Grow your confidence with an abroad experience
Lulia took part in an Erasmus programme after recommendations from her friends who had previously taken part. It was her dream to study abroad in Spain to discover the country’s culture.
She loves the Spanish language and knew the best way to enhance her skills was to live in Spain - surrounded by the language she loves.

The study abroad year provided Lulia with opportunities to travel around Spain, try new sports, make lot of friends, enjoy the weather, learn about the culture and take part in different activities with the university. Lulia’s confidence has grown since her year abroad because of the challenges she has faced and has discovered she can do anything once she puts her mind to it. She also feels that living on her own abroad and solving problems has helped her gain confidence.
During the year abroad I realised what I want in life. I became more aware of what studying means and I am more excited about studying. I feel I am more focused on my studies.
