Student testimonial

Kuba from Poland studied Accounting and Finance

How are the teachers/lectures? The study environment?
They are very, very friendly and always willing to help. You can talk with them about everything in a very relaxed manner, also about topics not strictly connected to studies. Some of my teachers are not that older than me, especially ones from my tutorial classes. Thanks to this the study environment is chilled and without any pressure.

What do you like to do as a student when you are not in class?
Being honest I don’t have a lot of free time as I took extra elective courses, but grabbing a beer or two with friends is always a good idea.

What is your best experience so far?
Meeting all the great people here in Odense. I am pretty much convinced that the friendships I established here will last for a long time.
