“Placement in Germany was the best choice so far I have taken as a student in University of Nicosia. Beside the risks taken of travelling alone in a country that I could barely speak the language, I took the chance to try and work there. Not only I have my German language skills improved, but I have been asked for an offer for a longer period to stay here and work by the Insurance Company named “Signal Iduna Gmbh”, the 8th most popular insurance company in Germany.

I feel lucky that I have chosen Hannover, the city where I accommodate, and live here. It has been voted as the greenest and most harmonious city among the other gigantic cities of Germany. Besides here, they speak the authentic German language, which is vital for every foreigner to know.

I really recommend students of Business & Administration to experience the Placement Program authorized by the European Union and the University of Nicosia. You can see how other country business environments really work and corporate, other organizational cultures and techniques. A huge step and experience for my academic and working life.”
