May turned out to be my favourite month to date on this Erasmus. I didn’t do a lot but I did so much at the same time. A visit from … Continue reading Less than a month left // The Erasmus Diaries #6
Hello, how are we doing? I’ve been a bit AWOL from the blog over the last four weeks, so here’s me taking a deep breathe and flinging myself head first … Continue reading Let’s catch up//The Erasmus Diaries #5
Another month has come and gone and as more of a time capsule keepsake for myself, I’m going to do an update on how my second month on Erasmus was.
In this present moment, I am sitting in one of my favourite coffee shops in Utrecht with a big mug of mocha beside me. At the start of April, I (of course) fell down some steps while I was in Prague and sprained my ankle very badly. Right now it’s not the easiest to walk on, is a gorgeous on trend colour of purple bruising and is still pretty swollen.
But this isn’t me pulling out tiny violins. I’m trying not to get my spirits down that my birthday is next week and I had planned to dance the night away, but instead I’m gathering all the positive thoughts I have, in the hope that my ankle heals in time (ok universe?)
So this is a positive, draped in daffodils, sunny list of how March went.
Here we are. Five weeks in. So sit down, grab your snack of choice, and we’ll get into it. This first month has flown. I’ve met so many people, I’ve … Continue reading My first month//The Erasmus Diaries #3
It’s been a few months since I wrote my first post in this series, and since then there’s been a lot to update you with.
After returning back to college, I was flooded with e-mails from both my own college and the university I will be travelling to. if you’re planning on going on Erasmus, be prepared, there will be A LOT of forms to fill out.
Firstly, I had to fill out two sets of paper work to do with my learning agreement, which is basically an agreement between my Irish and Danish college on what modules I will be taking while I’m doing Erasmus.
Since starting college I knew that during my third year I would have the chance to try and participate in Erasmus.
For any of you who don’t know, Erasmus is the EU student exchange program, where with the help of my college I will go over and study in a university in Europe for a semester.
I found out last week that, all going to plan I will be going on Erasmus to Utrecht in the Netherlands in Spring 2018(!) With that in mind I thought that it might be interesting to document the process of taking part in the programme; the lead up to actually going and to blog about it when I’m finally over there.
A few weeks ago, sitting in my friends car she asked me if I was excited to be going into third year of college. Before than I didn’t have time … Continue reading What I learnt in my second year of college
