You have moved… We move with you… Gains are many for all involved.
University of Novi Sad - Student mobility - Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. African proverb WHY BE MOBILE?
University of Novi Sad - Student experiences - I learned from different cultures about their history, values and lifestyles I changed so many wrong assumptions about what I used to call “foreigners” I learned a new language and feel great about it I met some cool people and still keep in touch with some of them I found it easier to get a job when I got back home after my study exchange I feel that I understand people better and can better respond to them I travelled a lot and learned about national customs I feel more independant and confident after going abroad to study.
