Study Abroad Unit


LenaName: Léna
Erasmus year: 2016-17
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

My experience abroad impacted my life in a very good way. In my academic life, the University of Leicester showed me another method to teach and to learn archaeology. I couldn't have done these modules in my home university which will help me for my future job. Even for summer jobs, employers will think that you are more serious and independent because of your year abroad. During this year, I met a lot of different people from all around the world but also from around my home country with whom I hope stay in touch. I also found love and I couldn't have met him if I wouldn't have done this year abroad.
