What did Erasmus students think about studying at the Faculty of Social Work in 2017/18:
• I really liked the athmosphere of the faculty. As it is quite small it feels like you are taken care of and appreciated as a person. (Lena from Germany)
• I like it because it is small and I have also felt very comfortable in my class. Being honest, I've been happy and comfortable. I have not had problems. (Student from Spain)
• I really liked the possibility of 'try' every subject in the beginning to make a good decision in choosing the best subjects for us. The teachers/professors were very friendly and they have a great knowledge, it was very nice to participate in the classes here. Honestly there was nothing to be bothered with. (Student from Poland)
• I really liked the way the professors were with us, very open, friendly, helpful and polite. Also if we had any problems our Erasmus coordinator was there every time – what was amazing. The excursion was also nice. There was no feeling of doing something wrong but more the feeling, everything is okay. I think also the visit of the three different organisations we had was very very interesting! (Student from Germany)
• The only thing that bothered me was that I didn't choose this faculty in the beginning. It is well run and very organised and there are lots of events for Erasmus to take part in. (Student from Ireland)
• Nice atmosphere without useless tension. (Łukasz form Poland)
• A lot of activities were organised for us which was really nice. (Mimi from the Netherlands)
• Very friendly, welcoming, unbureaucratic faculty. The great introductory week to getting to know fellow students and the city & country. Very good personal support by Borut and the professors. (Elisabeth from Germany)
• Quantity and quality of invitations to some 'extra' lectures/workswhops beyond the regular ones was very good. Further I liked a lot the extracurricular activities organized for us. (Student from Austria)
• We had time and proper introduction of the different courses before we had to choose them – that was nice! The Erasmus meetings have been really lovely! (Student from Germany)
• I liked that we had the freedom of choice for the courses, a lot of special exchange programs, the possibility of participation in cultural activities and the athmosphere between the students and the professors. (Student from Germany)
• Good organisation and a small & cozy faculty.« (Yannick from Germany)
• Nice atmosphere, professors willing to help you. (Łukasz from Poland)
• Now the faculty is new it's nice to sit and discover everything. I feel the good vibes of the other students, everywhere is very friendly and nice. You have a lot of freedom, you can do what you want but the school organized some great trips and gave the opportunity to give a workshop or presentations. (Student from Belgium)
• Immediately from the first day I felt comfortable at the faculty. It was really flexible as well and a pleasure studying here for my Erasmus.” (Claire from the Netherlands)
• The faculty is nice, very helpful and friendly staff. It was organised and everything was straight forward unlike Faculty of Arts. This meant I was never feeling lost or being behind on work. (Student from Ireland)
• We did quite a lot of activites and it was easy to get along with everything due to the fact that the faculty is quite small. (Student from Germany)
• I think the Faculty of Social Work is a very well organised faculty and has a lot of benefits for erasmus students. I only took one class in this faculty as I am enrolled in the Faculty of Arts but I wish I was in this faculty! There were regular trips organised, high quality lectures and a nice atmospher among the group of erasmus students. I have taken classes at the faculty of arts, the faculty of social sciences and this faculty and I think the faculty of social work is the best for international students and the other faculties could definitely learn a thing or two! (Isidora from Irelned)
• I liked the environment in which we study. People were so helpful. Faculty was well organised and modern and this faculty makes you feel comfortable while you are studying. (Student from Turkey)
• What I like most about studying at this faculty is that the classes are solely for Erasmus students and also there are a lot of arranged events and workshops for the students too. (Student from Ireland)
