Exchange at McMaster University – by Kristof Nortkus

I began my studies at McMaster University (aka. Mac) in early September. It’s ranked as the 4th top university in Canada, it has great student life, excellent facilities, and is set in a beautiful location.

All Roads Lead to Edinburgh – by Rachael Ingleton

On my first day in Edinburgh, one of my lecturers explained that Edinburgh, as a city, as not had an ethnically homogenous population since the 7th Century A.D. He continued on to explain that as an ethnically eclectic city, you’re not a visitor in Edinburgh, nor is it a place where you can call yourself […]

Arrival in England- Jasmine Weisbrodt

Apparently heading to England in September meant glorious spring-style sunshine! My best way of describing Sheffield is as England’s own San Francisco, minus the coast. Every distance involves some variation of steepness, as the city is built on a ‘natural amphitheatre’ of hills (intro-week fun fact). I haven’t minded too much, as I’ve remained distracted […]

Exchange at Lund University – By Sascha Derrington-Borosewicz

To this day, almost five months have passed since I arrived in Lund, Sweden. Thinking back on everything that’s happened since I arrived, it seems a somewhat difficult task to compress it all into a blog, though I’ll try my best. First, the weather: if you’re coming here for the ‘spring’ semester at the start […]
