"Before coming to China I had no clue about the Chinese way of life, culture and society. I expected to get to know a very diverse country and in fact it was much more than I thought. The stay in China has made me more flexible and cosmopolitan, as I’m able to adapt to Chinese lifestyle. I discovered Chinese language, values and manners, which enables me to build an opinion and treat eastern culture with respect. Also inter-cultural experiences with students from all over the world have been a great enrichment. It was great to do group work with all the different students. Working on a project together we have improved our English language skills, presentation skills and team-work. The course also gave me a new perspective to deal with design work, as I got to know different work methods and of course lots of inspiration to take back home. All in all it was a great program and I feel very lucky to have been invited to study abroad."
