''It was surprising to see how a small city can offer wide experiences thanks to the people inside of it. Being together with people who are as ready as you to experience new things was a priceless opportunity Erasmus+ project provided.''
A. Bilhan Karaaslan - Maastricht University , Hollanda

 

‘’If you are thinking to join Global Exchange, keep your motivation whatever it takes. Yes, it’s all about challenges, but this is the thing that will make you stronger.’’

"Erasmus+ days... The days I recall as the milestone of my life. The days made me meet with my great hidden potential. The days lighting the fire of continuous exploring and learning inside me. Imagine that you are a person who hates uncertainty and does anything to avoid it. And then, you decide to study abroad for a couple of months and dive into uncertainty itself. Afterwards, all you need is to trust yourself and go with the flow. I exactly did these, spent 4 full months in Finland. Joined culture-sharing clubs, did outdoor activities, worked voluntarily in entrepreneurship society, run a project with a multinational team and presented to the company's CEO. This photo could be a nice snapshot of my Erasmus+ experience describing boundaries are only illusions in human's mind."

"If anyone asks me "If you have the chance to go back to your university life, which semester would it be?" Without hesitation, it would be the semester that I made amazing, long-lasting friendships all over the world; discovered the local streets in France and learned how to be Lyonnaise, tasted different traditional and famous foods, and even sometimes questioned why they are famous =), got full of pasta and pizza when I was in Milan, mesmerized by the view in Florence that I missed the bus to Bologna, had a boat trip in St. Tropez, woke up to a very cold and snowy but heartwarming morning in Montblanc, experiencing the panoramic view of Bordeaux from the very top of the city: on a rollercoaster, going to secret parties organized by the uni that you never know the venue and more countless memories with my sisters and my brothers in the international student club's event. I could never know this would be the best time of my life without giving it a chance. Cycling in the rain, having croissants very early in the morning, not understanding the French accent, not understanding French... and the Global Village Event that I was a part of. These were unforgettable experiences showing that how we became family in just 4 months. Now I know, I have a door in almost every country, I have friends who live so far away but just by me whenever I need. Sometimes it all begins by a hello and sometimes by saying YES."

"My name is Nagihan Özman and I was an exchange student at Tilburg University, Netherlands within the scope of the Erasmus+ Study Mobility Programme in the 2019-2020 fall semester. My Erasmus adventure has a very special place in my life. It has been my dream since I started at Ozyegin University. I can describe my Erasmus+ experience as a process in which I rediscovered myself and realized what I can succeed. During my Erasmus+, I was more social, energetic, and productive than ever. I traveled to many cities and countries in Europe, made great friends from all over the world, and explored different cultures. As I learned and experienced more, my horizon was widened. Moreover, I had a lot of fun in the events of I*ESN Tilburg and our friends gathering. Also, I learned a lot from my professors and my friends at Tilburg University. On my way to the Netherlands, I was hoping that I would return as a different person 6 months later, and it happened. I turned back to Turkey as someone who is a more social and better English speaker and who has higher self-confidence and has great memories. I was lucky because both Ozyegin University and Tilburg university supported me from the beginning till the end. I experienced the best 6 months in my life ever during my Erasmus+ journey. What makes it special is that it was my first trip with my Spanish and Turkish friends all together. The best photo that represents my Erasmus days is a photo of me and my friends from a day full of good memories."

 "I had an opportunity to spend a great semester at DHBW with 29 engineering students from 7 countries. It was a special international engineering program that was well designed with different social and cultural events, factory tours, and a trip to Hannover for one of the most important industry fairs. This picture was from outside of the hostel we stayed in Hannover for a trip in the first week of the semester, as the first activity of the orientation program, I was trying to explain different keywords on the poster which was prepared by 6 German students according to the most known things of Turkey and some stereotypes about Turkey. It was a spectacular experience to represent my country by breaking down stereotypes. I believe each student in this special program is still feeling the gains of the program as a game-changer in their life."

"Through the Erasmus+ Student Mobility Programme, I have studied in the architectural engineering program at the Technical University of Lodz in the winter semester of 18/19. The Erasmus experience was an amazing opportunity to foster openness to other cultures in a place like containing a marvelous mixture of nationalities and it made me feel like a global citizen. Afterward, living alone in unfamiliar territory was a big chance which taught me to be brave and trust myself more than ever. This experience was not only inspiring me for my own design style and skills but also had an impact on the perception of myself as an architect, a Turkish citizen, a young person, and so on through various environments, people and study practices. This eye-opening exchange programme also corroborated the idea of starting a master’s degree abroad and resulted in an MSc degree at the Technical University of Dortmund, Germany."

"Erasmus Değişim Programı’yla birlikte 2019-2020 bahar döneminde, 3. sınıfın ikinci dönemi Finlandiya’nın Turku şehrine bir dönem eğitim görmeye gittim. Okuldan Finlandiya’ya giden tek kişi bendim, giderken tanıdığım hiç kimse yoktu. Gitmeden önce kafamda binlerce soru, başarısızlık korkusu, bilinmeyenin kaygısı… Hiç bilmediğim bir ülkeye, hiç bilmediğim bir kültüre, hiç kimseyi tanımadan gidiyordum. “Acaba arkadaş edinebilir miyim?”, “Yabancı dilim yetersiz kalır mı?”, “Paramı nasıl idare ettirebilirim?”, “Ya beni dışlarlarsa ve yalnız kalırsam?” gibi birçok cevapsız soru ve uykusuz geçen gecelerle birlikte Finlandiya’ya vardım. 2 ay sonra çekilen bu fotoğrafla birlikte anladım ki tüm kaygılarım yersizmiş. Fotoğrafta gördüğünüz insanlar benim gibi kafasında “Yalnız kalır mıyız?” sorusuyla gelen, ama sonrasında kocaman bir aile olduğumuz insanlar. İki Alman, iki Çinli, bir Meksikalı, bir Şilili, bir Çek, bir Belçikalı, bir Hollandalı, bir Rus ve bendeniz bir Türk….. Erasmus programıyla fark ettim ki biz gençler hangi ülkeden olduğundan bağımsız, birlikte çok güzel işler başarabiliriz. Hepimiz gelecekte dünyayı daha iyi bir yer haline getirmek istiyoruz, bunun için de birlikte çalışacağız. Bu fotoğrafa sığdıramadığım, ama Finlandiya’dayken eğitim gördüğüm Turku University of Applied Science’ta da farklı ülkelerden insanlarla grup projeleri yönetmek kendime ve arkadaşlarıma olan inancımı güçlendirdi. Özyeğin’de aldığım eğitim de Finlandiya’daki eğitim düzenine hızlı bir şekilde ayak uydurmamı sağladı. Tüm bunları düşündüğümde Erasmus’u birkaç kelimeyle özetleyecek olsaydım “konfor alanından çıkmak” derdim. Çoğu zaman yapabileceklerimizin farkında değilizdir ve konfor alanımızdan çıkmak için gerekli cesareti kendimizde bulamayız. Erasmus, o güven çemberinden dışarıya attığım belki de en güzel adımlardan biriydi. Kendimi hem akademik olarak hem de kişisel olarak geliştirme imkanı bulduğum bir yolculuktu. Vizyonumun daha genişlediği, yapabileceklerimin daha farkında olduğum bir dönemin ön izlemesiydi. Bunların hepsini de Erasmus’a borçluyum. Erasmus sayesinde başarabileceklerimin sınırsız olduğunu, kendi ayaklarım üzerinde durabileceğimi ve dünyanın çeşitli yerlerinden yaşıtlarımla bir araya gelip güzel projeler çıkarabileceğimi görmüş oldum. Erasmus’la birlikte bir yeni lisan, bir yeni kültür ve onlarca iyi arkadaş biriktirdim."

“Kendinizi keşfetmek, kişisel gelişim ve çevrenize yeni bir gözle bakabilmek; birkaç dakika içinde hayat boyu sürecek, sizi zenginleştiren dostluklar kurabilmek, kimilerinin hayatı boyunca başaramadığını birkaç ay içinde başarmak için heyecan verici ve macera dolu bir yolculuğa çıkın.”
Dasa Stanimirovic - University of Bologna, İtalya

“Eğer bu şansı yakalamışsanız ya da yakalamak istiyorsanız hiç durmayın derim. Erasmus bu hayatta verdiğim en iyi kararlardan bir tanesi oldu. Siz de benim gibi gezmeyi, yeni insanlarla tanışmayı ve yeni diller öğrenmeyi seven biriyseniz Erasmus sizin için doğru tercih.”
İrem Demircioğlu - Pforzheim University, Almanya

"Erasmus sayesinde değişik bir kültürü tanımış oldum, yeni yerler gördüm, yeni arkadaşlar edindim, herkese bu deneyimi yaşamayı tavsiye ederim!"
