University of Bamberg, Germany
“My time in Bamberg, Germany as an exchange student was an enriching, rewarding, and valuable experience. Not only did I get an opportunity to learn a new language, I got to experience one of the world’s oldest and richest cultures. Germans were very kind, friendly, and helpful to me during my exchange and I made some great and lifelong friends. In addition, the University of Bamberg offered subsidized excursions to 10 German cities (including Berlin and Potsdam) and 1 Austrian city (Salzburg) which allowed me to travel throughout Germany during my 11 month exchange. This has been a great and positively life-changing experience. I highly recommend the exchange experience to students at the University of Winnipeg”.    - Bryan

“First of all I would like to thank University of Winnipeg and all the people who have given me this golden opportunity to achieve this great experience.  Student exchange is the opportunity to do and see things you could of never dreamed of. Gain new friends and become a local in another culture. A journey of discovery and personal growth filled with unforgettable memories. After spending one year in Bamberg, Germany, I can say that I have learnt so much from the german culture and most of all my german has improved much more than what I had expected before going into this programI have gained more experience, confidence and self-dependence within this year than ever. A big thank again to everyone who has made it possible.”   - Mila

"My time in Bamberg, Germany was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had in my life. With only a population just over 70,000 people, student life dominates the city. I met some of my greatest friends from all over the world and still keep in touch to this day. Another great thing is that Germany is in the heart of Europe making it very easy to travel to other nearby countries, also inexpensively. The University of Bamberg really goes out of there way to help international students and plan a lot of excursions and events. I improved my language skills while also experiencing another education system. Studying abroad has opened a lot of new doors for me. It is a time in my life I will never forget." - Taylor

“Korea was an amazing experience; trying new food, discovering new places and most importantly making new friends. Learning about the culture and customs was mind blowing but very fascinating. I would definitely recommend travelling abroad to everyone especially for study!”  - Monique

University of New England, Australia
“I would highly recommend an exchange. It’s an amazing experience that changed my life. I met so many wonderful people from all over the world and made friendships that will last a lifetime. Doing an exchange allowed me to see different parts of the world while continuing my education. The University of New England is a university where you get to personally know your professors and they go out of their way to inspire and help you. I definitely wish I had chosen to study abroad for a whole year instead of just a semester!” - Bryce
