København: Having a hygge of a time!

When I spontaneously added University of Copenhagen as my main preference of exchange destinations, I had no idea that this would end up being one of the best decisions of my life. On this day it has been exactly 3 months since I came here, and it has been such a wonderful blur of new friends and experiences. I live in Nørrebro, in Bispebjerg Kollegiet. Nørrebro is such a wonderfully diverse place, but I hold a grudge as the amount of kebabs I have consumed has literally made me become one. They are just so damn delicious.

Head in a Fishbowl

The first thing that people would say when I told them I was going on exchange was –

“Man I totally wish I had done an exchange!”

Followed by –

“You’re going by yourself?!”

These two sentences adequately sum up my exchange experience so far, it’s always been something I’ve wanted to do knowing I would regret it if I didn’t, but also something that I knew would stretch my character. Continue reading “Head in a Fishbowl”

Hej Copenhagen! It’s been a treat getting to know you

I’ve been in Copenhagen for almost three months. Landing in mid January, I weathered the last of the winter, a couple of impressive city snowfalls, and now April lurks on the horizon, and with it, sunny Spring. Over the last few weeks, as the weather’s gotten warmer and the sunny days longer, it’s been like getting to know a second city that’s emerged from a winter’s hibernation, the streets, parks and bridges are full, the bikes are plentiful, and flowers have bloomed with a suddenness and completeness that I think you only get in Europe. And though the sun has been more than a blessing, the morning I rode in the dark and through the snow for 9km and still got to school on time is probably something I’ll put on my resume.

Hej from København!

On January 2nd I said an emotional farewell to my family and friends in Sydney as I prepared for my departure to Copenhagen. Although thinking back, the hardest goodbye was almost definitely to the sun. Leaving Australian summer for Danish winter suddenly seemed like quite a crazy idea. Nevertheless I hoped on my flight fuelled with excitement for my next adventure. 30 hours later and 30 degrees colder, I arrived in Copenhagen. Continue reading “Hej from København!”

My ‘Hygge’ Exchange in Denmark!!

Hi UTS Fam,

its been a pleasure to be given an opportunity to write a blog on something that I can’t describe in words. Exchange – when I decided to apply for exchange programme, I was sure that I wanted to go Europe. After evaluating different universities in terms of ranking and reputation, I made up my mind to go on an exchange in Denmark. And I got an admission in Copenhagen Business School (CBS). Though, I didn’t want to leave my home, I was prepared for the exciting times ahead in Europe.
