As something that had been at the top of my bucket list since starting University, exchange has been an experience that has well and truly lived up to my expectations. For the last three and a half months my home away from home has been Tilburg, a small town in the south of the Netherlands.

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.

It kind of just sunk in at that moment that I truly was on the other side of the world and that my dream about going on exchange had come true. When I woke up the next morning and looked out my window it was like living in a real life snow globe and I was amazed by how beautiful the city was in the daylight.

I decided to attend Tilburg University after my best friend came back from what he termed the best six months of his life. After looking at the other potential universities offered to law students, the blogs posted on this website and the surveys posted on UTS Blackboard, I soon realised why he had picked Tilburg.
