What did the participants say?

"I came to the Employability CAMP, because I wanted to have a great start to University. I wanted to make some friends, learn Danish and get to know Aalborg better.

I am really happy about my decision, and I will definitely recommend to join the Employability CAMP. Everybody should come to this camp! If you are a new student at UCN, this Employability CAMP is the first thing you need to do. Just sign in and go to the CAMP next year. From the first day, it was awesome.

"It was a wonderful two-week period of time. We got to taste a lot of traditional Danish food, and we also went to visit different places in the Northern part of Denmark. We saw beautiful sceneries and wonderful places.

I would definitely recommend participating in the CAMP, because it's a really good way to make friendships before the start of term and to get to know your way around campus. It is a great way to make new friendships and explore Denmark."
