Letters from…

Whether it’s 500 kilometers or 5,000 – the decision to spend a certain time abroad during one’s studies or apprenticeship is a big one. Every year, more than 1,000 students from Freie Universität take this step. We want to know how they are doing there: How was their first day on campus? How are the lodgings, and what are the people like? What do they miss, what are they excited about, what do they find astonishing – and what will their lasting impressions be?

From an island in the Indian Ocean to South America, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and the USA: eleven students from Freie Universität Berlin, who are currently studying abroad, will continue the popular series started four years ago, when students enchanted our readers with tales from Norway, Oman, and  Mozambique – to name just three of the exciting locations.
