Dartmouth College, USA. Photographer: Eva Luusi M.-Mølgaard. EXPERIENCES FOR LIFE S TUDENTS AT ILISIMATUSARFIK HAVE MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR TAKING SEMESTERS ABROAD – AND OUR INTERnational office works hard to allow as many student as possible to discover the world. Luckily, many take this opportunity to enjoy a study or work placement programme abroad. Each and every one returns rich with experiences. Of course, they gain valuable academic knowledge, but primarily they grow as a person and as a human being. Ilisimatusarfik also has the privilege of receiving an increasing number of international visiting students from all over the world. This also lends an international touch to our students’ education, and adds a colourful international atmosphere to our campus. Below are three short stories about students studying abroad. The first two are about our own Greenlandic students, and the last one is about a Danish student in Greenland. • How do you feel about the opportunity to study your great passion? • How about getting a personal confidence boost during discussions with like-minded people? • Or how about experiencing the Northern Lights while enjoying delicious food like never before as a vegan? The latter was exactly the experience of Tukumminnguaq N. Olsen, Eva Luusi M.-Mølgaard and Melissa Cherry Villumsen while studying abroad. 54 Shaping the Arctic
