Study Abroad Unit


Maxime BalletName: Maxime
Erasmus year: 2016
Destination: University of Leicester, UK

Having been able to study abroad twice in countries that are not involved in the Erasmus+ program, doing an internship for the mobility team at the University of Leicester seemed to be the perfect way to finish my master degree. Coming from France, I naively thought that I knew most things about our favourite rival and its customs. I now have to admit that I have been wrong all along. This country has and is still surprising me everyday. This experience has proved to me that Erasmus+ is a key to students self development and EU survival and that that promoting Erasmus+ should be my job.
