How would you describe your Erasmus experience at UGD?
Erasmus at UGD doesn’t take you to paradise but does something better. Erasmus at UGD makes you meet with a lot of amazing people. Erasmus in Shtip offers much more than I expect. Small city but I find everything I need. I really like location of the Shtip. Middle of the mountains small river and when I want a bit peace mountain of Shtip always welcome me with warm arms. When I first came here, I didn’t expect so much students from all over Europe. Long story short Shtip have beautiful nature, warm blooded helpful people, reasonable prices and most important awesome Erasmus staff! Thank you for hosting me in your University hope to come back here soon.
Do you think your exchange can be useful for you in your future working life? In what way?
Erasmus in UGD showed me I should take care of my work by myself. I came here without visa so I had less time here than it should be. While selecting courses and getting lectures I realized its short amount of time. I understood the importance of saying ‘’don’t leave todays work to tomorrow’’. It was the most important lesson I have learned here.
What was your best moment of the whole exchange?
Diving to Lake Ohrid with friends when it was 5 degrees! And I am glad full for a lot more social experience. THANK YOU UGD.
