Have you ever had the desire to live in a foreign country or perhaps to emerge yourself into a foreign culture? Is there another language you wish to learn? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Erasmus is the way to go.
Erasmus is a program in Europe established in 1987 that allows University students to have the opportunity to study or have an internship abroad for a period of time. The time period aboard varies; it can be anytime between two months to twelve months. There is no age limit. Every student receives a grant that will cover a portion of the Erasmus program fee. Everyone if given the opportunity, should get involved!
There are so many benefits to the Valencia Erasmus program. Employers will be dying to hear about your experience abroad. It is something that will set you apart from your peers. Another benefit is, you will obtain intangible skills along the way without even realizing. Independence, time management, communication, confidence, responsibility, and so much more will develop during your time abroad. Additionally, you will gain a new perspective on the world, and that is something you cannot learn at your University.
Lastly, the relationships you build; the life long friendships. You will meet people from all over the world and you will learn from each other. Your network will expand, which will help you later down the road. While abroad, you may even meet your future spouse, bridesmaid, bestman, the opportunities are endless.
The Valencia Erasmus program will provide the exposure for one to develop him or herself academically, professionally, and personally – and that is invaluable!
