I loved my stay in Ecuador and at the UIDE. In the beginning it was hard because not many people speak a lot of English but that only helped to improve my Spanish.

The people at the UIDE are very friendly and welcoming. The relationship between professors and students is very close and with a lot of interaction during classes.

The teachers support you a lot and always try to help you, and the classes they teach are very interesting because of their experiences and practical examples and projects.

The time goes by so fast, and I had many wonderful experiences and made new friends. I will never forget my time here and would choose the UIDE again any time.

My time at UIDE was amazing. I took some courses in Spanish and others in English.

Initially I was not sure if my Spanish would be good enough, but thanks to the small class sizes and teachers that took extra time to make sure I would be able to follow the courses, the Spanish classes turned out to be the most enriching.

During my time in Ecuador, I also worked on a chocolate business idea.

Upon my return to Austria I launched an artisanal chocolate business, working with Ecuadorian Cacao beans.

I took advantage of the different extracurricular activities offered at UIDE and learned how to ride horses and dance salsa! I also traveled to the Galapagos Islands and Montañita during my exchange. Ecuador is an incredible country with endless wildlife and amazing landscapes. I hope to go back soon.

“Starting with my first week in Ecuador, I felt like part of a family. Everyone was really nice and helpful, and I’ve made a lot of Ecuadorian friends who I hope to see again soon. From my point of view, I chose the best university for an exchange: UIDE’s academic quality is really good, the campus is beautiful and there are a lot of sports options. I was able to travel to some incredible places in Ecuador, I never felt in danger anywhere in the country, and I never felt alone.”

“Ecuador and UIDE were a surprise for me; I found myself surrounded by really nice people in a wonderful country. The best times I had were the trips I was able to take with other exchange students and the International Student Club. My biggest challenge was improving my Spanish, and in addition to that I was able to learn about Ecuadorian culture, traditions and different worldviews.”

“I will never forget my trip to Puerto Lopez with 15 other foreign and Ecuadorian students; we took a bus and went to Los Frailes beach and the Isla de la Plata. Doing this exchange has made me even more independent and has given me more insight. I learned a lot about Ecuadorian culture, which will help me in my professional life because I’m specializing in trade between Latin America and Europe. I’m going to miss everyone at UIDE, be they classmates or staff and everyone who was part of my exchange, changing me and my way of seeing things.”
