Study Abroad Unit


Tyler JohnName: Tyler
Erasmus year: 2016-17
Destination: Utrecht University, the Netherlands

My Erasmus+ year to the Netherlands has opened up so many doors for me! Academically, it has allowed me to experience an entirely different curriculum which has made me realise the kind of career I would like in the future. Socially, I have experienced new and exciting things which would never have been possible at home. I've developed a keen interest in international affairs, taken trips to fascinating new places, and even got my first tattoo (of a bike, the most Dutch thing I could think of!) Best of all, the people I have met are life-changing, and are friends I will have forever!
