“My Semester in Finland” – José Serrano Marchán

Jose Serrano_Haaga Helia_Finland_Spring 2014_FlagMy study abroad experience in Helsinki was definitively the best experience in my life, so far.  Finland has an interesting culture where people respect one another and individual independence is key. It is a society that lives in peace and individual possessions are respected.  Education is a very important part of the culture. Individuality and personal space are appreciated and students are allowed more freedom.

During my semester in Finland, I met wonderful people. I can now say that I have colleagues and family around the world.  I got to know and spend time with people from many cultures and had the opportunity to travel to places I never imagined I would visit, like Estonia, Switzerland and Russia.

I encourage students to take advantage of their time in university and not to miss the opportunity to study abroad. It is the best experience you will ever live!
