Three Epoka Students to Participate in Erasmus+ Exchange Program with the University of Salerno

Three Epoka students, Amela Dervishi, Inesa Vërleni, and Melisa Pajo, have been accepted to participate in an Erasmus+ exchange program at the University of Salerno in Italy. This exchange program is part of an Inter-Institutional Agreement in the context of Erasmus+ signed with the University of Salerno, in Italy, Department of Statistics and Economics, and Epoka University, Department of Economics.

The students expressed their excitement at this opportunity, and look forward to deepening their intercultural and international experience as they take courses in the Department of Statistics and Economics at the University of Salerno in the spring of 2018. Amela shared her thoughts:

 

I am very grateful that Epoka University that offers these kinds of opportunities to students, and also to the staff that prepares us to face new challenges such as studying abroad. I was accepted as one of the candidates to participate in the Erasmus + Program, which offers me the opportunity to experience new things and gain different skills, especially the chance to be immersed in a new culture and learn a new language, the Italian language. It will help me establish new relationships and adapt myself in different teams and cultivate leadership skills. This program also improves my future career prospects and broadens my horizon.  I know that studying abroad is a very challenging step, but through hard working and determination everything can be achieved.

 

While courses in the Department of Statistics and Economics at the University of Salerno are mainly taught in Italian, a number of courses are also offered in English. This enables more international students to participate in exchange programs at the University. In the exchange program, students are able to have the courses they take at the University of Salerno recognized for equivalent courses in the curriculum of the Department of Economics at Epoka University.

This exchange program advances the broader goals of the Erasmus+ program to promote mobility between European countries and improve the skills, communication, cross-cultural understanding and employability of young people in Europe.
