And how are things in...?
TU/e students go abroad more and more for their study. Be it for an internship, an exchange semester of for doing research. They write in Cursor about all their experiences abroad.

Yes! Luckily I was around when this miracle happened, a sunny day. Welcome to St. John's, Canada's capital regarding fog, cloudiness and wind!
Chicago, also known as Windy City, is one of the top iconic cities in US. This is also the place where the famous genre of music such as Blues originated and home to the most notorious organized crime boss - Al Capone.
Welcome to the Venice of the North, Stockholm! With these words I was welcomed by the guide who was about to show us the most beautiful places of the capital of Sweden.
Finland, the country with a thousand lakes. The country is beautiful, with breathtaking nature. However, upon arriving here I did notice something: It’s cold here. Very cold. And dark, really dark. Luckily, the Finns are clever, and they have a couple of tricks up their sleeve to combat this.
I came to the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) mainly because I wanted to participate in an exchange program that is technology, disaster and design thinking oriented.
Welcome to Winnipeg, Canada! How do you know that you’re in the middle of nowhere? By reading a sign that says: ‘last McDonalds in 500km’. Stuff like that happens during a 5000km road trip.
After having travelled through the whole of Vietnam for 5 weeks, I arrived virtually clueless in Bandung to study at the Institut Teknologi Bandung, the best technical university in Indonesia.
‘Hey mate, how’s it going?’ is something you won’t hear too often from the cashier ladies in the Albert Heijn, but it is pretty normal here in Australia. I think the ‘stressed-out’ Dutchies can learn a lesson from the openness and friendliness of the Melbournians! For my internship I ended up at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where I have been enjoying the most livable city in the world for the last few weeks.
A little less than three weeks ago I left the Netherlands for Brisbane, Australia, Capital of the Sunshine State. I will be spending most of my summer here for a studying holiday, to get an internationally recognized certificate in the English language. As it is now, my jetlag is gone and I have had the opportunity to observe the life in a large Australian city from up close.
During my internship as part of the Bachelor’s program Industrial Design I discovered a small, but particularly good Master’s degree program in the capital of Denmark. Small is the operative word here, for every year 24 students at the most are admitted to the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID).
