My name is Yukan, and I'm currently enrolled in the OAS programme at Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand.
My stay in New Zealand has been both incredibly enjoyable and difficult at the same time. The opportunity to meet with individuals from diverse ethnic origins is one of Wellington's biggest attractions, a city with a vibrant creative culture.
Finding a new apartment, joining a new football team, and most importantly, getting to know now people and socialising with them are things I would never have had the opportunity to experience back in Japan.
大自然の中で育まれる多様な学生との関わり/Experiences with diverse peers in the great nature
During my study abroad in PEI, I found there to be mainly two attractive points.
The first one was beautiful nature. Because PEI is a small island surrounded by the sea, I could see beautiful sunsets and sunrises and eat delicious local food.
The second one is the diversity of the university. Students from all around the world come to PEI to study many kinds of subjects, I could talk with people who have diverse backgrounds on all kinds of subjects that we were all majoring in. I think studying abroad offers a great opportunity for students to widen their perspective on their major and more.
