The NSAC Team

The NSAC Team consists of nine sub-teams, each having their own area of focus and unique tasks. For an NSAC Team member this means that there is no typical NSAC task - they are all quite different. As a new NSAC Team member, your position the first year will be as an Organiser in one of the nine sub-teams. We open for applications to the NSAC Team once a year in December.

NSAC is an amazing opportunity that shows you what you can achieve, and it helps you take the leap. It also brings some of the brightest young minds together for mutual inspiration. Being a part of the organizing team behind the 2017 conference was a fantastic experience.”

Frederik, 20, is currently in his first year at Copenhagen Business School, studying towards a degree in International Business and Politics. He has previously been involved in Student Talks, a global student organisation spreading the ideas of succesful students through different TED like events. Having been on a short exchange in High School, his thirst for studying abroad has far from been satiated. After attending NSAC 2016, he joined the team to help others satiate their thirsts for studies abroad.

“Going abroad to study is something that requires more information than can possibly be crammed into one day. And that is where NSAC beats any other study abroad conference I know of. Not because the NSAC Conference runs over multiple days, but because the community and workshops provide in depth information directly relevant to studying abroad.”

That experience opened his eagerness for taking his master’s degree abroad.

“Universities highly recommend taking a semester abroad during your studies, but who recommends to take a full bachelor or master abroad? No one, not even your highschools. I believe this is here NSAC contributes, by stepping in and becoming a key speaker for these opportunities abroad, when no one else will.”

"Every day I see so many fellow students, ambitious and bright, misdirecting their potential and competence by not being informed on their options.
