Student Exchange Testimonial
Having lived in Germany for a year on exchange was by far the best decision I made in my years at UNB. It gave me the chance to travel, experience new cultures, meet new people, and learn a new language. An exchange like this is most definitely a character building exercise. You find yourself in a different country and very quickly learn to adapt. Luckily for me, the people were friendly and the food was delicious. It certainly made adapting an easy thing to do.
While in Europe, I took full advantage of the travel opportunities that we just do not have in Fredericton. Within a couple hour train ride, you could be in four countries and dozens of cities. There is just so much to be seen.
Academically, the exchange was also a sound idea. I was able to study just the same as if I was at UNB, any my credits transferred without problems.
To anyone thinking about doing an exchange abroad, I would wholeheartedly recommend it. It is an excellent opportunity to enhance, not just a student's university experience, but their life as a whole.
