"During the exchange semester at Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), it was delightful and delighted. I have never been to Switzerland before. It was my first time to visit a European country. I have seen some tourist spots, like Zurich’s Lindenhof, Zurich’s Limmat, Luzern, and Mount Pilatus.

ZHAW has organized many events for the incoming exchange students. For example, an orientation day, campus tour, and a welcome party. At the events, I met many students from different countries, such as Korea, Thailand, and the United States. It was fun to chat with students from diverse backgrounds and cultures. They were very nice to share their life at home university and their family as well.

During my study at ZHAW, I learned a lot of in-depth professional aviation knowledge, which helped improve my career prospects. The four subjects I took were practical and exciting. The teachers always interacted with the students, and the lessons were funny. Besides, my classmates were very kind as to give me a hand if I face any problems. They sometimes brought me to excellent restaurants, and I enjoyed the time with them.

Winterthur is a town where I study in Switzerland. It is a clean, calm, and beautiful town. Looking at the scenery from my hostel’s balcony would make me smile. The pace in Winterthur is very relaxing and slow. Therefore, I enjoy the lifestyle in my town.

The exchange semester is a memorable experience in my life so far. Traveling around Switzerland, I found that Switzerland has many beautiful views and buildings. You can broaden your horizons while traveling. It will give you an unforgettable experience in your university life. Thank you very much for giving me such a great opportunity to enjoy this study abroad period.

I am looking forward to visiting Switzerland in the coming year again."
