Olha Samofalova, Yelyzaveta Chudesa, Tetiana Yakushko and Anastasiia Niesheva, students of Oleg Balatskyi Academic and Research Institute of Finance, Economics and Management – participants of Erasmus+ EU programme (studying at the University of Foggia, Italy) 

The time we spent studying abroad didn’t not only grant us the opportunity to obtain new knowledge in Economic Sciences, but it also gave us a wonderful chance to discover another culture and gain new experiences. These six months that we spent in Italy helped us to reveal our personalities, discover hidden skills and talents, and understand ourselves better. The study process was interesting and exciting, without taking into account the fact that it was carried out in the Italian language exclusively. However, some teachers treated our situation with understanding – they made presentations, explained the material in English for Erasmus+ students and allowed us to take the exams also in English. We are really happy that we’ve got to know what higher education in Europe is and to study the subjects that have not yet been implemented at SSU. Besides, we were lucky enough to visit Science Festival of the University of Foggia. We also had a unique opportunity to attend a lecture and talk to Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences. Fortunately, student life doesn’t entirely consist of studying. In our spare time we were taking photography classes, organized by a real professional, one of the five best photographers in Italy, Nicola Loviento. Also, we were taking Italian dance and Italian language classes for free. At the end of each class we all passed the exam and received a certificate with an ‘excellent’ grade. During the semester we had the time to travel – so we visited such wonderful Italian cities like Rome, Siena, Florence, Pisa, Bologna, Venice, Verona, Milan, and also the small resort towns by the sea, which impressed us with its beauty and uniqueness. To future students aspiring to participate in grant programmes we would like to wish confidence, openness to new experiences and challenges, patience and dedication. Be bold and don’t give up, if you haven’t achieved your goal the first time. Student life is fleeting, so you should be able to enjoy it and take useful knowledge and skills for your future career out of it. And studying at a foreign university is one of the best ways of development.
