Have you ever heard about Erasmus? If you study at university you have an opportunity to go abroad for one or two semesters. I have done Erasmus programme twice in my life. For the first time it was in Lisbon (Erasmus studying). My second choice was Barcelona (Erasmus internship). The rule says that you can make Erasmus programme only once (once for studying and once for working).
What is Erasmus programme?
Erasmus is a European Union program to support international mobility of students and teachers and cooperation in higher education in Europe.The program wasestablishedin 1987.
Erasmus of Rotterdam
Erasmus name is derived from the surname of the Dutch Renaissance humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam. Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus known as Erasmus of Rotterdam, or simply Erasmus, was a Dutch Renaissance humanist, Catholic priest, social critic, teacher, and theologian.
Why to choose Erasmus programme?
– improving your language skills (maybe you will have similar level as a translatorsafterwards)
– meeting new friends
– experience with different culture
– typical food ( I like to try new kind of food)
Do it, if you have a chance. Erasmus was one of the best experiences in my life.
My personal rule is: Erasmus once, Erasmus forever. You will not regret it.
