JUstart with Erasmus+
Erasmus+ scholarship is a unique experience.
We are sure that you have made a good decision, and envy you already!
It is similar to a holiday trip – all you need to do is to check the map, read a couple of blogs of other students, ask your friends about their experience, and pack your suitcase. The point is, it lasts longer (20 weeks or more), that is why you need better preparation.
We encourage you to take part in 3 workshops, which will prepare you for the mobility and help you make the most of the Erasmus+ experience. It is a combination of answers to frequently asked questions, and getting to know future Erasmus+ students’ expectations, and former students’ experiences, who already know that “Erasmus makes a Union.” You will meet professionals that cooridnate the Programme, and go with students to new locations. The participation is FREE. Date is to be announced. A detailed programme:
“What should I take?”
Generally it depends on your attitude, and needs. The more you are aware of your expectations the greater chance for a perfect trip. If you know, what is truly important to you,
it will be easier for you to enjoy the trip. During the 1st Workshop you will:
- focus on the first people you will meet in a new place, and think about you as a person
- think about your expectations about the trip, and your personal values
- think about your strengths, lifestyle, and whether they will be interesting for the host country citizens – a case study concerning former Erasmus+ students
“What is the situation in the place I am going to visit?”
Erasmus+ is all about experiencing different culture of the country, host university, and other foreign students. Erasmus+ students often form a closed community in other country, like a space station on other planet. The question is how to use this opportunity to get to know a different culture, and not just stay in the Erasmus+ bubble? Can the lack of knowledge about the culture of the country you are going to visit be dangerous? How not to offend its citizens?
During the 2nd workshop you will:
- find out how to live on “Erasmus+ planet” (24 hours as an exchange student)
- get to know the cultural differences (real and stereotypical ones)
- get the answers to frequently asked questions upon arrival to the host university (technical aspects)
- learn about the problems, faux pas, and slip-ups concerning cultural differences
“What do I want to learn?”
Erasmus+ is an adventure – you will learn something from it. Try to think of yourself as a person leading an expedition to Mount Everest. Successful expeditions are well managed, and successful explorers are sturdy, but do not pursue their goal at all costs. During the 3rd workshop we will focus on personal travel goals and how to achieve them based on best practices.
During the 3rd Workshop you will:
- learn what other students have gained from their Erasmus+ trips, and about your own expectations
- learn how to define personal goals, elements of the strategy, alternative scenarios
- think about possible problems, how to deal with them, where to seek assistance, and how to use it
- learn how to improve the patience in achieving personal goals
Join and enjoy the workshops!
