“ UoP had a very clear idea of what they wanted form the mobility, which was great, since it lead to an extensive and fruitful program. I spent my mornings at the International Affairs office, where we completed an ICM application and started discussing two different CBHE projects. In the afternoons I got to visit the different faculties and departments at UoP, as well as post-graduate institutes of Science, and Humanities and Social Sciences. In this short time I feel that I have seen and learned everything about UoP that I could possibly have askedfor.. ”
