On October 23rd, the International Relations Department organized the Erasmus+ Program Open Day. During the event, students and staff members were able to find out a lot about mobility options they can choose from. The department started the meeting by informing how to participate in the Erasmus+ Program, its advantages for these who will join, alongside with the quick overview of the procedures of choosing a university or an institution.
In the second part of the Erasmus+ Program Open Day, the audience experienced the presentations of Polish students who participated in the program. Two of our physiotherapy students who benefited from the program, talked about their stay in Athens where they were doing the training. They managed to explore Greece and brought some of their most precious memories with them back to Poland only to squeeze them into their presentation. Not only did Klaudia and Karolina talk about their experiences, but they also engaged the audience when they concluded their speech by claiming to have signed up for yet another mobility for this summer semester. Then, two of the Computer Sciences students showed the audience how they spent their semester abroad in Portugal. Karol and Hubert explained why they had decided to sign up for the program in the first place and they had hoped to experience during their mobility. They spent 5 months in the city of Braganca, and they are constantly benefiting from everything they learnt in the meantime.
During the next part of the meeting, the Erasmus+ students who are currently studying at our university spoke about their experiences and why they decided to participate in the program. The first presentation in English was showed by Abdelhamid Mahamat from Chad, who came to Poland from the Karabuk University in Turkey. Abdel briefed the audience with his journey to Łomża and spoke about the reasons for his decisions to seek discomfort in life. He promoted the Erasmus+ program and its benefits to the students present in the auditorium. After his speech, it was time for the last student to present what he had prepared for the meeting.
