What Do They Say on Other Sites

“The Erasmus program was for me – an undergraduate student – a chance to increase awareness, skills, confidence and results for communicating effectively, accurately and respectfully across cultures. Living in a country that differs significantly from my own country, provided me with all kinds of experiences; experiences that stimulate you to socialize with others, to pore questions, to discover new methods and ways to doing things, to appreciate different perspectives, to be flexible and to determine what is of relevance, based on new insights.” (Student from Greece)
