Hello! I am David Johansson, a senior Business major studying in
My first day in
At the first day of school, I met many cool people. I had no idea that so many other exchange students lived in the same apartment building that I live in! The first day of school was quite interesting because many of the other exchange students were just as lost around town as I was. But the IC (International Connection) team welcomed us with open arms. The team is comprised of Audencia students who greet us on our first day and are a resource for us to use if we need help with something at school. They showed us around the school and also let us know about the school parties.
The schools here are very unique. The schedule is much different than UW; instead of choosing the classes based upon the time schedule, you choose a major and are assigned the appropriate classes, called “modules.” Classes are divided into three hour sessions, usually twice a day, for most of the week, except Thursdays. Schedules are updated every week or two—most of the time you do not know what classes you will have two weeks later. It is an interesting schedule, something I definitely had to get used to.
