Astrid went to Austria and wants to do it all again

Thu Dec 22 2016

Curious about Austria? Or just want to know more about being an exchange student in general? Here’s some great inspiration from Astrid, a student from France who went to Austria in August 2015 and stayed for 10 months.

This year in Austria is definitely the best experience in my life so far. Now that I’m back “home” I only dream of making another exchange year, in another country.

Want to do it again

Learning a new language and immerce myself in another culture, again. Pick up some little habits that people in my home country might find a bit strange, again. Getting to know people from all over the world who will become my best friends within a couple of minutes just because they know how it’s like to be a stranger, again.

Austria has a lot to give

Austria might be a small country. People might think they speak “Austrian” (which is not completely false) or get it mixed up with Australia (sorry, I haven’t seen any kangaroo there). But it surely has something to offer to you, whether you like skiing, classical music or waltz, or if you’re simply curious and ready to take what will be given to you.

My only advice…

The only advice I can give you is: go for it. Do an exchange year. Choose the country that really makes you dream. Go to Austria if you want to. It won’t be easy every day, but you won’t regret it. I promise.
