UR Study Abroad

UR Study Abroad

My semester abroad in Mexico 2013/14 came about through MicroEDU. This organization arranges semesters abroad around the globe and helps you with the registration at the universities. My heart beat faster when I saw that study abroad programs in Mexico were also being offered. According to abbreviationfinder,  Universidad Regiomontana is short for UR. The Regiomontana University in Monterrey, Mexico is a small, manageable university. It wasn’t particularly difficult to apply there and a nice woman named Katrin is always there…

Reasons for the semester abroad At an event organized for the Holzminder students, a number of companies presented themselves and demonstrated which criteria are nowadays necessary for a successful application.

Application process and general organizational matters First of all: yes, all the organizational stuff to organize the semester abroad is an extremely exhausting, sometimes nerve-wracking and incredibly time-consuming mix of towers of documents, numerous phone calls with various institutions and people, mountains of emails and countless errands.

SMU Study Abroad

SMU Study Abroad

The KPU was perfect for that. When you apply, you have to specify your preferred courses. It takes a while to find your way around the university’s website and later on the internet portals, but the offer and the possibilities are worth it. The university’s…
