Twenty Fives Years of Erasmus Exchange Programme

Celebrating the Erasmus Exchange Programme

Twenty five years ago a programme allowing freedom of movement to study abroad was created in Europe. Now in 2012 more people than ever from across Europe (and beyond) study abroad. it is the Erasmus Exchange Programme however that allows so many people each year to come to Glasgow and it's various institutions and have an experience they will never forget. 

Studying abroad is an experience I never had a chance to take up. However working with so many amazing people over the last five years has shown me the importance of schemes such as ERASMUS. On Friday evening past we celebrated the scheme in style at City Chambers in Glasgow City Centre near George Square. With around four hundred students and staff in tow we listened to some amazing talks from people of all walks of life who were involved with the Erasmus Scheme.

However it was ESN Glasgow's own Luis (from Spain) that finished the night with a passionate speech on the importance of getting involved in more than just your studies. Luis even gave Student Tours Scotland a wee mention in his talk. Cheers buddy!
