I always had a desire to study abroad. Erasmus offered me to do so and as I wanted to improve my German I choose Austria. Along with the language, I had the opportunity to explore different cultures and meet people from all around the world. Austria has a unique education system where the emphasis is on the application of theoretical knowledge into practice. IMC has 147 partner universities worldwide and the experience of the multicultural atmosphere is unbelievable. Finally, Krems an der Donau is a town located about 40 minutes by train from Vienna.

The mandatory internship gives students a unique experience working in the most well-known and best performing IT companies and gives them an edge over the competition.

My international study experience was very different from studying at home, but different is good! You grow as a person, get to explore new horizons, and see everything in a new perspectives. The best thing about studying abroad are the people you get to meet, new places you get to see and experience, and different cultures – these are what you will remember forever. You learn to adapt to new ways of studying and living, and different kinds of people.

I am very grateful for all amazing opportunities that RIT Croatia has offered my so far. Even in the challenging COVID-19 times, I’ve had great support in achieving my goals, from doing one of my internships in Antalya, Turkey to getting a J1-visa program scholarship for my internship in the US.
RIT is an amazing stepping stone into the world of business because students are being taught about professional work habits and practical experience in innovative and creative ways. The job offers that I received before the end of my studies from three different industries show the scope of the program and the value of the practical knowledge we gain before graduating.

If you are still thinking that college is all about studying unnecessary stuff and attending boring lectures, well, probably, you have not yet experienced RIT. The educational program is designed in such a way that all the students are constantly involved in lectures, different discussions, projects and presentations. Not only does it make the academic journey entertaining, but it is also a great way to connect theory with practice. What I like the most is the openness and genuine interest the faculty have in their students` success.

My whole Erasmus experience was a truly invigorating sequence, for my new life obligations and challenges. My work experience abroad created a new dimension of cultural understanding applied in business and in general. Also, my language skills just blossomed! I would most certainly recommend Erasmus to fellow students who have the opportunity to travel and work, just to expand their mindset and broaden their horizons a bit!

I chose Aachen because I wanted to do my ‘demo’ version of living in Germany and trying to improve my German language skills. During my studies, I filled my time enjoying walking in German woods and I was blessed that my dorm was next to one and I went for a walk there almost every day. Not just that I learned about others, I learned about myself and found a new comfort zone which I probably would never found if I didn’t push myself into doing my semester abroad. The overall experience turned out to be better than I thought it would be, and I thought it would be awesome.

RIT has the amazing offer to study on three continents and get one degree, which drove my decision enroll RIT and I would regret to leave this opportunity behind. Above all I wanted to explore the country and culture of the Middle East. I took exciting courses like Arabic language, East-West Encounters and Islamic Culture just to name a few. Besides my studies, I made many interesting connections and visited a lot of places. The campus offers many extracurricular activities like sports clubs and excursions, what makes it easier to integrate.

While studying at RIT Croatia, I did my second internship in Japan in EY. I did my first internship in a financial consortium, called JIAM, that helps source B2B solutions for Japanese asset managers. I wanted to work in an international corporation and gain experience in areas of interest for my career development. Furthermore, an internship in Japan opens up doors for future employment opportunities especially if you are in a company such as EY, one of the global leaders in accountancy and consultancy.

It's amazing how much study abroad can provide for your personal development, open your mind, help you see things from a completely different perspective, connect you with amazing people and cultures from around the world, help you find your way into education and later careers, change attitudes, embrace change. I was surrounded by a wide variety of people from all over the world, learned a lot about the profession itself, and with the fantastic professors and external lecturers/guest lecturers, I received the knowledge and advice I needed to progress. Countless wonderful things!
