Adventures of an Erasmus scholar

James in The Telegraph on his experiences in Germany

Adventures of an Erasmus scholar

After five weeks in Germany on his Erasmus term abroad, James Connington, a third year UCL geographer, has given an enthusiastic account of his experiences so far to The Telegraph.

He describes it as “a unique and intense experience”, recommending “diving in head first” to the culture exchange part of the experience, and especially avoiding just sticking together with other British students.

He also warns, “With endless people to meet and a whole new country to explore, it’s entirely possible to forget that you are actually there to study!”

James concludes; “A term abroad provides an unparalleled array of new experiences in a compact time frame. Arguably, attempting to explore as many of them as possible should be your ultimate goal, just don’t forget that you’re a student at the same time.”
