According to our visiting students, our short term programs have three main aspects: Quality education, lifelong friendships and a cultural experience.
What did you think about the city of Pamplona and our culture?
Pamplona is a beautiful and peaceful city, very different from Shanghai. I love the life here and I still miss it. –Lisa Zhu,Tongji University, China
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Pamplona. It was a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle that I’m used to in Australia (and the heat), and I was pleasantly surprised at how much such a small city had to offer. It was also a highlight for me to learn so much about the rich Spanish culture, which is so diverse to my own. It was warming to see how passionate people were about their cultures and how much they wanted to share with me! – Isobel Kelaher, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
What would you highlight about your experience participating in the Winter Program at the School of Economics?
The winter program at the School of Economics gives me a chance to discuss with people who have different values and perspectives, to share different ideas and then it could help us to build a broader horizon. Since the world is becoming more connected, I think a world-wide horizon is important and useful for us. –Chuan Tai Yuan, Tongji University, China
There are two key aspects of my experience in Pamplona and attending the Winter Program that I would like to highlight. The first of these is the insightful and genuinely interesting Economics seminars that we had the privilege of attending in our final week. Coming from Australia, I was exposed to a number of topics from a European perspective, by European professors, which was incredibly informative and I suppose eye-opening in many ways.
The second and probably best thing about the program for me, was the opportunity to meet and form relationships with so many people from all over the world. I got to live with, attend classes, go out on the weekends and pretty much anything in between, with local students from Spain, the rest of Europe, Latin America and China. This allowed me to have the most incredible time and as a result I now have friends from all over the globe. This is something I never could have imagined beforehand and without a doubt the most rewarding and enjoyable aspect of the experience.– Taylor Guthrie, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
I learned more about European economics and expanded my horizon.The professors are all very nice and knowledgeable. – Lisa Zhu, Tongji University, China
What is the most memorable thing from the University of Navarra that you take home with you?
I really had a great time in Pamplona. The activities the university arranged for us were so good. I still miss the time in Pamplona when I am back to China. I met so many firends from all over the world here. And the farewell lunch was so sweet.I was so glad that I had this opportunity to study and spend some time in Pamplona and University of Navarra. This gave me a lot of good memories and growth.– Lisa Zhu, Tongji University, China
