Time of my life

Posted at: 1 Feb 2019 | Student Affairs

Like everything great, our Erasmus semester has come to an end and with that also the Student Ambassadors Programme. However, we had the time of our lives. Here are the reasons why.

Now that our Erasmus semester - and with it the Student Ambassador Programme – is over, here are 6 reasons why you should definitely take part of it during your exchange:

  1. You will be able to connect with other cultures and identities from all over the world.
  2. It will help you get out of your shell and get a broader perspective of communication and interaction.
  3. You will learn to focus on similarities rather than differences.
  4. You will try something new and learn new skills from all workshops – such as networking, blogging, event planning.
  5. You will learn how to motivate people with different cultural backgrounds.
  6. You will meet new people and hear new stories which, probably, will make you want to go and visit those countries soon.

Finally, here some words with which our team described this experience in their own language:

Spontané – 正 – Fantástico – Головокружительно – Aventura – Oag – 难忘 – Wertvoll – 다이나믹 – Inspiririerend – Huere geil – Chido

Can you guess our nationalities?

To sum it up, the student ambassadors program will help you get acquainted with many topics that can be very helpful in your personal as well as professional future. On top of that, you get the chance to meet new people from different backgrounds, step out of your comfort zone and grow individually. Because of that we all recommend you to be part of it!
