“Study abroad is always a great experience” is a common famous slogan, perhaps seems quite ordinary, but why is it so attractive and truthful? I will tell my story from the personal prism of view.
Erasmus is a wire that gives strong improvement in each sphere, from personal backgrounds to professional performance. It’s an adventure from the beginning of the procedure where you’re learning even small steps that empowering soft skills to grow and strengthen. It’s a place to create a social network with people from all over the world, people you are sharing precious moments with, making warm memories for the journey that is called “life”. Gratitude is always by my side and I’m strongly thankful for this program for gifting me the most important and valuable thing which is experience.
My unforgettable journey with Erasmus took place in the Academy of Fine Arts in the city of Tournai, Belgium. Studying in the Academy of Fine Arts showed me new directions in my background, which was Graphic design, Arts and Visual Communications. Professors at the academy are very precise with requirements for each project which is good, it gives a sharp clarity and focus. Belgium, the Academy, and people made my stay and mobility bright and unforgettable. I will always be coming back there to remember that I had such a nice and productive time. Also, huge thanks for my coordinators at Vistula University in departing procedure and coordinator at the invitation university who took care of incoming foreign students and helped us a lot.
For those doubting if they can perform or not – don’t let the fear take control, this program is about gaining, not losing! And now you know why “study abroad is always a great experience “.
Good luck to everyone, cheers! And learn some French 🙂 if you’re going to study in Belgium .
