Study Abroad Unit


Elizabeth May WebbName: Elizabeth
Erasmus year: 1995
Destination: University of Leiden, the Netherlands

As a former Secondary Modern pupil, I was astonished to be given the opportunity to attend the University of Leicester as a mature student. I was further astonished to be accepted, having never lived outside Leicester, onto the Erasmus+ programme at the University of Leiden where I spent a very productive and rewarding 3 months. I consider my time in Leiden gave me the confidence not only to successfully complete my degree but also led to an award of a bursary to undertake my MA. Since then I have worked continuously in the Voluntary Sector as a Welfare Rights Adviser at AGEUK. Thanks Erasmus+!
