Are you curious what Erasmus+ studies look like during the COVID-19 pandemic for the outgoing students from BFU?
Hi, my name is Radoslav Kolev, a 2nd-year Master Engineer student from Burgas Free University. I came to Pilsen, the Czech Republic for the summer semester 2020. I am doing the Erasmus+ mobility program at the Faculty of Applied Sciences in the University of West Bohemia.
When I left Bulgaria, the Coronavirus was just beginning to appear in the media. It was not even a blip on my radar when I was on my way to the Czech Republic. Long story short, my Erasmus+ experience has been cut short, but it had a great start though. I met some nice people, visited some of the most beautiful places in this country and I had lots of fun.
The university lifestyle used to be always busy with different events, group projects, homework tasks and many more activities. And even during the pandemic, this did not change. We are obliged to attend all of the online classes in Zoom as well as do tasks in Google Classroom, create video presentations, havig exams in Moodle and so on.
In my free time during the pandemic, I was taking online courses in order to extend my knowledge in certain programing languages. Currently I am having less than a month until I return to my country. I am already making plans for every single day of this month, so I can catch up for the lost time.
