Antoine Mathivon, France

During my fourth year in the Engineering School UniLaSalle, I chose to realize a semester abroad through an Erasmus exchange. I applied for the University of Stavanger because of its good reputation in the oil and gas industry and because of a curiosity for Norway. After 5 months of studies at UiS, I left Norway with new friends, an improved knowledge in petroleum geology and with great memories. The courses were great and interesting with both a theoretical and a practical approach, such as an amazing field trip in Greece and the IBA experience. They were challenging and pushed my previous limits of knowledge. During the (little) freetime that I had, I managed to discover a bit of Norway: the people, the beautiful landscapes and the northern lights. To summarize: it was a great experience which actually led me to the choice of doing my Master Thesis at UiS.
