It was an interesting experience, I saw how to approach the Finnish educational system. I was impressed by the schools I visited, especially by the classrooms, their arrangement and equipment. They focus on the child, as he is, trying to help him cope in life, to learn to be responsible.

I had a wonderful experience in Finland. I participated in this course with a lot of curiosity, impatience, and if I were to express my opinion in as few words as possible, that would be that the Erasmus experience is like a story that has no end. You have the chance to assimilate a lot of information, but also adaptability, courage and initiative. It is definitely a plus for everyone who participates. Even if you don't have the chance to be able to complete the research ideas you go with, your eyes will surely open, you will realize what you are competing with on the labor market on a larger scale, plus many other experiences that less of specific technical fields, but more of human interaction.
