Studying a year abroad should be mandatory for all university students worldwide. In our student flats in Barcelona we welcome many students who come to live an Erasmus experience.
With this article we want to encourage you to leave your comfort zone, go to the Erasmus exchange department at your university and ask if there is an agreement with any university in Barcelona. We assure you that it will be an unforgettable and unique experience.
A new country, a new city, a new house, new friends, new teachers, a new university, everything is new when you decide to leave Erasmus, and new is very cool!
Almost all students who have lived the Erasmus experience agree that it has been one of the best times of their lives, and that it brings back very good memories.
They say that the Erasmus adventure starts right at the moment you decide to leave and that the main reason why you decide to leave is the motivation to learn or improve your language, because when you have to live on your own in a foreign country you have to, yes or yes, make an effort to understand, so it is one of the most effective ways to learn a language.
When you are sure that you are going to leave, you have to choose the destination, and that will depend on the agreements that your university has and you will have to choose one from that list, taking into account factors such as: the interest in the language, the prestige of the university, the economy, the ease of finding accommodation for university students, security, air connection to your city, among others...
If there's one thing that's boring during the Erasmus experience, it's paperwork. You have to present papers such as a transcript, an English certificate, a motivation letter and some other papers to be admitted to this scholarship. We recommend that if you have already made the decision to come to Barcelona on an Erasmus grant, you should collect all the necessary documentation.
And at this point, comes the part of the Erasmus that we like the most and that is to help you find a student flat in Barcelona. It is important that your accommodation is close to the university and to the city centre, in Barcelona, that is not going to be difficult, firstly because we have a large number of student flats and secondly because it is not a very big city. Also, public transport in Barcelona works very well and getting around will not be traumatic.
The good thing about our student flats in Barcelona is that they accommodate many students who come to do the Erasmus and who are in your same situation, so it will help you to meet other students who have just arrived.
Multiculturalism is common in our student flats in Barcelona, so you will be able to practice several languages during your stay.
The Erasmus months are very intense, you will meet people, try new flavours, fall in love with new cities, mix languages, get to know other cultures and, above all, get to know yourself.
When it is time to go home, you will analyze it and you will know that you have lived one of the best experiences of your life.
We love Erasmus!
