Exchange Student From Singapore

Hello all!

I'm an soon-to-be exchange student from Singapore. I'll be attending ZHAW School of Management and Law in Winterthur from August to December!

I am studying accountancy in Singapore and I picked ZHAW because it was one of the few institutes that matched the courses I wanted to clear. Besides, I always wanted to visit Europe and it looks like Switzerland's going to be a good place to start!

Looking forward to learn more about the culture in Switzerland (that's the whole point of exchange) and to explore her and neighbouring countries!

I found this forum through Reddit (r/switzerland).

Re: Exchange Student From Singapore

Welcome to the forum, and an early welcome to Winterthur

Should you need any info regarding the city feel free to contact me. I've been living here for a while and guess I could help you a bit. (Especially in case you feel a burning desire to have a beer and don't know to find it.. I would personally lead you to the place and join you for a drink )

Hi Leelp,

I am from Singapore too. Currently here as a Summer law associate with a human rights organisation. But will be heading back to Singapore in September.

Hello chosenjade, it'd be great if you could share the location. I've lived in Zürich for a year, and still not found a place that serves up authentic S.E.A. food...

Just sharing information here.

The restaurant was previously mentioned in a couple of EF posts, including:

Hainan Chicken Rice at Teohs

Re: Exchange Student From Singapore

Zhong Hua in Zähringerstrasse tastes excellent to a Swiss tongue (and they speak better mandarin than I do, which is easy however)
