Vicky Maria, Bachelor student in Economics and Business Administration

I'm Vicky Maria Kastora,

I am half Greek half Danish and I come from Kalamata, a small town in the southern part of Greece. I’m currently enrolled in a Bachelor's programme in Economics and Business Administration (BScB) at Aarhus University (Aarhus BSS).

Before enrolling to Aarhus BSS I was a student at the University of Crete, Greece and I was studying in the chemistry department where I got accepted exactly after my upper secondary education exams. After 1 and a half year of my studies I decided to interrupt as I was disappointed of my study choice. Then I took a year off and I found a job.

I was very lucky to be part of the group Hellenic Duty Free Shops as a sales assistant at Crete's international airport. The knowledge and the experiences I gained during working there motivated me to start studying again, this time in the field of Economics.

Since I have been  in Denmark many times and It feels like my second home I decided to start my studies here instead of Greece. Besides the fact that I love Denmark, Danish culture and Danish people another reason to invest my studies here is that Denmark is well known for it's educational system which is ranked among the best in the world.

Aarhus BSS offers high quality education programmes with a great structure in each semester and provides many career prospects in order to boost your future career opportunities.

Until now my experience at Aarhus BSS is fantastic! From the first day I met friendly people willing to help the new students to settle down in the beautiful city of Aarhus and have a good and smooth start with their new student life.

There is no doubt that being a student demands hard work and self discipline and especially for the students who come from abroad. Living in a new place and far away from home can be very challenging. From my experience, I advise you to get out of your comfort zone, try something new and challenge yourself. You will gain a lot of experience and you will realize that you are stronger and more capable than you think you are!
