The topic – “STRANGER – Changing Perspectives”

All the students in different countries are having a different experience during their study abroad. Some of them find themselves in a complete different climate and some of them find themselves in a complete different language. Some students struggle with communication and some struggle with participation. In some places they enjoy a complete different culture and in some they enjoy the multiculturalism. Each place offers you different life, a different world and a different you. Once you step in the place you are no longer a local, but a stranger.
