Kseniia Zavatskaia

Erasmus+ Exchange student from ITMO, '18-'19

Kseniia Zavatskaia (Russia) did an Erasmus+ Exchange from ITMO in 2018-2019.

"I did an Erasmus+ Exchange at Vrije Universiteit Brussel. It is a young university with diverse research and study fields and nearly 20% of international students. I studied at the Engineering faculty together with students of European Master of Science in Photonics program of both first and second year. Only 3 Belgian students were there, all the others are international — Egyptian, Ghanian, Indian, Spanish, Iranian, Albanian, Italian, etc. What is great about having a bunch of different cultures around you is learning from each other and discovering a new place and new lifestyle together."

"You can read some of my VUB/Brussels stories on my ITMO Blog. In the end, I can surely claim that the experience of academic exchange is enriching and worth all the efforts invested!"
