Faye Gibbon discusses her experience of studying design abroad.

After reading Dazed’s article about Germany scrapping tuition fees, a sense of nostalgia came creeping over to me. I had the wonderful opportunity to study in Germany for a year – and hopefully by the end of this article, I’ll have convinced you to study abroad too.

Studying Communication Design at Hochschule RheinMain in Wiesbaden as part of my ERASMUS exchange was definitely different to the Loughborough bubble I was used to. Initially I chose to undertake an exchange for the reason that most people do it – to experience a different culture and venture outside my comfort zone.
