"Knowing who you are as a person and what you want to do is vital at this stage of life", says Robert. Returning to his home country, the first hurdle for Robert was settling into the Oslo way of life. The students attending University in Norway tend to be older, already in their twenties and this has meant making friends has been more challenging. Robert feels the last six months has really developed his character, and that it is important to give yourself time to discover and accept who you are, to feel happy with yourself and where you are going.

Robert feels it has been a good choice to go to Norway. The style of study is very different, because courses are criteria based. He says it is a safe environment to be living in and he has also been free to follow his passion for music.
