After AEGEE massively fostered the introduction of the ERASMUS programme in the 1980s, the exchange programme is still increasingly popular. As you probably know, not only with AEGEE members. But what is it like to go abroad into other European countries. To find our if it is a special and unique experience, we asked our (returning) member Nora Wehmer to write a short report about her semester in Istanbul in Turkey.

Die TU Dresden arbeitet zur Zeit mit rund 150 Hochschulen aus über 60 Staaten zusammen und kooperiert mit vielen internationalen Partneruniversitäten.
