What do international students think of Jönköping University? Meet Katharina Henschel from Germany and read her stories.
Hej! Moin! Salut! Hi! God dag!
I’m Katharina and I was born & raised at the beautiful shore of Northern Germany in between dunes, waves and a fresh sea breeze. Whether it was France, Denmark or Canada, I never really managed to abandon the water. Since August ’18, Lake Vättern is my daily dose of H2O. I currently pursue a Master’s Degree in Global Management at Jönköping International Business School, which belongs to Jönköping University.
If I am not busy studying, you can find my in the nature, taking photos, on the back of a horse, or having a cozy fika – my favorite is definitely “kanelbulle” & Chai Latte!! Oh, and by the way: I love food – but then who doesn’t?!
I absolutely adore Swedes’ sense for coziness and minimalism, their traditions and the country’s breathtaking nature no matter where you go! Sustainability is something I care about and Sweden offers expertise not only in that field, but also in education. Thus, it seemed like a perfect choice to me!
I am incredibly excited to share my honest experiences here, inspire and motivate you guys! Hope you stay tuned on both, our blog and Instagram!
