After three months of living here I decided it's about that time I begin reflecting on my experience at the Nanyang Technological University, in the vibrant city-state of Singapore. My fellow classmate who's studying at NUS, a sister university in Singapore, covered the basics of food culture and academic life in the city…errr….country, but a bonus of studying at Nanyang Tech is that the food is cheaper! NTU also boasts a gazillion choices so there's always something here to eat for everyone - and if you're a midnight-snacker, there is a 24/7 hawker center less than a 10 minute walk from campus.
My name is Josh Cobaschi and I am a third year student currently on my study abroad term at Tilburg University in the Netherlands. I have been here for two months now and they have been some of the most incredible months of my life. At first it was a little intimidating feeling like I had just been immersed into a completely new world. And being that it is my first time in Europe it look a little getting adjusted to, but I have loved every moment of it. This post will just give you a little insight into some of the things I have been up to in the recently.
After months on end of waiting and the million and one papers that were processed, I have finally made it to Singapore. The fear of being deported for not having the right form or fee, has now been put at ease – or at least I hope.
It's hard to believe that two months have passed by so quickly; thankfully I have learned a few tricks here and there to ease that transition from country to country.
I've talked to a few of you, and I know some other GBDA students are considering NUS for their study abroad term. I thought it'd be fun to share with you my NUS-essities (necessities).
