Hej,

I’m Meryem, I’m happy to share my experience with Calisia University with you. First of all, my adventure in Kalisz-Poland, which started with the 2021-2022 fall semester Erasmus+ Learning mobility, then continued with the opportunity to do an internship at the International Relations Office in the 2021-2022 summer semester.

It is not possible for me to forget the help and care given to the lessons by my professors during my education at the university, but I would like to state that I will never forget the friendships I have made during my learning mobility. They became my family in Kalisz, and they still are…

I am sure that you will have incredible experiences with Erasmus+ Study Mobility. I had the opportunity to visit many European countries and especially many cities in Poland. I had the chance to participate in many cultural events and made many foreign friends.

Erasmus+ Internship mobility allowed me to see more cultural aspects of Poland. Also, I learned a lot of historical stories about Kalisz that I didn’t know. I did not neglect to taste Polish dishes that I had not tasted before, and I had the opportunity to visit cities and important centers that I had not seen before.

When I think about all this, I would like to thank Calisia University for everything it has given me during the 8-month period I spent, and Monika, who mentored me during my internship.

May the best of everything be with you. Hope to see you again…

Hello, I’m Bahri my friends call me Bahri Busch, or my Polish friends call me ‘Jesus’ because of my hair. I went abroad for the first time under Erasmus+ programme. In this case, I studied in Kalisz for one semester. Kalisz is like a small town and I always referred to it as my hometown. While studying, I usually travelled to the big cities of Poland and different countries in Europe. I made excellent friendships from different cultures. Also, Mr. Erwin and Mrs. Napadlek Greetings. You are the best teachers I have ever seen in my life.

I would like to describe my mobility in Kalisz as a challenge, because it was my first time going abroad this far from my home, being independent.
This kind of thing really helps you to grow up, teaches you how to make right decisions, how to take care of yourself, which is really important in my opinion for everyone. It was a great experience for me to see how it is to study on foreign language – English, meeting new people, getting to know new cultures, and exchanging knowledge. One of my favourite things was planned trips, which we had a few times during my mobility. It was interesting and also funny, but there were parties with Polish students that were the most memorable days for me because I now have friends which I still contact even though I am not there. And at the end I am grateful to every single person who made my time in Kalisz unforgettable.

I have been abroad for the first time with Erasmus+.
The place where I stayed was Kalisz. Kalisz is a small place, but our teachers and Foreign Relations Office staff have been very nice to us, very helpful with any problems in the course and dormitory.
They organized two trips to the two cities and held integration meetings to provide orientation.
I had a good time in Kalisz with Erasmus+. Of course, I did not stay only in Kalisz.  I visited different countries and nine cities in Poland. I would like to thank our teachers and our Foreign Relations Office (MONIKA :)) who responded immediately to all kinds of questions…

Hello, I’m Merve.

I am a 4th year midwifery student at Marmara University. I have always loved travelling, getting to know new cultures, discovering and making new friends. That’s why doing Erasmus was one of my biggest dreams. I realized this dream in the best way in Poland.  Programme Erasmus+ was really a very different experience.

Visiting Poland and other European countries, learning about their culture, meeting local people etc. it was really great.

I have been travelling since I was little. Every place I go is special and meaningful to me.  Erasmus+ was more meaningful and special to me. I made many different friends, discovered new places, had the chance to get to know different cultures. That’s why I’m very happy. It was a great experience meeting so many people from different countries and sharing so many good memories.

Kalisz is a really beautiful city. It’s a little small but it has very nice places. Everywhere is natural and very peaceful. I made a lot of Polish friends here. I’m also very happy to meet Monika❤️, she organized very nice trips for us.

I am very happy to come to Poland and do Erasmus+ in Kalisz. Living here was one of the best parts of my life. See you later Kalisz 🙂

Hello ,
I am Betül. I came to Kalisz for erasmus in February and I stayed in Kalisz for 4 months. This was my first abroad experience and it was definitely one of the most beautiful experiences of my life.
First of all ,being in a different country to study was a challenge for me and I had many concerns, but Poland was a really good start. I loved everything about being  here. Kalisz is a small city but everyone in here was really nice and friendly, I didn’t struggle for anything. I loved the culture, the foods, the people ( everything about Poland 😊 ) in here. I made a lot of Polish friends and we had a lot of cultural exchange. As erasmus students , we also met other erasmus students from other countries as well .
It was a perfect experience to meet many people from diffrent countiries and share a lot of good memories 😊 And while we were here, we had the opportunity to visit other European countries and travel a lot. We also had great time in the Bulionik dormitory. All the dorm people were very helpful and  dorm was really nice.

  I am very happy that I chose to come to Poland and do erasmus here. It was a unforgettable part of my life and I will definitely visit Poland again. 😊

Hello, i’m Muhammed.
It was my first abroad experience and the first time in Kalisz.
First of all, it was a very nice experience to be in Kalisz.  Although it is small, it was one of the most beautiful cities in Poland.  I had a great time there. While I was there, I was very impressed with its historical structure and lifestyle. I am grateful to you – Monika, you find a solution immediately when we have any problems and the dormitory management is the same. I recommend everyone to do Erasmus+ in Kalisz. I had the opportunity to meet new people from every country and formed good friendships. My best friends were also from other countries and I was trying to speak my language less. I think I have improved my English with serious differences. I was very happy when I was there and it was like home. I think it is also sufficient as a social activity; swimming, fitness, bowling etc. I spent all the activities to the fullest. I recommend everyone to do Erasmus in Kalisz.
