FORMER STUDENT
OF NORWAY:

What are the main reasons for choosing Norway as your study destination?

"The main reasons were the standard of living and beauty. I also wanted to find out how life is in the north of Europe."

Where did you study and why did you choose this institution?

"I did my studies at NHH, Norwegian School of Economics, in Bergen. I didn´t have any other university to choose from in Bergen, but everything work out fine. The school is one of the best in Norway for economic and business studies!"

What was your idea about Norway before you arrived and did you find the impression to be true?

"I thought that Norway was going to be a really beautiful country full of amazing landscapes and traditions. In this aspect I was right. The scenery was impressive. However, I expected the winter to be cold, but in the end it wasn´t that bad."

Compared to your country, what are the main differences when it comes to student life?

"The system is quite different. In my home school I had to attend classes and participate in lot of group work. At NHH it was more about individual study and it was not mandatory to attend a class. You just had to hand in your papers and register for the final exam."

What is the most important academic outcome of your time as a student in Norway?

"Being in class and working together with people from all over the world, and using English in class are the main things that come to mind."

Are there any personal experiences as a student in Norway you would highlight?

"You shouldn´t miss a chance to up in the mountains some 700 meters above sea level or to visit the fjords. The scenery was amazing."

Would you recommend studying in Norway to students at your home university?

"Definitely yes if they want to discover an amazing country that is quite different from Spain and experiment the Norwegian way of living."

What are you doing now and what are your plans for the future?

"Nowadays I am doing a Master of Marketing Management in Milan.  As for the future, I do not know. I’ll probably keep travelling around the world!"
