Tim Baas is a member of the International Alumni Network. He studied in Hungary with the Erasmus+ Programme, but his relationship with Hungary goes far beyond the Erasmus experience. We asked him about this special relationship with our country.
The "Explore Hungary" information day and alumni meeting was held on 29th September at the University of Sao Paulo. Many students, who have been studying in Hungary with the Science Without Borders scholarship programme, accepted the invitation and were happy to share their experiences with other guests.
A two-day conference was organised by the Directorate of International Relations together with student associations to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus programme. The exchange programme was launched in 1987 with the aim of enabling students to experience different cultures, educational systems and methodologies. Semmelweis University joined the initiative 20 years ago and now an average of 150 students per year spend a semester in an another European country and an equal number of foreign students come to study here as well.
