“The life-changing experience”
Spending a semester with Erasmus+ program in Perugia Italy, is now a part of my life that I will never forget. Besides the fact, that Perugia, is an ancient city and has a magnificent architecture, I was lucky enough to be part of this particular university that gathers students from all over the world. I had the chance to meet people of different cultures and make new friends which made this experience even more special.
Classes are given in English language by competent professors, who have always helped me with during my mobility. They were always helpful and motivating which resulted on enjoying the whole experience while studying as well. The university not only offers quality lessons but also a practical experience. In this university I attended different courses like English literature and international politics. Attending these classes has given me the opportunity to know me amazing authors and very important Literature works which are essential to an English learner student.
Besides the English classes we also attended classes in Italian language. It was a little hard at the beginning, but since the university offers to Erasmus student language courses in Italian, with no charge, I found myself making progress, which was a great opportunity to learn another language. Another unforgettable experience is that I had the opportunity to visit this beautiful country. I have visited Rome, Vatican City, Colosseum, Firenze with the magnificent cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and other ancient cities like Assisi which I have to say is one of the best architecture I have ever laid eyes on.
One of the best decisions I have ever made is to be part of the Erasmus + program and spend a semester at the University for Foreigners in Perugia. Everything was beyond my expectations. Not only I gained a new experience, regarding my study field, but I also enjoyed the beauty of Perugia.
Most importantly, this experience can open new doors for a wide range of opportunities.
