Firstly, VIA University College offers great international and challenging environments since there are many exchange students here. At first, I was a bit afraid because my major is in Automation so Mechanical knowledge is quite new for me. But with the help of professors here, I can easily catch up with others. It really nice when you get close with professors, you can freely ask them question and they will answer you immediately then everything should be fine. At VIA, we have oral exams at the end of the semester, which is really new for me, because I only have 20 minutes to come up with the answers of all course’s knowledge. This required a deeply understanding of the problem. I think this is tough but I still prefer it than written exam because the important thing is that we can understand problems in more practical ways.
VIA has a career service center, where you can go there and ask information for internship etc. Sport hall and others facilities are modern but the fee is quite high. The interesting part is that VIA’s students, clubs usually organize many nice events on Saturday, Sunday such as VIA got talent, treasure hunting, etc. to help students relax after a hard-working week.
Talking about Denmark, it is not so much different from Finland. The only thing is that as an Asian student, it is easier to buy Asian ingredients here than Finland. The supermarket is only 5 to 8 minutes walking from student apartments. So it is quite convenient for students. For me, everything is the same as it is in Finland.
