Having studied a whole semester in Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, in one of the most renowned and accredited Political Science departments throughout Europe undoubtedly changed my life to the better both professionally and personally.

“Studying in the Department of Political Science in Paris Lodron University of Salzburg within the frames of Erasmus+ Mobility Program was the unattainable I was aiming to reach. Granted the opportunity to complete a semester within this exchange program I gained the knowledge and experience that will guide me through the challenges I face on my education and carrier path in the future. The enchanting city of Salzburg its breathtaking sights and the university with half a century of history and eminence broadened my perspective and worldview. Upon completion of the program I find myself challenged to aim higher. The diversity I experienced did arm me the skills and knowledge to be prepared for the goals I am yet to achieve.”
