Erasmus + Student Testimonials
Antonela Topić, HTM program, Dubrovnik
Erasmus traineeship in La Meridien RA, Spain
"The Erasmus+ experience was beneficial in every possible way. I have gained knowledge and experience in hospitality finances, I have experienced life in a different culture, I have learned and improved my knowledge of the Spanish language and I met many people and established new friendships. Above all, I had a lot of fun and it has opened new doors in business for me. The Erasmus traineeship was an unforgettable experience through which I have developed my skills and myself generally. Up to this point, it has been the best decision I have made in my life and I would highly recommend it to all who want to discover themselves, grow and have fun."
Ivo Bulić, HTM program, Dubrovnik
Erasmus study exchange at IMC Krems, Austria
"I always had a desire to study abroad. Erasmus offered me to do so and as I wanted to improve my German I choose Austria. Along with the language, I had the opportunity to explore different cultures and meet people from all around the world. Austria has a unique education system where the emphasis is on the application of theoretical knowledge into practice. IMC has 147 partner universities worldwide and the experience of the multicultural atmosphere is unbelievable. Finally, Krems an der Donau is a town located about 40 minutes by train from Vienna. Since Vienna has an airport with numerous cheap airline companies I had frequently nurtured my passion - traveling."
Jovana Ivanović, HTM Program, Dubrovnik
Erasmus study exchange at La Rochelle, France
"My international study experience was very different from studying at home, but different is good! You grow as a person, get to explore new horizons, and see everything in a new perspectives. The best thing about studying abroad are the people you get to meet, new places you get to see and experience, and different cultures – these are what you will remember forever. You learn to adapt to new ways of studying and living, and different kinds of people."
Lucile Provain & Clara Satish Kumar, IB, La Rochelle
Erasmus study exchange at RIT Croatia, Zagreb campus
"Our experience at RIT Croatia had been awesome. We felt very welcomed and always had a great support from the staff. The school itself has a great reputation throughout the world, and the courses are high quality: you really feel like you learn something that will lead you to great opportunities. Croatia is a beautiful country and very central which gives you the chance to travel through eastern and south east Europe and discover so many other cultures. We don't regret our choice and would stay longer if we could!"
Matea Laptalo, HTM program, Dubrovnik
Erasmus study exchange at RWTH Aachen, Germany
"I chose Aachen because I wanted to do my ‘demo’ version of living in Germany and trying to improve my German language skills. During my studies, I filled my time enjoying walking in German woods and I was blessed that my dorm was next to one and I went for a walk there almost every day. Not just that I learned about others, I learned about myself and found a new comfort zone which I probably would never found if I didn’t push myself into doing my semester abroad. The overall experience turned out to be better than I thought it would be, and I thought it would be awesome".
Erasmus study exchange at RIT Croatia, Zagreb campus
"It was a great experience for me to study in Croatia. I had the chance to get to know people from around the world with interesting mindsets and make many friends. Discovering Zagreb and enjoying life there was an amazing experience for me. I enjoyed many activities as well as being involved in voluntary jobs, and student clubs. RIT and its amazing team makes work easier for you. You can focus on your lectures and Erasmus+ life more. Good luck, and if you have a chance to go to Croatia, do not ever miss out on that!"
Nina Ketiš, FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences, Austria
Erasmus study exchange at RIT Croatia Dubrovnik campus
"Going abroad was an amazing experience that every student should do before they graduate. Not only was I exposed to a different learning environment and education system, I had the opportunity to learn at another university where I was surrounded by different culture, was able to explore the city and meet new people. Studying abroad in Dubrovnik has been one of the best decisions that I've made throughout my higher education. RIT Croatia is a great institution with amazing professors. Professors at RIT Croatia excel at teaching and making classes exciting but also challenging, which made us all leave with a wide amount of knowledge that we can apply anywhere."
Samanta Skendrović, International Business, Zagreb
Erasmus study exchange at Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic
"It's amazing how much study abroad can provide for your personal development, open your mind, help you see things from a completely different perspective, connect you with amazing people and cultures from around the world, help you find your way into education and later careers, change attitudes, embrace change. I was surrounded by a wide variety of people from all over the world, learned a lot about the profession itself, and with the fantastic professors and external lecturers/guest lecturers, I received the knowledge and advice I needed to progress. Countless wonderful things!"
Sandro Stengele, IMC Krems, Austria
Erasmus study exchange at RIT Croatia, Dubrovnik campus
"Studying at a private university is quite different in comparison than studying at IMC Krems. The curriculum and the way of teaching are strongly connected to the US education system which was an interesting change and insight for me. Due to the small structures of RIT Campus in Dubrovnik, everything is quite personal and you get quite fast in contact with the professors and the staff of the university. It was an amazing opportunity to collect new experience and stay in such a beautiful city directly at sea with which is offering so much variety. I made many amazing friends, I was allowed to learn from a different culture and I was able to discover the beautiful Croatian nature."
Petar Klarić, IB program, Zagreb
Erasmus traineeship in Cadieux S.A.S.U., France
"My whole Erasmus experience was a truly invigorating sequence, for my new life obligations and challenges. My work experience abroad created a new dimension of cultural understanding applied in business and in general. Also, my language skills just blossomed! I would most certainly recommend Erasmus to fellow students who have the opportunity to travel and work, just to expand their mindset and broaden their horizons a bit!"
