In the idea of doing my Erasmus in Vorarlberg I saw a great chance for my future - to enhance my knowledge in Social Work, to meet new people from many cultures, learn German, adjust my life to a new way of living, and a lot more. As always, money was one of the questions before I came here, especially because living costs are much higher than in Estonia. The grant I received from JUMP FHV made things a lot easier, it took away a big worry, helped me a lot and I am extremely thankful for it! This grant help the wish of doing my Erasmus in Dornbirn come true!
When deciding about in which country to spend my Erasmus in, it was a hard decision to choose Austria. I did like it the most but since the living costs are so much higher than in Estonia I did think whether or not I can manage it financially. Although my family saved some money for me, I still knew I have to live on a budget. So, when I received the grant from JUMP FHV it was a huge relief. I was literally jumping around from the excitement. The support allowed me to travel a bit more, enjoy going out with new friends and overall offered me a better experience from my Erasmus semester in FHV. Thank you so much for the support you offered!
