The immense intercultural experience of Euroculture changed my life forever. The one and a half year I spent with Euroculture was a time of learning in many different ways. Whilst becoming an expert on the European Union; I met a thousand chances of exploration and teamwork.
Euroculture has equipped me with practical and theoretical knowledge about the European Union and its processes which will help me throughout my professional career. Already having hands-on experience about EU-funded project implementation, now I am more confident and determined in my career path.
The professors’ expertise on their subjects as well as their warm welcome and guidance always helped me to find the most efficient ways of studying and learning. The Eurocompetence projects provided us the space to apply the theoretical knowledge into reality and test our skills.
Making friends from all around the world made understand and cherish their various cultures and learn from them as much as I can. These many meetings left me with beautiful memories and happy bonds of friendship which will last forever.
Euroculture is a very colourful, fruitful and bright part of my road that goes ever on and on.
