My year at Thessaloniki as a student at International Hellenic University was great in many aspects including the quality of the suprvision that I received, the university facilities, the friendship of fellow students and staff, the intellectual challenges during the classes and the quality of life in Thessaloniki. The academic staff were extremely supportive and you can always go to speak with them if you have any questions or need extra support. The faculty always encouraged us to attend career development events and many other workshops. The experience gave me a good start for pursuing an academic career. In terms of student experience, I have enjoyed talking to students from various nations and developing friendships with them. Being in an international university is an experience I will never forgot.

It was one of the bests experience in my life. Before studies in this University I could not believe that it is possible to learn so many interesting and difficult things in one year. The time I have spent in Greece changed my life in a very good way and fulfilled my heart with a bit crazy but very warm Greek attitude. I am happy that here I met so many smart and educated people from all world with who I was able to discuss everything about life, experience and education.

Being a part of the new unique programme Black Sea Cultural Studies is very exciting and responsible at the same time. One has to have enough ability, ambition and motivation to cope with all the requirements of the demanding MA, but the diversity of teaching methods and amazingly enthusiastic and helpful professors make the studying process extremely interesting and pleasant. I can say without any doubt that this year abroad is a brilliant learning experience for me!
