Universitat Rovira I Virgili, Spain
Country of origin: South Africa
Study course: Master in Wine Tourism Innovation
Why did you decide to study abroad?
I was always interested in travelling and learning about new cultures and people. I figured that studying abroad will provide me with the opportunity to travel and continue with my education. I started off as an exchange student in Germany now I’m back in Europe (Spain) as an international student.
What made you decide on this university?
Universitat Rovira I Virgili stated a new programme last year offering students the opportunity to study two things that I love (tourism and wine). This university is very innovative, it is exactly what I was seeking.
How is your experience of studying abroad?
Live changing in a good way. I have grown so much and met so many people from countries I had no previous knowledge of. Other than that I have been able to share my culture and through that break down stereotypes.
Why do you think others should not miss out on studying at your university
Good international support. The university has been really helpful to us international students. They assigned us buddies before arrival and assisted us through every step of the way.
