What Erasmus Means to Me

Erasmus was the name of the dorky child of a German-speaking physics teacher at my school. This is what Erasmus firstly means to me: dungarees and schwarzbrot. But then, this was nothing unusual for my school, the European school, where about a quarter of the students fitted that description – including me, depending on how my mother was feeling when she was making my lunch for me.

Why or Why Not Erasmus?

Making the decision to spend a year away from home to study at a university in another country is a big step for a student, but is a choice available to many thanks to the Erasmus programme which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The ability to study abroad not only means students can learn how education differs elsewhere but also enables them to experience different cultures as well as character-building that could shape a lifetime.
