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 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”.
