Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Nokia Internship was great!

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Administrator was sometimes slow to respond to emails. However, my student mentor was great and always made a point to be as helpful as possible!

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

Language barrier may make it difficult to shop at grocery store at first. Suggestion is to learn key words that will help you shop (such as pork,beef,milk,etc).

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

No field trips were arranged by program. Erasmus group organized some cultural events that were fun.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

There were no health issues or safety issues addressed, but I also had no problems with either.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
