In Lavinia's own words:

My name is Lavinia,

I am from Maceió, Brazil. I’m currently enrolled in the Bachelor's programme in Economics and Business Administration at Aarhus BSS.

The first time I came to Denmark was as an exchange student in high school. By then, I was already overwhelmed by the Danish culture and society. I knew this could be an ideal place to study.


Before enrolling to Aarhus BSS, I studied one-year higher education at the Brazilian university, UFCG. Although Aarhus is completely different from what I was used to, I do not regret my decision of coming to Denmark. Aarhus BSS offers high quality education, with the great structure and many opportunities to boost my career. In addition, I feel that my programme lives up to my expectations as I get an international perspective of the different aspects of business while constantly putting theory into practice. Not to mention, living in Aarhus is a plus. It has a huge international community that provides you with a great network and friendly environment. There are always nice places and events to spend your free time on.


From my own experience, I must say it requires a lot of focus and hard-work. Especially, when you are far away from home it can be challenging, but I assure you, it is completely worth it.

My advice for you is: do not be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and embrace the challenges.

You will see how rewarding it can be.
