather high so high that I could probably switch my 25m2 apartment here for a three floor house at the seaside in Cancun but the location here is priceless What electives are you taking and do you like them As mentioned I took a French language course other than that I am taking Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy Analysis Financial Analysis Human Resource Management International Trade Operations Management Business Marketing Managerial Economics and Management Control The Financial Analysis course is built solely around a course that all the French students took while studying their bachelor so that leaves me working extra hard on a course that isn t really catching my attention but other than that I like all the courses What are the biggest differences between CBS and Toulouse Academically speaking it is probably the level of interaction here at TBS More than often we are divided into small classes of 40 people which creates a classroom atmosphere and great interaction between the professor and the students Since there are minimum required readings and barely any books to purchase attendance is important at TBS Socially it s the fact that the French students party fiercely on Mondays and take it easy on Thursdays which we all know is a big difference from CBS s Nexus parties What have been your coolest experiences so far Source Maria Sølvsteen The coolest thing about my exchange here has been the realization that Toulouse is such an underrated city All French cities stand in the shadows of the glorified Paris but Toulouse is mesmerizing in a more aesthetic way at least in my opinion It s cleaner beautiful and then there is this indescribable sense of calmness I have enjoyed going on road trips to nearby small cities strolling through every tiny street at the Capitole and constantly being in awe of the architecture that portrays such history but the thing that first popped in to my head was the sundown at canal du midi there are simply no words Why should other exchange students go to France for exchange If you haven t seen the world s big cities and you are yearning to explore at a fast pace then I think that is what you should do If you like I have seen a lot of big cities already I think it s refreshing to dive

  • CBSLife University of Limerick - CBSLife
    after a couple of weeks you get used to it and even find humor in what they are saying cause boy they say some funny things What is accommodation like Do you live at the school or do you need to find your own apartment Goody Student Park Source Facebook As said above Limerick is a student city therefore it is filled with student accommodations both on and off campus Personally I live off campus at Groody Student Park which is absolutely amazing It is around 20 minutes walk to UL ten minutes walk to Aldi and with a liquor store right across from the gates Be aware that you should book your student accommodation as early as possible I prefer living off campus because the guards here do not disrupt our parties as oppose to on campus accommodations Which electives are you taking on exchange and do you like them so far At UL you take 5 electives for 30 ECTS so 6 for each You have to take 3 from your faculty and the other two may be from anywhere you want I am taking 3 business courses which are perfectly satisfactory Although expect midterms and papers through out the semester rather than in the end of it The grades are usually divided in percentages on different assignments and exams for some of them on attendance as well I am also taking creative writing and visual culture which I am also quite happy with The one difference I ve noticed is that at least with my study program at CBS is that the subjects are much more practical and you get to do a lot of things yourself What are the fundamental differences between CBS and the uni you re on exchange at I think the biggest difference is that CBS is a business school and UL is a university for all faculties which means that you meet so many different types of people Also UL is much much bigger On the other hand students are much better dressed at CBS because 80 of student at UL walk around in sweatpants What about exchange has been the best so far The best thing about coming to Limerick has been meeting all of these amazing people that will remain in my life forever When you are away from all of your friends and family the people you meet here become your family Why should other students from CBS go to Limerick for exchange You should come to Limerick because it is the best thing that you ll ever do both academically and socially Share this story Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn About the Author Tammy Mtchedlishvili Tammy is a third year Information Management student the study program she very randomly chose but has come to enjoy and even love Tammy has been living in Denmark for about eight years The Danish culture has worked its way through and accommodated itself in her heart by now even though it is very
