“It seems like the placement year concept is quite specific for students in the UK Originally from Romania, I decided to go to university in England, and when I heard about this opportunity of spending time in another European country via the Erasmus + scheme, I thought that this was unmissable.

I had initially been seeking placements in the UK until I heard about the Erasmus funding that encourages students to do a traineeship in a different European country. I saw great value in it, as I would be able to travel, get immersed in another culture and study a foreign language.
