Top destinations for Erasmus – grab the opportunity!

Have you ever dreamt of going far from home and having an unforgettable adventure?

Erasmus+ is an excellent opportunity to leave home and live a life somewhere far away with other open-minded and outgoing people. We will now take a small trip around Europe and check out the most popular towns for exchange. Each of them has something special to offer; in addition, the local ESN sections do an amazing job in order to create an unforgettable experience for the Erasmus students. So, let’s begin!

Spain

Our first stop is a country of eternal sun, wonderful beaches and rich history –  it is the first choice among the Erasmus destinations. Does your heart melt when you hear the Spanish language? Are you an outgoing person who enjoys spending evenings with your friends at a local restaurant whilst trying all the seafood? Are you a history geek wishing to learn more about Europe’s past? If you answered ‘yes’ to at least one of these questions then it’s time to pack your suitcases and move to Spain!

Granada

This is the most popular city among the exchange students. University of Granada is one of the best in the world, Alhambra is simply breathtaking and the delicious tapas will get you addicted forever! The narrow streets and endless teterias create a special atmosphere in the city. You can also go skiing at Sierra Nevada, how wonderful is that?

ESN Granada welcomes all the new students and offers a lot of different trips and events. Go to their website before your Erasmus and find out all the awesomeness that is waiting for you!

Valencia

Two universities and plenty of students make this a city full of life during the day and all night long! This is a city of fireworks, football (a visit to Mestalla is a must!), horchata and unforgettable fiestas! If you plan your exchange during the spring semester – get ready for a lot of noise during Las Fallas – one of the biggest festivities in Spain. There are two ESN sections in Valencia, one for each University - and double happiness!

United Kingdom

Fancy an afternoon tea? Or maybe you are crazy Harry Potter fan and can’t wait to see the places where it was filmed? Are you Sherlock-ed? How about discovering the meaning of Stonehenge? Erasmus in the United Kingdom will give you a nice British accent, lots of wonderful experiences and memories. Remember to look right when crossing the road!

London

“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life;
for there is, in London, all that life can afford."
-Samuel Johnson.

London is a huge city full of students: several London Universities are among the top-100 best higher-education institutions in the world. Each district has its own soul and mood: you will never get bored! If you happen to get bored - ESN is always there to change your mood. London is the birthplace of three sections with awesome ideas and great crews!

Spooky season is officially on, but 2020 has changed our habits: social distancing is a must and trick or treating, our old-time favourite activity, must be put on stand-by. But that doesn’t mean Halloween is cancelled!
