Erasmus Virtual Exchange
Erasmus Virtual Exchange - Open talk and reactions
Erasmus virtual exchange sounds like a joke, right? Except the fact that IT’S NOT FUNNY at all. Therefore, I couldn’t resist making an article about this. I found out about it through different articles and new options for Erasmus during COVID19. I’m super curious to hear your opinion about it at the end of it.
Whether you say “it’s better than nothing” or “No way, THAT’s CRAP!” …YOU ARE RIGHT. Both cases are completely TRUE and you should stand for the one you feel best about.
Now let’s break this up…
Gather your positive and unbreakable Erasmus armure
If you are one of the “it’s better than nothing” thinkers, you should know that this option is out there for many Erasmus + programs. You can search on Google to get more information about it. Here is one link that might help.
Anyway, however you feel about it you should know: IT’S TEMPORARY!!! Even though my reactions to it are NEGATIVE ….as a future Erasmus student, now it’s the moment to prove that YOU “think Erasmus”. This means that, whatever the hell happens, you know you will get your full experience sooner or later (in one way or another). Don’t lose hope and don’t give UP on it. In the end, we sure need to focus on our health, before anything else right now.
Opinions - Erasmus virtual exchange!?
To be honest, I didn’t see this coming. The situation with the pandemic looks bad…but never thought we will encounter this term. I mean “Erasmus virtual exchange”?! – Seriously?! THAT BAD?!
Personally, for me it sounds like “You are taking me to WONDERLAND, but I would have to keep my eyes closed the whole time”. So, what’s the whole point?! I mean you can sure still study online but how about meeting new people, having parties, gatherings?! Where is all the fun in meeting VIRTUALLY?! You can’t start drinking with people in a que, can’t kiss a stranger, dance like a Rockstar and so on… Apart from that, you won’t learn how to deal with Erasmus student challenges like:
*few money in your pocket
*without mummy making food and daddy going shopping
*with scary situations that you might have to face alone and so on. Therefore, no cool grown up abilities will be gathered from the comfort of your own room.
There is a whole article written about challenges that I strongly recommend to you. Check this here.
With all this being said, I still believe it should be seen as a temporary option. You should expect the worst and hope for the best as someone said. Either way, I am curious how does “Erasmus Virtual Exchange” sounds to you. You can write that down in comments, go on @erasmusweekly Instagram or Facebook page.
I’m looking forward to read it. Have a great Sunday evening guys!!!
