Jeg ledte efter et freemover-ophold i udlandet gennem Uniclub, og jeg fik noget af den bedste service, jeg har oplevet. De tog sig af alt det praktiske, og fjernede næsten alt det besvær med arbejde, det kan være at ansøge om et udvekslingsophold.

Jeg skal til Australien i et semester, og før jeg fandt Uniclub, virkede hele ansøgningsprocessen umulig. De her gutter er simpelthen de bedste. De har det rigtige svar på bogstaveligt talt ethvert spørgsmål, du har. De er hjælpsomme, hurtige, med fremragende service

Uniclub og Deni Isic, få min absolut varmeste anbefaling! Jeg havde en drøm om at komme til Japan, der virkede fjern og uhåndterlig, men Deni og resten af Uniclub har hjulpet mig gennem hele processen.

Jeg er lige vendt tilbage fra mit udvekslingsophold i Irland, hvilket ikke ville have været muligt, hvis det ikke var for Uniclub. Hvis du leder efter en udveksling som freemover, så kan jeg ikke anbefale UniClub nok!
