What Erasmus Incoming Students say ...

Renata Berzinskaite, Lithuania

So what can I say about my Erasmus... I think its enought one word - it was perfect!! these five months was the best time in my life. Wonderful and unforgettable country, beautiful and never sleeping city, warm,passionate, crazy and very hospitable people. And ofcourse Erasmus Union with the most crazy and devoted people (I will never forget Erasmus parties in 8th ball:)). So for these who are thinking were to go for Erasmus I can say - don't think just write GREECE, THESSALONIKI, UNIVERSITY OF MACEDONIA. I promis you will never regret it!!!


It was the best period in my life, I met so nice people and I discovered this amazing country. I want to say thank you to everyone in the UOM because I did a lot of things with them and every time they were here for the erasmus people...It were a family...so, be happy!!! don't waste your time because the time will go very fast and visit a lot of place!

If you are planning to come at UOM Thessaloniki for Erasmus or you are already here reading this is because you are going to know all the crazy people of the Erasmus association and the staff from the UOM. They are going to make your Erasmus like a dream!

The” Real” European stars are not those you could see on the flag so many people pledge in. Those are some vague representations of what once someone somewhere thought meant something…The “REAL” ones are those who you meet and who “shine” through your days. Those, who you know will help you anytime you need them; those, who will play “katsiki” with you; those, who become so fast your family, that even your real one is sometimes unable to substitute them; those, who you could call up at 3am just to ask where the next party is; those, who love you, hate you, tease you, hug you, punch you, think about you…Those stars are guiding you through the dark places, warning you when to be careful and when to set your heart free…Those stars are everything but unreachable and far. They are THE PEOPLE you meet when you live up your Erasums… There are no limits, no restrictions, no boundaries…And when it is coming to an end, you may think that they will start fading away like those on the velvet sky when the dawn is breaking- but no- then they start shining brighter because they need to convince the Geography that they will overcome its strictness… And they will create a new world, a new life…

You guys were my stars and will always be!!!

Thank you so very much! I love you and I just KNOW that I will see you again…

Go Go Go!!! To Erasmus! To Thessaloniki!!! To Pamak!!!

Pierfilippo Galetti, University of Pavia, Italy

Ciao Amici!
If you are reading this text in something like english it meens that
you are choosing Thessaloniki like the city of your erasmus, choose it
or not continue to read this!
I am from Italy and right now I finished my erasmus program and I'm
trying to do everything to stay here in Greece to live. I made my
studies in PAMAK in the Music Department, MET.
It's a good department for the teachers, was born ten years ago, my
favourite subjects were all in the recording studio of the University,
very very nice. If you play instrument you can record inside for free,
and go away with your demo recording. The Music Department has at the
first the practice, and in 4 months(02/2009-06/2009) I learnt more
than I could do in Italy, more theory!
This is my experience, for everyone it'll be different.
The music scene in the city is something incredible. In the student
parties, every week, you can see concert of greek folk music (if you
don't like it remember you are not a man!), or electronic music
parties with beers for 1 euro! In the clubs in the city you can assist
to severals kind of live music, just take a walk after 23 every night
and trust to your ears. The drinks are a little more expansive than
Italy but go out and eat good it's very cheap.
Thessaloniki is very near to many cities that you can visit also with
good sea, good monument, but in general places that is good to see one
time in the life. I will not write any name of clubs, places that i
visited because it's good for you to discover them!
The Erasmus Association it's full of beautiful boys and girls that
don't have problem to organise parties and excursion to all the beautiful Greece.
They will help you to find an house, to find every
thing that you need and I mean everything... Really great guys.
Go in Thessaloniki and learn greek, it's quiet difficult but so funny
for some nice expression. For all the boys: "find greek woman but be
careful cause they are femme fatal"

Niki Mavrena, University of Mainz, Germany

You have to live it, to know it and to feel it! Erasmus in Thessaloniki is unique!

Koen Indesteege, Hasselt University, Belgium

A big thanks to the university and to my tutor for the great time they offered me. I had a wonderful time here in Thessaloniki and I am going to return to Greece for sure!

Ania Fober, University of Kroctaw, Poland

Big euxaristo to all Professors from BSAS and staff from Erasmus grafeio for making my experiance in Thessaloniki so wonderful. I hope to come back.

Simona Lopetaityte, Vilnius University, Lithuania

As you go in this Erasmus world always believe in yourself, every day do something new, be interested in others and what they may teach you, try everything and leave the others wondering how it might me. It will be one of the best experoances of your lives! I hope you will fall in love with Greece, as i did!
