Campus life in Europe
Europe provides an international, exhilarating experience for students and for a student the opportunity to meet students from all over the world is one of the most exciting factors about studying in Europe. In some cases nearly 90 countries are represented on campus and each student brings a unique contribution to campus life both academically and culturally. Student unions based on geography, religion provide opportunities to belong to niche groups within the overall structure. Europe campuses also have international officers to provide support for international students and it is their job to advise and help students in every possible way. European institutions have orientation programmes for international students at the beginning of the academic session to orient them on life on the campus, course timings, life in Europe, food, extra curricular activities etc. This advice and involvement does not end there but continues throughout the course as, qualified counselors and advisors continue to take active roles in each student’s life on campus. This personal touch makes studying in Europe exciting and exhilarating for international students.
