15, 16 and 17 October 2020, three days of celebration of the Erasmus+ Programme in Europe and beyond during the #ErasmusDays. A unique opportunity to organize events, share Erasmus experiences or spread the word about projects.
What is the Erasmus+?
The Erasmus Programme is a European Union student exchange programme established in 1987.Erasmus+ is the new programme combining all the EU’s current schemes for education, training, youth and sport, which was started in January 2014.
Students who join the Erasmus Programme study at least 3 months or do an internship for a period of at least 2 months to an academic year in another European country. The Erasmus Programme guarantees that the period spent abroad is recognised by their university when they come back, as long as they abide by terms previously agreed.
Students, on the base of their grades, get an Erasmus Scholarship, which covers the expenses of living abroad.
#ERASMUSDAYS with Proder
Today, 15 October, is the first of the Erasmus days. On this occasion, we as Proder have collected the story about the Erasmus+ experience of one of our participants in a video, shared on our social media: YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Ayshan has come here on July and started her internship. She is a student of the Computer Science Faculty at Academia WSB University in Poland. During the first year of her master’s degree, following an English exam, she got a Scholarship and applied to Erasmus+ Internship Program through the International Office of her University. Looking online for the right experience for her, she found this internship on erasmusintern.org. She sent her resume and cover letter, and waited for an answer. After the online interview with organization mentors, she got accepted. All of them – Ayshan, the hosting organization and the International Office of the University – have signed the learning agreement and completed the paperworks about insurance, accommodation, fly tickets and all other details. She was supposed to arrive in June, but because of the Covid-19 Pandemic she had to postpone her departure.
Now Ayshan is here with us as an important resource of our staff. The three months of her internship have flown, we will miss her so much!
