Episode 17 - Shabab


What do you know about Bangladesh? Not much, hm? Instead of panicking and starting to browse the Internet through and through, relax and listen to this episode of Humans of SDU with Shabab. He comes from Bangladesh and now, he studies his Master’s in Denmark. Apart from his thoughts on his home country, he also shares his attitude on integration in Denmark with the listeners of Humans of SDU. Although Danes enjoy getting to know each other with a glass of beer in their hand, Shabab managed to make many friends even despite his abstinence. So – there is a way!

  • Why does Shabab recommend visiting Bangladesh?
  • What did Shabab give up by coming to Denmark?
  • How did Shabab find Danish friends?

How did we find Shabab?

Shabab is usually busy with organizing student events and helping out international students as a tutor, but he always makes time to hang out with friends. Shabab is doing Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark. He plays a part in the vibrant student life of Odense, and we were lucky to catch him before he could join another long session of Civilisation in Papas Papbar.

Portrait of Shabab

“My uncle has always told me: You have left Bangladesh but whether Bangladesh will leave you or not, is the real question.”


We asked Shabab about the troubles and experiences he faced while applying to universities from Bangladesh. It is something most internationals can relate to, especially if they aren’t from an EU country. Still, Shabab never lost his great mood and talked about the differences between living in the UK, Bangladesh, and Denmark and shared it with us at Humans of SDU.
