On 16 October 2020 the Erasmus & Study Abroad organised an institutional celebration of our longstanding participation in the Erasmus programme – part of the wider European Union #ErasmusDays celebrations (taking place between 15-17 October).
Students, staff and alumni provided testimony, images, videos and stories about their Erasmus experiences – both incoming and outgoing – highlighting what Erasmus means to them, how Erasmus has benefitted them and sharing information about their experiences.
The day included:
- Live Q&A about the Erasmus programme
- Loads of social media – quizzes, sharing images and stories etc
- Our first Erasmus & Study Abroad podcast (with contributions from staff and students).
- Video from our Pro Vice-Chancellor International talking about the importance of Erasmus and mobility schemes, in general.
Lots of information and wonderful stories shared on the day, much of which is still available on our website at: https://studyabroad.reading.ac.uk/erasmusdays2020/
Thanks to all who contributed to making the day an enjoyable success and reaffirming that mobility programmes such as Erasmus play an important part in student’s academic and personal development and growth.
