Best experience ever!

My experience in Shanghai was by far the best in my life, Asia Exchange made it really easy for me to enjoy this adventure without any worries in terms of my academic life. The staff helped me efficiently in every step of the process, they answered all my questions in time and guided me throughout my entire application procedure.

Shanghai is an amazing city that has a lot of things to offer, this opportunity allowed me to experience a completely different culture as well as it gave me the chance to travel and connect with people I never expected to meet. This trip changed my life and gave me skills I know will be useful for my academic future.

A lifetime experience you should definitely try

Since my university did not provide much help for studying outside of europe, I reached for different options and discovered AsiaExchange. I decided to spend a semester in Shanghai in 2017, which was definitely one of the best decisions during my studies. There is so much to do, see and learn, the food is great and culture just so different.

Altough their study program did not really fit my curriculum (engineering), this was a great opportunity to learn about culture, economics and various soft-skills. The studies did not take too much time, so some was left to explore Shanghai itself and dive into local culture. Also traveling to other parts of China by High-Speed Train was really interesting and much fun.

I returned with a lot of new friends, incredible experiences and the urge to leave for another adventure soon.
