Study Abroad Experience Essays

A semester abroad does not only mean to study in another country, it also means an incomparable intercultural experience. You actually get the chance to experience a culture from within – a culture that you might have believed to already know because you have spent your holidays in the country or because a neighboring country to Germany cannot be all that different.

CBS students like to spend time worldwide – inside Europe as part of the Erasmus+ Programme, or in many other continents or regions as international exchange or study abroad students. In their reports, they reflect on their study abroad experience and give a lot of practical hints and advice on how to plan the study abroad and cope with daily life.

Barcelona, Paris, Tilburg, or Warsaw – Erasmus reports talk about experiences at partner universities in Europe and give you insights into what life is like in those cities! Get inspired about studying overseas through reports on studying in the USA, Korea, or Mexico. Of course – pictures can tell more than any story – we will be happy if you send your best pictures via email or share them at #cbswanderlust!

Get inspired!

With the study abroad experience essays you can get a glimpse and a taste of what life and studying at our partner universities feel like! You can check out further experience essays in our blog.
