The Erasmus+ programme offers a unique combination of personal and academic development. A unique part of the experience is that all your fellow exchange students are new in the country as well. This means that if you want to visit a city, or nearby country for the weekend, there will be other exchange students who will want to go there too! If you don't feel like sitting at home, you won't have to, because everyone is so involved in each other's life even though you just met. This illustrates the heart of the Erasmus+ program, a boundless interest in other people's life and a combined effort to make the most of the year.
