I did an exchange in Malmo, Sweden, studying Interactive Design. If you are on the fence about studying abroad, as I was prior to my exchange, my only advice would be to just do it!
I was at a point in my undergraduate career where I was getting overwhelmed and exhausted by school but going on exchange was such a great way to take a break for my ordinary life as well as just focus on myself, while still completing my mandatory SFU classes!
Now, returning back to class, I feel like I have an advantage over my fellow classmates as I was able to learn about design in a different perspective and adapt to new environments.
