Adam SmithName: Adam
Erasmus year: 2015-16
Destination: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany

Moving to a new city in a new country and forcing myself to learn a new language has worked wonders for my confidence, independence and social skills. I now find myself eagerly putting myself in situations that would've terrified me a couple of years ago! I've made some of the closest friendships I've ever had and had countless experiences I will never forget, and I'm planning on moving back to Berlin as soon as possible. I haven't even graduated yet and having Erasmus+ on my CV has already opened doors, and is vital if you wish to work in an international setting!
