“As I have greatly enjoyed the time spent as Erasmus student I considered the participation to this gala as a natural outcome and a chance to place myself among those with similar experience. It was also a form to express my appreciation for those helping me during this period – the professors of TUIASI – as well as those in England, alongside my family. For me, the Erasmus experience meant the opportunity to do what I enjoy in a different culture and a different manner. The social side was also important, as I was able to meet students from other cultures and make friends”Alexandru Cohal
