Think Globally, Act Locally

Ursa Moze decided to study at the University of Bergen ­because of the possibility of doing subjects in English, and because she wished to experience life in Scandinavia.

I think everyone can find activity that suits them, and get involved. For example I find it really easy to do sports here. I also became a volunteer at Kvarteret and met a lot of new and interesting people.

-I decided to study at the University of Bergen ­because of the possibility of doing subjects in English, and because the curriculum of both the exams I’ll take matches my study plan. Another reason is that I wished to experience life in Scandinavia, and the natural ­surroundings and outdoor activities here.


Satisfied with the Reception

-The introductory week was very helpful and provided all the information I needed. You get to know other exchange students with interests similar to yours. You also got to meet the various student organisations. I think everyone can find a leisure activity that suits them here, and get involved in activities they enjoy in their home countries. For example I find it really easy to do sports here and I am also a volunteer at Kvarteret where I’ve met a lot of new, interesting people.

-The main differences are prices, and because of my ­limited scholarship I really have to be careful how I spend my money. Otherwise, the only thing I think is more accessible here than at home are sport centres and the variety of sports activities offered.

Wishes to Make a Difference Back Home
My future plan is first to finish my degree and hopefully to get a chance to do some practice through another exchange abroad. Then I wish to specialise in my home country and finally practice medicine somewhere in Slovenia. That way maybe I can make a difference in our not really brilliant health system, or at least for the people from my city. You know what they say: “Think globally, act locally”.
