How was March?//The Erasmus Diaries #4

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.

In March…

Planning and Preparing// The Erasmus Diaries #2

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.

So it begins// The Erasmus Diaries

Written 8/8/17

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.
