Helsinki School of Natural Sciences
my key experience from erasmus
I could write a lot about being abroad during coronavirus pandemic. About the decision not to return home, when European countries started to close their borders. About the necessary ability to flexibly react to current situation (which I don’t have). It’s true that the coronavirus situation had a big impact on my stay in Finland and that it has been a weird semester. But that wasn’t that important.
The experience gained in university courses also weren’t the key ones (although almost all of the courses were really enriching).
The most important experience for me was getting to know the Finnish society. Society in which cooperation, community and equality is valued the most, where sustainability is debated in every topic, society that is not afraid of walking new paths and trying new things.
