At which university did you spend your semester abroad?
In January 2022, my journey took me to Volda, Norway. Here I studied for a semester at the partner university HiVolda as part of my bachelor's degree in journalism and corporate communication.
Unlike in Berlin, the courses in Norway have more ECTS credit points and are assessed with 15 instead of 5 ECTS per module. Thus, instead of six courses, I "only" took two. Here I chose the bachelor course "Photo for Media" and the bachelor and master course "Web Documentary". Both courses were very practice-oriented and took place 1-2x per week.

How did you like it? Would you recommend it to other HMKW students?
My time in Volda was and remains simply unforgettable - more than words can say.
I always had the dream to travel to Norway. All the pictures of the incredibly breathtaking nature, the happy people and especially the long winters, the northern lights and the bright summers, totally appealed to me. I shouldn't be disappointed, because all these dreams became reality thanks to the Erasmus program.
I could write a lot here about how unbelievably much I enjoyed Volda, but that would not do justice to my feelings about this place and this time. Volda is a place that you have to experience, whose magic you should feel and of whose beauty you should let yourself be enchanted.
