In the second post of this week’s theme, we follow up on the experiences of two RUG students studying abroad. In their last post, Julian and Pia wrote about their motivation for choosing their host universities as well as the selection procedure and preparation. Now, read about their first impressions of their new environments. Have their expectations been met?
To open the second round of the exchange week here on Mindwise, we asked Stacey Donofrio, who coordinates student exchanges for the psychology department, to tell us about her personal view on studying abroad. In addition, she answered a choice of frequently asked questions regarding the exchange procedure.
We continue this week’s theme of sharing the experiences of students who have been (or still are!) on exchange. Find out what a student from Mexico thought about her studies in the Psychology Department at the RUG and where in the world Groningen students went on exchange this year.

Every quarter, we share articles published in the BCN Neswletter and we are happy today to share a story written by Elouise Koops on the Avril McDonald Memorial Fund that is organised by Rosalind Frankling fellows from the RUG.

Being in the Honours College has enriched my understanding of research in psychology in a tremendous way. Here, I can look back at a wonderful experience and look forward to more fruitful research experiences.
