Crossing Borders 2023 - a great success

The sun was shining brightly for the national and international students that presented their home and host universities to their fellow students on June 14th at HKA campus. Questions about where to go, what to expect, how to apply and why this or that university or country is an amazing destination for one or more semesters abroad could be heard frequently. People where chatting intensely and the two hours of the event passed in no time. When the Crossing Borders 2023 came to a close, some peole where already asking for a next time.

Anyway, this time would not have been half as special without the traditional Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony offered by exchange-student Tihitina, some Brazilian Caipirinha from the Brazilian exchange students and tasty German “Bratwurst” for lunch. For the first time this year, and hopefully always in the future, HKAs partner universities of the INGENIUM European University alliance, were represented by students and professors from each institution.

We are already looking much forward to next years edition of the Crossing Borders international fair and hope that students from our partner universities will be participating at least as numerously as they did this year. We also thank all the people, that made this year's edition so special.
