Gergana's impressions from University of Angers


Erasmus+ Period: 23/07/2018 – 29/09/2018

Joining the Erasmus+ Programme was one of the best decisions of my life. Life abroad changed me, I am now more open, independent and confident.

I have always been fascinated by the French culture, language, environment, food and people‘s behavior.

At first, I was extremely skeptical about going to Angers-France, but I have to admit that going there has been the best decision I have ever made.

Angers is a medium-sized French city which

is the capital of the “Maine-et-Loire département” in the northwestern region of Pays de la

Loire. It offers a mixture of historically rich street-escapes and typical French night-life.

The Faculty of Medicine of Angers started its educational activities in 1433 and it is one of the oldest in France. The medical programme at University of Angers offers a range of teaching approaches, from traditional theoretical classes to innovative and hands-on experience. At University Hospital of Angers, leading experts, professionally selected specialized team and medical apparatuses of the newest generation guarantee high quality of education for the medical students.

My advice for future Erasmus+ participants is to make sure you are readier than ever to study in French because it requires a very high level of language ability, especially for medical traineeship.

Erasmus+ Programme gives you, new perspective, loads of enthusiasm and willpower!

The University of Angers is an institution of higher education in the town of Angers in western France. It began as the School of Angers in the 11th century and became a university in 1337. In 1432, the Faculties of Medicine, Arts, and Theology were added to the Faculty of Law. The university was closed in 1793 during the French Revolution, and in 1971 a predecessor was established with little ties to the past institutions
