Studies at AUAS
My time at AUAS has been both exhilarating and challenging. I’ve been pursuing a minor in Business Process and Analytics, delving deep into the world of data analysis and learning to navigate complex systems like SAP. The coursework has been intense, with projects and tests demanding my attention four days a week. Despite the challenges, I’ve found the curriculum to be incredibly engaging, and the opportunity to work with real-world data has been invaluable for my future career.
Spare Time Adventures: Balancing academics with leisure has been a bit of a juggling act, but I’ve managed to carve out some time for exploration. I’ve had the chance to visit iconic tourist spots, try my hand at pottery, and indulge in culinary delights at high-end restaurants with my partner. These moments of relaxation and adventure have added a wonderful dimension to my study abroad experience, allowing me to immerse myself fully in Dutch culture and lifestyle.
Comparing Study Cultures
One of the most interesting aspects of studying at AUAS is comparing the academic culture here with Finland. While both institutions prioritize research and academic dedication, I’ve noticed some key differences. AUAS is incredibly diverse, with students and faculty from around the world bringing unique perspectives to the classroom. The emphasis on practical, hands-on learning is also notable, with opportunities for students to work within the school and gain valuable experience. However, I’ve found that AUAS could benefit from fostering a stronger sense of teamwork and collaboration among students, something I greatly appreciated during my time at TAMK.
