Unexpected events are something you have to be prepared to deal with when studying in Asia. Not everything runs as smoothly as it does in the western societies. Indonesia is no exception! Unexpected class changes and a majestic volcano threatening to erupt, made the autumn semester 2017 in Indonesia one to remember. But no matter how many downs our students are facing – the many smiles, new friendships and countless of adventures around and outside the islands, will be on our students‘ mind when flying back to their home countries.
Many of the students who chose to study at Warmadewa, Udayana or MataramUniversity left their home for the first time. For the others, this was just another big adventure. Either way, the distinct cultural perspectives gave all our students a better understanding and appreciation of Indonesia´s people and history. The social atmosphere, amazing food, customs and traditions left a mark in everyone’s heart.
At the certification ceremony, both students and teachers gave speeches. Laughs were shared and everyone got reminded what an amazing experience these four months have been. The following gallery will show some of the highlights during this semester:
We wish all our 2017 students all the best for 2018 and the future to come. I think many of you will agree when I say „Hasta La Vista beautiful Indonesia, until next time!“. Remember to embrace your golden memories and please, let’s stay in touch!
