Erasmus + is a program sponsored by the European union which gives the opportunity to the students of travel and study in another country than theirs.
The Erasmus + program provides students nowadays one of the best way to visit and learn from a new country such as Netherlands. Students can learn all about the Dutch culture, have a work experience abroad and all of this without spending a lot of money. We believe that it is vital for students to gain experiences abroad. You will get to know a lot of people from different backgrounds and according to several students that visited us in Leeuwarden, going abroad for a longer period of time is one of the best things that they have done.
So, if you are interested in meeting new people, get to know a different culture and learn a lot of things, you might consider coming to Leeuwarden and have the best time of your life!
