What do the Erasmus students think about ISSA?: Interview

Hi, everyone! I’m writing this post in English because I found it easier for the people I interviewed to understand as much as it was for them to answer my questions, and because of that their words aren’t changing (maybe if I would have translated them into Spanish some of the meanings would sound different, I want authenticity!)

I wrote to some students in my class who are coming from different countries several questions about our university, the degrees they are studying at home and their opinions about ISSA. I hope everyone finds it interesting and who knows? Maybe you solve some of the doubts you have about studying ISSA or even going abroad on Erasmus!!
