I went to the Universidad de Salamanca in Spain for my Erasmus year.
My degree was in Spanish and Politics, so I chose that university because it offered the kind of politics courses I needed to meet Edinburgh’s requirements.
It was in a beautiful old town - the Universidad itself was founded in 1218, and there is a frog carved into the facade of one of its buildings that is supposed to bring you luck for the year.
Although it’s incredibly difficult to spot it from the street after centuries of wear and tear, its powers must have rubbed off on me at least a little because I was lucky enough to benefit from the Erasmus grant. This helped me meet so many great people and have fantastic new experiences.
