Diákszervi
2014. 10. 13. - Bianka

Így látják ők!

Magyarország+Budapest+Külker+Xchange=Erasmusos hallgatók Főiskolánkon. Ezzel a nem túl nehézkes egyenlettel azért még nem teljesen írtuk körül az itt lévő külföldi diákok és segítőik körét. 

Az „Erasmus diákszerv” 40 aktív taggal segíti a közel 120 külföldi tanuló ügyes bajos dolgait. Rengeteg programot szerveznek egy félév során, hogy az erasmusosok minél több dologról képet kapjanak itt tartózkodásuk alatt, mint például a “kötelező” Orientation Day, ahol szélesebb képet kaphatnak az iskoláról, illetve a budapesti életről.

” Legfőbb programjaink a Balaton – és az Eger trip. Próbálunk ezen kívül még minden héten valamilyen apróbb programot szervezni, Parlament látogatástól kezdve kocsmatúrákig. Néhány hét alatt általában sikerül igazi multikulti közösséget kovácsolni a társaságból, akik együtt buliznak és ismerik meg a várost. Számunkra is érdekes egy teljesen új nézőpontból látni Budapestet, ami nem épp egyezik a szürke hétköznapjainkkal.” /Fazekas Péter/

Engem mindig is érdekelt, hogy más európai országok főiskolásai miért is választják Magyarországot, mi az, ami legfőképpen ide vonzza őket, így meginterjúvoltam 4 erasmusos diákot a Külkerről.

Why did you choose Hungary?

– I was sure I wanted to go somewhere in central Europe, I chose Budapest because my brother recommended it. He was here on a vacation earlier this year and he told me it was a beautiful city with great nightlife. To me, these were good arguments for my final Erasmus choice. And i have absolutely no regrets about my decision. /J.B./

– I did a roadtrip with friends through Europe two years ago. We’ve been to Balaton Sound Festival and three days to Budapest. It was pretty awesome and I wanted to see more of this city. Another reason is that – compared to the flats at my home – the rents are really affordable, even in the very central districts. I also like the hungarian beer. /T.K./

What is the difference between your school and BGF?

– The biggest difference between my school in Belgium and BGF is the interaction between students and teachers. At my home college teachers try to stimulate students to actively think about the subject. They do this by asking questions or making students work together to solve a problem. The courses at BGF are more one-way traffic where students just listen to the teachers and silently take notes. Not that much questions are asked and the teachers just handle the subject. It is a big difference for me. /J.B./

– In my school there is faster WIFI. My semester period is shorter, but i have more hours in university during the weeks. At my school it’s mandatory to attend our courses because we have a special dual system with partner companies where we’re working between the semesters. /T.K./

Have you participated in programs in BGF?

– I participated in most of the Erasmus programs. The sightseeing tour, the Balaton trip, capture the flag… Especially the Balaton trip was very fun! I got to meet some new people and had a great time. And that’s what it’s about isn’t it? I was surprised to hear that the people of the X-Change group don’t get any credits for organizing all these activities. They put a lot of effort into this and they should be rewarded I think. /J.B./

– Yes! I’ve been to the battle of nations, to the sightseeing tour, and to many “official partys”. Unfortunately I had to do some work for my university at home so i wasn’t able to attend the Balaton Trip. It’s cool that you offer such different things that we’re easily able to make some new friends! /T.K./

What is your best experience connected to Budapest?

– For me the general atmoshpere of the city takes the cake. Being a part of the Erasmus community here with endless possibilities to go out and have fun with everyone is the best part. Spending a night out with a group of thirty people all together and then watching the sunrise on the hill near the Chain bridge is something I will never ever forget! /A.A./

Do you know what FIN is? Had you participated in it?

– Yes, I heard about FIN (College days) from the XChange group. They organised a game called the Battle of Nations which was really fun with the little challenges for the groups. Also, when I got to school I couldn’t believe my eyes to see a beer tent right next to school. Drinking beers with all the students after classes was great. I heard you do this every year which is an awesome tradition. /F.P./

 

Tervezel Erasmusra menni?

Igen, mindenképp.
Nem, nem mozgat meg.
Már voltam, és szívesen mennék újra, ha lenne lehetőség rá.
Még gondolkodom rajta.
