"Personally, my understanding of the Northern way of life and Arctic culture grew enormously, and the experiences left lots of issues to be reflected after my return to my home country."
"Spending one semester abroad was the best decision I could have made. I did not just meet people from different countries, open my mind to different cultures, participate in the local traditions and studies in one of the best education system in the world, but I also realised what I wanted to do as a master."
"Through my master’s studies, I have become aware of a range of organisations with which I could pursue a career, and already by initial contact with one of these, it seemed that the mere fact of which study programme I was doing was opening doors for me."
"I enrolled in the north2north program to broaden my knowledge in a different culture and on different subjects than I was studying in Canada. This experience caused me to rethink my career, where I was going to live, and what I was going to do with my life."
"I chose to come to Tromsø because of the fantastic geography. Everything here is just incredible: the nature, the fjords, the Northern Lights, the culture, the people - everything. It is a very valuable opportunity for a very unique experience."
"Norway is a country that has been really successful with its resource management policies and decisions. So part of my reasoning for coming here was to learn from the decisions that they have made. Basically, I want to bring the experience that I gain here back to Canada where I can use it in my future career path."
"An exchange period in Yakutsk is a spectacular possibility to see how strong, robust and treasured traditions connect with phenomena of the global world."
