Study Abroad Unit



Name: An
Erasmus year: 1995-96
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

Erasmus+ gave me wings and taught me I could dream bigger. It sparkled my curiosity and friends from all over Europe enriched my life. It was the start of an international life that led me to work in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America. Now, as an international officer at a Belgian university, I support students during their own international experience and I hope to inspire many more to take part in this incredible opportunity. Knowing the other is the best cure for thinking you are absolutely right. International experiences are the best answer to the challenges we face today.
