Studying abroad taught me how to communicate with people from different cultures – an ability very important for the current business world which has gone absolutely international. I dare to advise you to find a university which encourages your personal development and supports you in all of your initiatives because I believe in that one cannot know how far one can fly if one never opens their wings.
Where is the position of comparative literature today? Comparatists might be the only agents in the society today whose focus would not necessarily orbit around profit. It’s the profession which aims to truly embrace simply what is humane. Profound interest and knowledge in books, cultures, tremendous curiosity to all social phenomena – those would be just few of the characteristics that could pin down the comparatists.
I am Eni Mazniku, a law student from Albania. Actually, I am enrolled in the Public Law master program, at Faculty of Law at the University of Tirana.

One of them, on which I want to focus in this article, is the internship at Council of Europe Office in Tirana.
It all started from Mladiinfo’s Facebook page, where I noticed a call for a volunteer in Finland, in the pearl of the North, Helsinki.

Of course in this process both parties learn a lot not only about the culture of the new country they are exploring, but also about their own cultures. I find this notion very exciting and innovative – this is why my expectations are so high.

“AAU is a truly unique university.I like how international it is and how it enables students to get to know other cultures more closely and learn to be more open and tolerant. This is the case especially with Central and East European Studies, a program which concentrates on the political, economic and socio-cultural role of Central and Eastern Europe. It allows students to learn how the peoples of the region have affected one another in the past, and also to learn more about that relationship in the present.” Ekaterina Chernysheva (Russia)

In Romania, it is common to pay the driver for taking you from one place to another. During the communism regime, hitchhiking was a usual practice because there were fewer cars and not so many things to spend money on. So hitchhiking was pretty common. People knew where to stand, and card just picked them up. With capitalism, one may think that this is not a very decent way of getting by. So if you don’t have a car, there is always the possibility of train or coach, you might be told.
