Dream destinations – University cities Europe

Kbh-universitet.jpg

Hello, world.
There are only 3 years left before I hopefully am going to university. The fact is that In Denmark there are only 4 places for me to study medicine. Because of that, I’m thinking about studying abroad in the future. I had been doing some researching and here are some really amazing university cities.  

1. Copenhagen, Denmark. 
Currently, my first priority is the Copenhagen University. The “hardest” University to be accepted by. Copenhagen has so many different possibilities for students. The best part is in Denmark you get paid for studying. Each and every month you get about 870$. It’s not a lot, but your education is free too. Yes thanks to the very high tax about 40%, actually I think it’s the highest tax in the world. Correct me if I’m wrong. Another good thing about Denmark is that it’s a very modern, nice, hardworking and smart place. Good country to study in just saying.
The universities:

  • Copenhagen University.
  • DTU where my brother is studying.
  • Copenhagen Business School.
  • IT University of Copenhagen.

2. London, The United Kingdom.
London is one of my another priority. Mostly because there are so many possibilities. The another good thing is that the United Kingdom and Denmark have a student agreement contract. Meaning that every year the need to accept a number of students from Denmark. So it’s very easy for a Danish citizen to study in London. I mean one of my dream universities is Oxford University, but it’s very close to London too. The fact is that in 2019 or 2020 The United Kingdom is officially out of EU, so I don’t know about maybe changing the agreement. Let’s hope they don’t
The top 10(there were so many) universities: 

  • University College London.
  • Imperial College London.
  • Kings College London.
  • London School of Economics and Political Science.
  • Queen Mary.
  • Royal Holloway.
  • School of Oriental and African Studies.
  • Birkbeck College.
  • City, University of London.
  • Brunel University.

3. Paris, France.
Why Paris, why not. If you are going to study hard, then do it in the most romantic city in the world. I had read so many books of living the student life in Paris, guess what all of them are fantastic. Studying in a café close to the Eiffel Tower and enjoying a sunny day in Paris’ many parks. I might have a romantic view of living in Paris, but don’t judge me, who hasn’t? I strongly want to study in Paris and my desire has just grown more by now.
The top 10(there were so many) universities: 

  • École Normale Superieure.
  • École Polytechnique.
  • Université Pierre Marie Curie.
  • Sciences Pro Paris.
  • Université Paris-Sud.
  • Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
  • École Des Pont ParisTech.
  • Université Paris-Sorbonne.
  • Université Paris Diderot.
  • Université Parid Dauphine.

4. Barcelona, Spain.
Barcelona had been on my travel list for so long. I had to beg my parents for going there since forever and maybe we are going there next summer. Honestly, I don’t so much about the universities, but I read a lot of articles about it being a good city to study. I mean just the weather is enough for me to move over there. So if anything goes wrong, why not spend time in the city of football.
The top 5 universities: 

  • University of Barcelona.
  • Autonomous University of Barcelona.
  • University Pompeu Fabra.
  • Polytechnic University of Catalunya.
  • University Ramon Llul.

5. Vienna, Austria. 

Austria is probably one of the most beautiful countries in Europe in my opinion. So studying in paradise is totally on my bucket list. Actually, Vienna is the number 16 best city to study in if you are asking Topuniversities.com.
The top 5 Universities. 

  • University of Vienna.
  • Vienna University of Technology.
  • Universität of Innsbruck.
  • Karl-Franzens-Univerität Graz.

I hope you guys like it and see you next time. Comment down below where you want to study.

House renovation – part 1

Hello, world
Sorry I hadn’t posted for while. My family and I had been busy working on the house. I had started at school again and there is just so many things going. But that’s not a good enough and I will try to post more. Here is an update of our house.

So we had been building our house for a month by now. The reason why there is only one bedroom is because the other rooms is suppose to be built later hopefully.

Starting in a Gymnasium – Danish High School

Here are some pictures of my school. 

Hello, world.
Today was my first day in school and it was so good. I’m starting in a new place where I don’t know anyone. So a Danish Gymnasium is like a High School just a little bit different. After 9th grade, you are officially done with public school. So now is your turn to go on a Gymnasium.
The school year starts in early August and ends at the end of June. In Denmark, there is a lot of Christian holidays.

Here is an example of the school year.

2017
School begins 7 August 2017

Fall break: 16-22 Oktober

Christmas break: 20 December – 2 January

2018

Winter break: 12-18 February

Easter break: 26 Marts – 2 April

Store bededag: 27 April

Kr.Himmelfartsferie: 10-13 Maj

Pentecost: 20-21 May

Here is my schedule for the first semester.

The reason why I have so many sciences subjects is that I’m in a Gymnasium specialized for Technology. So most of the students either love science or want to become something in for science.
As you can see the day start at 8 am to about 3 pm every day. There are some days where the teacher might be sick if that happens school ends earlier.

My first day.
The school started at 10 am Monday morning. The first thing that happened was the introduction speech by the inspector. After that our contact teacher showed us our main classroom. It was the first time I saw my class. In Denmark, you only have one class to every subject. There were 8 girls and 22 boys. Tomorrow we are going to camping with our school. Imagine 360 students camping. It’s going to be a chaos.
For the rest of the day, we planned what to eat at the camping. We are going to camping for 2 nights.

So for now, it was it and I hope you enjoy it.

Back to School – Checklist​

Skærmbillede 2017-08-02 kl. 16.04.25.png

Hello, world.
There is officially only 4 days left before my school starts. That means a lot of mental panic and excitement. Personally, I love buying school supplies, but this year I kind of lost my excitement for school supplies. I’m starting in the Danish gymnasium which is different from what I had tried before. So I’m really scared but at the same time excited. I’ll promise to update about my school journey. But for now, I’ll show you my back to school checklist. Here we go.

  1. Buy a pencil case (this one most be more adult like)
  2. Buy a calendar and add the important dates (like exams, special events or anything like that)
  3. Mental preparing for school starting.
  4. Wash and prepare my school bag.
  5. Get back to school sleeping routine.
  6. Try to learn where my class is located (in Denmark you usually only have one main classroom)
  7. Update my bus card for the school season (that is really pricey cost about 58$ each month)
  8.  Pick an outfit for the first day (let’s be honest after the first day you don’t care about outfits anymore)
  9. Prepare the summer anecdotes (not that’s anything special to tell)
  10. Clean my computer and delete my old stuff in it (I have a lot of not important files)
  11. Find my ear phones and actually remember to take them to school (I’m the only one who forgets them every time)
  12. Set realistic goals for the year.
  13. Try to be open minded as possible (I mean try to find some really nice friends)
  14. Camping equipment (guess who is going to spend the first week of school camping)
  15. Clean my sneakers (I don’t know about you but clean sneaker is a clean beginning)
  16. Make a study playlist on Spotify (a playlist that I don’t get distracted by while making homework)
  17. Give a good first impression to the teachers and students.
  18. Make an emergency kit with everything needed in (I’m a girl everything can happen)
  19. Clean and prepare my bike (if I miss the bus)
  20. Remember to enjoy the last free days of the summer.

I hope you liked. Write a comment down below when you are starting school this year.
