I have been studying in Utrecht, The Netherlands for three months now. I have loved it here and I am excited for the remaining two months.
I am studying Sports and Entertainment Marketing at the HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. Studying here is quite easy as I am used to the studying method where there isn’t that many lectures and more group work and other projects. For example, I have worked at Utrecht Marathon and 3FM Awards festival as a part of my studies. In May my class is also doing a trip to Rome. In comparison to my studies in Finland, we do a lot more projects for actual companies. The teachers are more direct and demanding. If they don’t think your paper is good enough, they will tell you and ask you to do it again.
As I have quite lot of free time, I have taken an advantage of it. I spend lots of time with my friends, go to the gym and running and do a lot of normal things I usually do when I have free time. I also have lots of time to travel around the Netherlands as well as around Europe. I have already visited four other countries during my exchange, done two road trips and other trips around the Netherlands.
I feel like my time here just flies by. But I still have two months left and I am going to make the most of it!
