Katrine Mortensen

History of Art MA

“One of the highlights has definitely been experiencing another way of studying. There are similarities to Denmark, but a lot of things are different as well. I’ve truly enjoyed meeting everyone, from my fellow students to professors and lecturers. They are all a major part of my success and my motivation to improve each day.”
