Before I came to the FU, I was studying in Canada for a semester. It turned out that this wasn’t the right place for me, and since my mom is German, I decided to apply to the North American Studies program at the FU. What initially drew me to the John-F.-Kennedy Institute is the fact that I can combine six disciplines into the perfect program and, most importantly, can study in English. I’ve just started my second semester, and I am extremely happy with my decision to transfer to the FU. Every new start is difficult, but the FU and Berlin have so much to offer to students, that I got used to everything very quickly and feel very comfortable by now.
