One such person who has already joined the program is master’s student Hannah Dubbels from the University of Bremen. The psychology student has taken courses at the University of Eastern Finland through YUFE – only online so far because of the pandemic. “It was great to have different online learning experiences there,” she says. YUFE’s study abroad opportunities really appealed to her. “I did my bachelor’s degree at a British distance learning university. The international side of things was so enjoyable.” Of course, Hannah still hopes to study on site at YUFE universities and that should finally be possible in the next round of the YUFE program. Jelle Schuermans from the University of Antwerp (Belgium) got to know the University of Bremen through YUFE and signed up for a language course, among other things. “Through YUFE, I can improve my English and German while getting to know other European universities and students,” he says. “It’s great, the network here offers a lot.”
Who are the 10 YUFE universities and what do they offer?
