Experience what it's like to be an international student for a day and join us on an exciting trip from Rotterdam to Bochum! As part of our commitment to connecting with other UNIC universities and offering diverse opportunities to go abroad for our students, we're thrilled to offer this fully funded excursion to Germany.

About UNIC Experience

The UNIC Experience is a day trip offered to a large group of students, visiting one of our closest partner cities such as Li├Ęge or Bochum. During this excursion, students will experience how universities in other countries function, experience a different style of education and teaching, learn about topics from another perspective, and they will strengthen their international network. Additionally, they will learn about topics relevant to UNIC's identity and compare student life in the visited city with that in Rotterdam.
