Erasmus in Belgium with the help of EU

Being an Erasmus student in Belgium was the best thing that ever happened to me in my student life. It happened in the second semester of my 2nd year of studies. I was supported by my home university as well as by my host university in Kortrijk all the way down to the end. People were very opened and willing to help you, thing which I consider being great because it inspires you to act in the same way with others.

In my opinion, it is an experience that should be tried by every student, because it offers a lot of educational and cultural experience by interacting with people from different countries, finding out new ways of thinking and improving your language skills.

To make this experience more appealing, the European Commission offers grants to students who want to be a part of the Erasmus programme.

Even if you cannot afford the expense by yourself, with the amount of money which is offered, you can manage your budget in a way which will benefit you. If you do it right, you will still have some money left to travel.

I will remember this experience not only because of interesting and open-minded teachers, but also because of the places I have visited and the impressions they have left into my heart. Besides some cities in Belgium, I managed to see the heart of France – Paris and Amsterdam. I will never forget Michelangelo’s sculptures, da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and van Gogh’s vortex style of painting since it was a childhood wish to see them. The reason for being a painting school that I followed and where I have learned so many things about the greatest art personalities who made this world a bit more colorful and bright. And I will definitely come back again because there are so many more things to do and so many spots to see.

Another beautiful reason to involve yourself in this great project is friends.  I had the best of luck to meet a fellow student from my home university who made the overall experience much more enjoyable and was a great support at times. We shared the same student room and the Erasmus life together and I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to meet such a brilliant human being who later became my friend.

It does worth it. Do not hesitate, try!
