Music brought exchange students together

Farewell Party for Social Work X-Change Students

Hi everyone! My name is Flo. I´m 30 years old and I have been a German Exchange student at Tampereen Amattikorkeakoulu in Finland. It was such a great time! If you like the colder regions, love the pure nature or want to challenge your sensibility of adoption then Finland could be the right choice for you! You get to know different people from different countries. There are a plenty of things you can do in Finland and I obviously have not managed to participate in every happenings or activities.

I met two guys from Africa, who also love music like I do. So we decided to found a band „Came 4 Exchange“ should be named. We practised a lot nearly every day. We also played a lot for Social Organizations, on birthday parties and also were invited to play on the Universities X-mas Parties.

Additionally the academic options here are really nice. I appreciated the way how the records will be evaluated. You have to do a lot of projects, presentations, essay´s and sometimes at the end there will also take place a small examination. It´s hard for me to keep it short because I am still impressed about Finland and the plenty of „faces“ and options there. 

My conclusion is. I definitely had in Finland the best, nicest time and it was for certain the greatest experience in my life! I would love to do it again anytime! By the way if you are interested in watching some music of us find the links below!
