From Saint Mary’s University Canada | studying at AUAS Faculty of Business and Economics

Hi, I’m Erin! I’m 22 years old, from Canada, and I have been travelling as long as I can remember. The first time I came to Europe I spent 3 months in Milan, and about 1 month in Paris. I absolutely love learning, so any experience that will teach me something new, I’m excited about! The first exchange I ever did was in high school, I took biology in Ecuador and the Galapagos islands. This summer I was on an exchange in Tokyo, Japan before coming to Amsterdam to study at AUAS, it was incredibly different from anything I had ever been used to. I talk to many friends about their exchanges and the locations they’ve been and what they liked and didn’t like so much, so if you have any questions about exchanges I can do my very best to help you.

There is one mandatory question to answer in this section: Why did you decide to study at AUAS for your exchange?

I chose to study at AUAS because I had heard for so long about how beautiful Amsterdam was, and I wanted to experience it for myself. I had lived in other countries in Europe for brief periods but I had never been to the Netherlands. I figured it would be different from what I’m used to.
