Erasmus year: 2016
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

I have always wanted to study abroad, even for a short period of time. Firstly, the stories and experiences that my older brother used to tell me about his Erasmus+ participation in Vienna. Then my own need to explore what it is like to live and study alone while meeting people from everywhere and being exposed to a world of opportunities made me send my application. I still remember and will never forget what I named the folder in which I saved my application documents - 'letsgotoleicester'!
