American University, Bulgaria
Country of origin: Albania
Study course: Bachelor in Liberal Arts
Why did you decide to study abroad?
The country where I come from is a bit small and does not have a lot of variety when it comes to education opportunities. I was looking for an American University, as I was in love with the American system of education. Among all the alternatives, I chose AUBG.
What made you decide on this university?
One of my friends studies here, so I decided to give her a call. I asked her about AUBG and how it would affect my life after 4 years. Of course, it is not the best university in the world; but I considered all of my options and this one turned out to be the best. The life on campus, the diversity, and the high quality education (the liberal arts program is what I have always dreamed of pursuing) were the main incentives for me to choose AUBG.
How is your experience of studying abroad?
So far so good. The first semester was a bit difficult, so I decided not to get involved in too many extracurricular activities. This semester I am trying to get the best out of AUBG and participate in anything that comes up. I am really enjoying AUBG. I have met so many wonderful people who have beautiful, inspiring souls and minds.
Why do you think others should not miss out on studying at your university
As I mentioned above, AUBG is so diverse. It’s full of creative and beautiful minds who always try to give their contribution to making campus a better place to live every year. You are taught by world-class faculty in small classes for only 25 students. This way, every student can have his/her time to ask questions and express his/her opinion in the class discussions.
