Everyone says that going on Erasmus is the best experience you could ever have as a university student. It is not only the opportunity to go to study to a different country, or learn from a different culture. It is also the adventure of becoming friends with people from all over the globe, discovering new places and experiencing different cultural cuisines. It is simply a whole new experience.
But there are many questions that come up when we finally get that acceptance letter. When that so long-awaited moment arrives, we start googling anything that comes to our minds about the city we are going to live in the coming months, and we spend hours reading all these blogs of people that have already been there or, if we have the chance, we ask people we know about their own personal experience. We also find ourselves asking in forums about the living costs in Berlin, or whether it is necessary or not to pass a French test to study in Brussels. We wonder if riding a bike in Amsterdam is really the best in cheapest option to move around the city and where is the best place to go buy groceries in Rome. Yes, we have to admit that we are also curious to find out if Barcelona’s night life is as good as people say.
Don’t worry. You’re not the first who has come across with these questions. We all have our fears, our hesitations, our doubts. And here is where we come up. Erasmus corner is a place where we share our experiences, provide you with information and answer the questions you may come up with in this new adventure. We will help you get in touch with other students or even with locals who can help you settle as you begin this new, great and exciting journey.
