I gained much more than just professional skills

Name: Marcin

Country of origin of the beneficiary: Poland

Country in which s/he realized the mobility project: Northern Ireland

Type of mobility (professional, education, volunteering, non formal training/adult training, youth exchanges): Erasmus+

I took part in this mobility experience because it’s a new experience for me and I wanted to improve my English and discover a new culture and places.  I decided to come to Derry/Londonderry as the place seemed to be perfect for me to gain practical work experience in my profession.


I decided to stay because Ireland is very beautiful but this is not the only reason. I want to complete my work placement and of course take up the trinity exam.


New culture, new nice people and my English improved maybe a little bit but that’s ok and I have new professional experiences. I gained much more than just professional skills, because I feel I became more mature.

I think that I had already considered myself as a European citizen


Yes I would advise it because it’s a very nice experience.  You meet new people and new cultures. I think my friends and family would enjoy this in the same way I have enjoyed it.
