Student Testimonial

Ben Lindsey went to Budapest, Hungary where he studied at the Corvinus University of Budapest for one year as part of his BSc Economics and Banking.

"Going abroad enabled me to discover new cultures and meet new people. I learnt how to communicate with people from various backgrounds, and my interpersonal skills were definitely enhanced".

"My Erasmus year simply put was the best year of my life. It was incredibly fun, mind-opening and I met so many fantastic people from all over the world who I will be visiting in the future. I would without a doubt recommend this experience to anyone, because you learn so much and you never know what you will see, feel or experience during your time away".

Mona Roozfarakh completed a research project at the University of Padova, Italy during her Pharmacy degree programme in autumn 2015.

'The whole Erasmus + experience has been extremely enjoyable for me over the past 3 months. I had the opportunity to work in the Pharmacology department in the University of Padova, Italy to conduct my thesis project for the final year of my pharmacy degree. I would highly recommend the Erasmus + programme to anyone that is interested in studying overseas. If you are having second thoughts about applying my advice would be to just got for it; you won't regret it!'
