Study Abroad Unit


Alina OmarovaName: Alina
Erasmus year: 2017
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

Britain is a wish of my life! Erasmus+ gave me a great opportunity to study abroad. I became confident, goal-oriented and sociable. I met new friends, took part in local events and travelled. My relatives are interested in my experience of English culture and lifestyle and I am able to share Kazakh traditions, food and language with Leicester students. Academic life at the University of Leicester and KAZGUU University are different. I'm going to bring the best methods of teaching and studying to my home university because the UK is known as a country with the best education. Erasmus+ changes lives!
