SHARING FROM STUDENTS
I have a lot of memorable moments at UEH-ISB. Everything is different, from the campus, the way of teaching to make new friends, all is interesting.
The difference here is, we are assigned more homework and do more teamwork compared to studying in Germany. In Germany, you just need to go to school, listen to lectures and finish the final exam. But at UEH-ISB, we are offered a dynamic and interactive learning environment, we have a lot of things to learn and experience throughout the course.
Ines Joelle, Exchange Student from Germany
The method of study at UEH-ISB is clearly oriented. I am really excited that UEH-ISB offers a wide range of majors – not the same as what my school has, just specializes in tourism.
In addition, I have great opportunities to get acquainted and study in a diverse environment with many new friends. This made me enlarge my knowledge and vision into many other useful aspects.
