“I went for an international exchange at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I experienced the Amsterdam norm of cycling around in the unpredictable rain, enjoying the many different museums and amazing night life in the city. It was also interesting to experience how different university life is in Europe and meet students from other universities around the world. Besides studying, I took the time to travel with my friends within and out of Europe, including Iceland and Morocco.”
