I want to write songs and I always get really inspired by nature

The teachers are great! They are all professional musicians which makes it super interesting to work with them.

Jente

from The Netherlands

Tell us about you.

My name is Jente, I am 21 years old and I am from Haarlem, The Netherlands. I study pop music.

Why did you choose Norway?

I love Scandinavia! I want to write songs and I always get really inspired by nature. This university is surrounded by nature so that is perfect!

How was your arrival?

I arrived late at night and took the bus to the city centre where the ESN board picked us up. They brought me to my student housing. The board members are super helpful and lovely!

How is the quality of education of the University?

I have less class than in The Netherlands so that took a while to get used to. The teachers are great! They are all professional musicians which makes it super interesting to work with them. 

What's your favourite place in Kristiansand and why?

My favourite place here in Kristiansand is Roligheden! It’s a lovely place by the sea where you can walk and look at the beautiful view. I always walk out there when the sun is shining!

Have you planned any trips?

I have not yet planned a trip. We might want to go to Iceland to see the northern lights! Last summer I went to Oslo and Stavanger and I really loved those cities so I might get back there in spring.
