Laura NieminenName: Laura
Erasmus year: 2011
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

Working at the University of Leicester was an exciting and mind broadening experience. Time spent abroad gave me a chance to see new places, get to know some wonderful people and experience new things. All of this gave me an insight into another culture and way of life, which I am grateful for. Having to manage in a foreign language, learning to work with people from different backgrounds and navigating my way in a strange environment taught me confidence and courage. These lessons I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
