NVSU students took part in Erasmus + programme at University College of South Denmark

Alina Shakirova and Anastasia Turabova, students of the Faculty of Humanities won the university competition to study at the University College of South Denmark - UCSYD in Aabenraa. They spent 5 months (August- December 2017) studying the college program of Crossing Borders: Cultural Diversity in Early Years Education. The students were awarded Erasmus+ scholarship, which is the most prestigious European student grant. It covers all costs of stay and study at a EU university (cost of travel, accommodation, visa costs and insurance).   

NVSU students had four training modules including:

  • Crossing Borders, an introductory course to introduce the students to the Danish education system and the Danish language;
  • Cultural Diversity in Education, a theoretical study and research in schools and pre-schools related to certain topics, such as inclusive education of children;
  • Educational Development Project, an independent student project involving three school classes on a particular subject. NVSU students made a photo project with a display of photographs made by children;
  • Practical Training Period in schools and pre-schools, with a portfolio on teaching techniques and educational system.

The girls said they really enjoy teaching and always wanted to study abroad. This was a great opportunity, and they were happy to take it. When searching for a mobility program, they got interested in the list of courses offered for future teachers by the University College of South Denmark.

After taking part in an exchange program in Denmark, Alina and Anastasia would like to wish perspective international students to be determined and active in doing things they dream of. The most important thing is to not to be afraid and make a shot in different mobility programs, since it is great opportunity to travel, meet new people and make friends, learn other cultures and improve your language skills.
