Message to students

You may occasionally wonder what you could do in the future. Studying abroad and having international experiences should broaden your horizon and help you reflect on yourself. In a different cultural environment, you would find what you have thought to be the norm is not so anymore. You would have to think seriously about how to adjust yourself to unfamiliar circumstances and act accordingly. Talking with people from different countries/backgrounds would give you a new perspective so that you can think about various social issues as your own problems. If you take on the challenge of studying abroad, you would eventually get a return: self-confidence and creative skills. Don't miss this opportunity to have a great international experience, which you can have only as a student. Let's challenge!
