Erasmus is a powerful experience!

It has been a great experience for me to visit our partners in Spain, to meet them face by face as usually we communicate by emails only. I was glad to see the campus of the University as well.

Let's agree with all what has been said on this topic: meeting local people is one of the best things that can happen to you. Being abroad as a tourist is completely different from being abroad as an exchange member, and once you get immersed in the local lifestyle, everything immediately becomes easier. You start making closer friends, better food, and wonderful memories. After all: making young Europeans fall in love with each other’s countries and people, day after day, is one of the Erasmus wonders.

Also, I was very happy to meet our students there, the one who were recently passing their internships. To see their working places, their management, to collect the reviews from the both sides. It does help a lot to understand students’ needs for the future internships.

I was surprised to see the great conditions which our partners provide to our students. I would like to use the opportunity to say big thank you to them for a huge amount of support which our students received from them.
