  • Georgie is a third year abroad student from the University of Nottingham, currently studying at the Université d'Avignon, having spent last semester studying at the Universitat de València. She says, "I spent a long time trying to decide how to spend my year abroad and so I understand how helpful it can be to hear first hand information from someone who really has been there themselves. I think that studying as an Erasmus student is very often dismissed as "the easy option" and would like to help put an end to this assumption."

  • Erasmus money matters

    Tuesday, 01 April 2014

    Earlier this week, I had the second of my meetings based on the Erasmus programme. Most of it was more of the same; we all turned up, sat down, and we had the customary ‘this is why YOU should go abroad’ PowerPoint presentation, and then we got down to the more serious business: finance.

  • Erasmus Programme: Hopes and Fears

    Wednesday, 26 February 2014

    Like many other students in Britain (and all over the world), I'm currently in the beginning stages of organising myself to be prepared to study abroad for nine months, and with this organising comes certain concerns and stressful situations. Before going to my Erasmus finance meeting tomorrow, that will also touch on applying to the foreign University of my choice (in my case the University of Graz), I'm going to highlight some of the initial worries I've been feeling, and hopefully some people will realise that they're not alone.

  • Considering the benefits of Erasmus

    Wednesday, 26 February 2014

    Today, as you'll know from my previous entry, there was an Erasmus meeting scheduled which was designed for us to discuss finance and applying to our Universities of choice; unfortunately this didn't go to plan. Due to a clerical error, the date of the meeting (Wednesday, 26th February), was incorrect, and was actually supposed to take a place a month later.
