My home away from home is Paris. As an American, I always daydreamed about traveling to Europe, and Paris was at the top of my bucket list. I wanted to see The Eiffel Tower sparkle at the top of every hour (I know, how American of me), eat croissants and drink espresso outside of a small French café, walk the rainy streets of Paris with my Nikon in hand and bring home trinkets from the flea markets.

A majority of our over 50 currently enrolled students come from Asia and Latin America. Beside German students, our current Europeans come mainly from Central and Eastern Europe. Perhaps a bit exceptionally, at the moment we don’t have anyone from Spain enrolled in the programme. As a small degree programme, our marketing reach is quite limited. Nevertheless, those Spaniards among our alumni are on very successful career tracks!
