About me and my expectations

4.0/5
Overall
My name is Francisca Lopes Pereira Amaral Vieira, I’m 22 years old and I’m currently studying Dentistry in Faculdade de Medicina Dentária da Universidade do Porto, in Oporto, Portugal. 
I consider myself a communicative and sociable person. I'm organized, responsible, hardworking, committed and have leadership skills. 
I have always planned to spend some time abroad during my studies.
With the Erasmus experience I improve my written and spoken English language skills, meet new people, get to know a new culture and, hopefully, open new horizons in my personal and professional life. Meanwhile I become more aware about cultural differences among different peoples and I develop tolerance and respect towards those peoples ‘differences, by working in international teams and contacting with worldwide students. Having the chance to merge in a diverse working atmosphere I can get in touch with diverse working methods and learn with them while letting the others know about procedures in my country and university. Sharing ideas and practices will be an asset I would like to acquire. 
At the same I am glad to let the community know about my own culture through different means. 
Many employers appreciate the fact of studying in another country, and that could become a key element in my resume. 
The experience I could gain during a semester with your internship would definitely be a valuable tool for the future, not only in terms of my academic formation but also for my personal growth. 
For all this, I would like to do an internship in dentistry field at your university or clinic. I am sure that I will learn a lot and will have a unique opportunity in my life.

I wish I had known...
Before leaving for Porto I had some brief e-mail communication with ex-Erasmus students in Portugal to find out more about accomodation in order to prevent the inconvenience of staying in a hotel during the first week/weeks since the arrival date was the same as the begining of the semester. I did some research concerning the country and University. However I did not try to get too much information since I consideres that dealing with problems on the spot was a more rewarding experience.

The best part of Erasmus is to discover the world and discover your limits. I managed everything after i got there.

The examination throughout the semester is very useful and gives you time for everything (like having fun, travel and study in the same time). The continuous need for study helps you to accumulate important information and the quality of teaching is high. I remained with great knowledge about the worldwide economic environment after 6 months within the university.

Everyone should join Erasmus Scholarships all over the world! It opens your mind, your soul, your future, your perspectives. It will definetly change your life and your expectations in a way you don't even realize it before going! It's the best way to describe a student life with great future goals both from a career perspective and personal objectives. Go for it, don't even ask yourself if you should try it or not! Erasmus is one of the little things that you don't need to think about it before actually do it. It can't be bad! I am very thanksful for the people I have met in 6 months and for the things that everyone taught me!

I think while being Erasmus student it's important not to forget about learning not anly from books and lectures but mostly from life situations. I would advise travelling as much as possible and trying to get to know local people and culture too.
