To sum up they are supported whenever needed. Mentor students’ objectives are: to improve the integration of students doing their academic exchange abroad; to internationalize campuses and local student life, while easing interactions, open mindsets and increasing mutual understanding; to strengthen partnerships welcoming international students (universities and associations) and allow them to develop long-lasting relationships between students.

EXCHANGE STUDENTS VOICE

“WONDERFUL PROFESSORS WITH VAST KNOWLEDGE”

The NUM Mongolian Language Program offered me the opportunity to study under wonderful professors who were all extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields and to be able to interact with students from various countries, cultures and walks of life. The program also included a field trip which was a great opportunity to meet and socialize with different people whilst immersing in the Mongolian culture.

Szymon Sztengel /Poland/

“I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE TO MONGOLIANS FOR WELCOMING ME WITH OPEN ARMS”

As the Mongolian classes are divided into levels, I was provided with a suitable class that went with my Mongolian proficiency level which made learning more efficient. In addition, plenty of events were held for the foreign students. For example: International student’s Greeting Day and a 2-day-1night trip to National heritage place Terelj. Thanks to all these events I could make friends from different nationalities and create precious memories. Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude to the Mongolian people who have welcomed us with open arms.

Kim Youngung /South Korea/

“I ADAPTED EASILY AS I HAD A MENTOR STUDENT”

I adapted easily as I had a mentor student whom I could ask and get help whenever I needed. They are all knowledgeable and really passionate and all the other students are also friendly. Furthermore, I think the divided levels of classes are very suitable for foreign students.

Dankook Univesity exchange students /South Korea/

“I AM TRULY THANKFUL FOR THE TIME I HAVE SPENT AT NUM”

I am truly thankful for these months that I could spend at NUM and create good friendships with other students from several countries. I have amazing memories from classes and everyday life. We were able to experience the Mongolian teaching method within the university during which we learned Mongolian at intermediate advanced level.

Reka Horvath /Hungary/

“I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE TO NUM FOR OFFERING ME SUCH OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCE”

Overall my university experience was extremely good. Firstly, I had some trouble understanding the mentality of Mongolians, but with the help of teachers and mentor students my university life was quite comfortable. I would like to express my gratitude to NUM for offering me such opportunities and experience.
