Study Abroad Unit

Erasmus year: 2015-16
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

Erasmus+ is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It may be hard in the beginning, but it ultimately has a positive impact on your social and academic skills. You have to adapt to a new place, to new people, to a new academic system. It's a complete - though temporary - change that is challenging and rewarding. All the skills I personally developed during my Erasmus+ programme are useful today, in both my academic and work life. These include, being able to adapt, find solutions in an unknown context and be able to do every single thing by yourself.
