S h e w a s a student at the Faculty of Business and Accounting (FBA). Befo re l eaving the Unive r sit y, M s. Sabine sha red her ex pe r iences at I U KL and Malaysia i n genera l. I: How was you r t i me he re a t IUKL? S: I have made many friends from different countries. I did face difficulties in communicating with others a s e a c h o f u s c o m e s f ro m a d i f f e re n t c u l t u re. Malaysians tend to be indirect when they wish to deliver a message but in our culture, it is the opposite s o s o m e ti m e s t h e re wi l l b e m i s c o m m u n i c a ti o n between us. I: Why d id you choose IUKL to do the student mobility p rog ramme? S : W h e n I w a s b r o w s i n g t h e n e t t o f i n d a n institution to do this programme, I chose Malaysia because of the peaceful atmosphere and I felt that I can gain cultural opportunities as well. I: Wha t was you r favou r i te class to a t tend? Do you have a favou r i te lectu re r? S: I enjoyed the International Relations class as I had the opportunity to learn more about the world. It was a very interesting class taught by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Faridah, who is also my favourite lecturer. I: Could you sha re mo re wi th us abou t you r jou rney? S: When I started the student mobility programme a t I U K L, I h a d a b i t o f a c u l t u re s h o c k. S o m e lecturers have a strong Malay accent when they speak in English which makes it difficult for me to understand the lecture at times but I managed to adapt after a month. I: What is the most impor tant thing for you to represent you r countr y when you a re abroad? S: If you plan to go abroad, we have to keep an open mind so we will be ready to accept new things and be more optimistic towards new ideas. When we are open minded, we will have a better understanding o f l i f e b e c a u s e we wi l l vi e w i t a s a jo u rn e y a n d learning experience. I: Is you r countr y faci ng any cr i sis a t the moment? S: Yes, we are actually facing economic crisis. Many people are laid off in Netherlands. Here, Malaysians go out for dinner and shop almost every day. In Netherlands, all shops are closed at 6pm. Food and clothing are more expensive there. When we do go o u t f o r d i n n e r, i t wi l l u s u a l l y b e f o r a s pe c i a l occasion. I: How has you r stay i n Ma laysia been so fa r? S: It has been a great time. I learned a lot about the various cultures in Malaysia. This country is rich with culture and I really respect that. You don t see this in many other countries. I: Wha t do you plan to do when you retu rn to you r homeland? S: After this semester (October 2013), I will be doing my internship at Madrid, Spain for five months and I will return to my university to complete my final semester. I: Wha t wi l l be the one memo r y i n IUKL tha t you wi l l neve r forget? S: It s hard for me to pinpoint one as I have so many memories here but I will never forget the farewell party that Dr. Faridah organized for me for the International Relations class. In Netherlands, the students are not very close with the lecturers but here in Malaysia, it is the opposite. For example, the s tu d e n ts s h a re s to ri e s a b o u t th e i r va c a ti o n s o r problems to the lecturers. The lecturers here are caring and are always willing to lend an ear. I: Would you come to Ma laysia again i f you have anothe r chance? S: I would love to if I get financial aid (laughs) * Fo r fu r ther i nfo r mat i on on the s tudent Mob i l it y P rog ra m me, p l ease contact the V i ce - P res i dent (Academic a nd Qua l it y As surance) of IUKL. 13
