Why a Student Has to Do Erasmus
ERASMUS experience enriches students in numerous ways: on a personal level, it broadens their horizons by bringing them in contact with different cultures. It helps them develop social skills and strengthen their self-confidence and intercultural experience. Academically, students learn to adapt quickly to new learning environments and experience different teaching styles. On a professional level, students get the chance to enrich their CVs as well as their language repertoire, their prospects in the labour market and develop a positive “can do attitude” which is indispensable in today’s world.
