Erasmus+ provided me an amazing experience to participate in a study program in Porto, Portugal for a semester. It was such a great experience. I met with a lot of people around the whole world from different cultures, gained lot of knowledge. Porto was one of the best and beautiful cities that I have ever been to. In University Institute of Maia we had very qualified and friendly professors and colleagues that helped us for adapting and learning from the first day. This experience was one of the best things that I have ever done and it will always have a special place in my heart.

Bonjour, I am a French student who was in Macedonia for 4 months to studying. I had the luck to be in IBU, an amazing school with really nice teachers and educators. Macedonia is so different from France. Food, architecture, way of living, are different. This Erasmus trip was a perfect exchange, I learned a lot about the country, about others (Macedonian, Turkish, Polish, ...) and by the same way about myself. I am sure, one day to come back to this country to see how it's changed. I would like to thank everyone who helped me during this exchange! Merci beaucoup et a bientot (thanks a lot and see you soon).

Why I chose IBU? My college only sends Erasmus student to 3 schools in Europe. The other 2 options were selected so I came to Macedonia. I haven't expected a lot, but thanks to my friends and mentors my Erasmus adventure went well. City (Skopje) is small but beautiful and the Vardar River's scenery was great. Macedonian center and square are great places for meetings. People in Macedonia are very nice and warm. I recommend to see this city and find friends also have fun when doing these.
