Tianjie - 2019

I decided to take this short term exchange for many reasons. Most importantly, I wanted to get credits from it and develop my employability. Besides, I really wanted to travel at the same time to relax from a full semester workload.

Nanyang Technological University ranks top 10 in the world and its course Cyber Security offered in July is what I was really interested in. And the airline tickets from Singapore to anywhere in Asia is super cheap, so I can jump on board every weekend to travel.

Xinyue - 2018

In the programme, I made a lot of friends in the same classes and NTU's activities. It is really good to meet different people from different countries and backgrounds. The courses I chose made me pay more attention to details in life and discover the wonderful things by myself.
