• Study Abroad in Groningen

    Hey hey, my name is Pia Neža, I am a student at the RUG University (Groningen, Netherlands). This blog will talk about my study abroad experience. I am a second-year student however, I can not really say much since this COVID-19 situation changed my plans drastically. Somehow my abroad uni life became online studies. Yet, luckily I have so many precious memories from my first year. Without a doubt, I can say going abroad was the best decision I have ever made, and those 5 months gave me much more than I could have ever imagined.  So to all of you, who are not sure to take the risk, do it! You…

  • How to Get the Best Erasmus Scholarship for You?

    Two years have passed since I started my Erasmus+ student mobility so I decided to write an anniversary post.  HOW TO GET THE BEST ERASMUS SCHOLARSHIP FOR YOU? 1. Start with “why”: “Those who have a why can bear any how,” said Viktor Frankl. I agree with that, it’s very important to be aware of the reasons WHY you want to go on Erasmus+. These reasons will be a reminder for why you chose this programme throughout the application process and your mobility and they might serve as an encouragement if you hesitate to go or whenever you stumble upon difficult moments. Tip: Write down on a piece of paper…

  • Grad School Experience in Chicago, IL

    When I was getting prepared for grad school applications, there were several reasons why I preferred schools here in the United States. One, and perhaps the most obvious one is simply being fluent in the native language. Although I take this for granted most of the time, understanding and speaking the language has made my adaptation here way easier than it would be otherwise. Another reason is the fact that the US is home to many well-known, senior, successful researchers, both in developmental psychology and also generally in the field of psychology. In addition, seeing that many PhD programs were fully funded further influenced my decision to pursue a grad…

  • Board of Management Meeting (BMM)

    Have you ever played this game? Well if your answer is YES! Then this is a perfect metaphor to explain how it was to plan our BMM 1 (Especially, if you are like me, you have never figured out how to play it). We started organising the meeting a few months ahead and had everything planned out. We would research all the countries that all of us could travel to and when we decided on a top three, all of us would research the travel and accommodation costs and choose one that has the most reasonable price. Little did we know that step number one would require a full-on factorial,…

  • My Erasmus in Finland: The country where my dream became true

    When I started studying at my university in a very student-friendly city in Olomouc in the Czech Republic, I realised immediately that student life could bring an incredible amount of opportunities for me. I joined the national association and took part in many EFPSA activities as well. Unforgettable experiences of meeting international students at EFPSA events inspired me to challenge myself to spend one semester abroad.I found it quite easy to decide which country and city it should be in. I have always wanted to visit Nordic countries and as my Psychology Department has signed the contract with Finland only, Helsinki became my destination no.1. Luckily, I have been accepted, and…

  • Teaching and studying in the times of COVID-19

    Hello everyone! My name is Ioana-Teodora Toc and I’m a 21-years-old Romanian psychology student who is currently doing her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. One month ago, I accepted to embark on a complementary journey beside the master’s studies, a journey in which I am no longer a passive receiver of knowledge, but an active giver of it. This translates into my new job as a humanities teacher in a British-curriculum high school, in which I am fully-employed as a humanities teacher who teaches geography, history, global perspectives, and sociology. In this article, I will tell you more about how I discovered the job, how it feels to be studying…

  • Exchange In The Time of Corona

    Hi there! My name is Yekta Deniz Işık and I’m a 21-years-old Turkish psychology student. In February, I came to Krakow, Poland with the Erasmus + program to study during the spring semester at the Pedagogical University of Krakow and I can say that I had an unexpected experience. Like everyone else, while I was studying in a different country, I thought that I could meet different cultures and travel to numerous countries, but there was one variable I could not predict: coronavirus. In March, the virus had affected all of Europe, and Poland took strict measures. While it has been a few weeks since we arrived, many of the…

  • My exchange experience in one of the worlds happiest countries!

    My name is Mary O’Connor, I am 20 years old and currently going into my final year of BSc. in Psychology at the University of Limerick, Ireland. I began my exchange at the start of January at the University of Bergen, Norway. I was always looking forward to studying abroad, mostly because of the positive experiences I had with EFPSA. Meeting even more international students from all different cultures and backgrounds was something very exciting and I had high expectations. Little did I know those expectations would be exceeded tenfold! The university had a very comprehensive welcome program and the faculty of psychology organized parties for us to meet other…

  • Upcoming exchange in Australia

    Hi! 😊 My name is Salla-Mari and I’m a 25-year-old psychology major from Finland. I’m currently doing my third year at the uni and finishing some of the last courses for my Bachelor’s degree. This year, I’m going to move abroad and live out one of my long-lasting dreams. In February I’m going to be in Australia, the land down under! I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am about it and it still feels surreal. I applied to the exchange programme even though I knew that there would be a lot of competition over who gets to go there. I had always dreamt that someday I would…
