A group of Media and Fashion students enjoyed a week in Munich over February half term. As part of the Erasmus+ funded ‘Homeland’ project, they collaborated with German and Italian students in classes, workshops and cultural activities. Students presented information, pictures and videos about the rich cultural diversity of their cities.
The Erasmus+ Homeland project. Erasmus projects designed to increase collaboration and create opportunities for students across Europe. The programme allows students not only gain invaluable memories but it also serves as a character-building opportunity for students to learn, explore new cultures and improve their soft skills.
Highlights included a walking tour, led by one of the host students, Pinakothek art gallery, a traditional Bavarian meal and a trip to the fairy-tale castle of Neuschwanstein.
One student, Carmela, said:” I’ve never been to Germany before, and did not know what to expect – I was surprised by how beautiful and unspoilt the City is, the buildings are amazing and the transport is really good! We were made so welcome by the hosts, and we learnt loads about the culture there. Everyone was so welcoming, friendly and respectful. Everything about the trip was great.”
Antoinette – a fellow student said: “the best part of the trip to Munich was meeting and connecting with the students from other countries. I wished we could have stayed longer.”
Our students had a fabulous week, made lots of new friends and have come back with renewed enthusiasm for their studies.
