From the school years, I have always wanted to study abroad. I think studying abroad and gaining foreign experience is one of the fundamental factors for becoming a full-fledged professional. The program "Erasmus +" gave me this opportunity and I studied at Juraj Dobrila University of Pula in Croatia. The days that I have spent were unforgettable. My expectations were met as “Erasmus+” gave me the opportunity to gain professional knowledge, to apply them practically and achieve expertise in my field. 

The University is using new technologies, the classes are taught by the highly qualified professional staff, with open discussions and friendly atmosphere. Indeed, the Juraj Dobrila University has enabled me to apply my knowledge, develop my teamwork skills, which are very important. Overall, it was wonderful to have such a well-equipped library and friendly staff. 

However, this was not just a program to get professional knowledge. This was a new and great opportunity to get new friends, get acquainted with their culture and experience it first-hand, as well as improve my English and learn new languages. This program gave me knowledge, new friends, unforgettable trips, cities with developed civilization, beautiful nature, centuries-old culture and many other wonderful moments. The months that I have spent in Croatia are the beginning of a new life chapter full of many goals.  

Now I am in Armenia, and as I have promised, I am going to use the knowledge and skills that I have gained in Croatia to contribute to the development of my Armenia.
