Why did you decide to study abroad?
It is totally because I want to explore my networks and views and become a more independent person. I want to try new things when I am still able. Otherwise, I would regret not trying or leaving my comfort zone.
What made you decide on this university?
I have joined the exchange programme in Finland before which is the main reason motivated me. Finland is a good place to study because of the patient teachers and helpful classmates. I do not have any pressures during study.
How is your experience of studying abroad?
It is excellent that I really would like to share my experiences with the others. I can learn new useful knowledge during lessons and know more people by attending different school activities. People are really nice to meet because they are willing to share their own experiences with you.
Why do you think others should not miss out on studying at your university
University of Helsinki is one of the best universities in the world and is the best in Finland. The resources and facilities for research and study are enough and can back up my study. Teachers with high education level are willing to teach and it is easy to contact them. Although students outside European countries need to pay tuition fee, you can apply for different kinds of scholarship.
