Marco Vogel and Till Brand about Málaga (Spain)

"Our semester abroad in Málaga was an experience that we won't forget in a hurry. Even outside the uni we met so many nice people from all over the world. It was interesting that the Spanish culture and way of life was more different from the German one than we expected."

Thomas Hilser about New Zealand

"The time at the Eastern Institute of Technology in New Zealand was a fantastic experience for me. Besides the study programme, there was also the unique attitude towards life that the New Zealanders have. There was also enough time to travel so you could see some of the impressive and very varied landscape of the country."
