Erasmus Days 2020 are here!

News | 14.10.2020

Join us in TikTok dance, share your most memorable Erasmus pictures and take part in our Erasmus-info Zoom. Erasmus Days start tomorrow and this year at the University of Turku they are visible in an online format!

Erasmus Days last three days, during which knowledge and experiences about Erasmus+ program and its activities in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport are shared all over Europe. Over 1900 actors have joined the event. International hashtag of the event is #erasmusdays.

This year, the Erasmus Days will take place on 15, 16 and 17 October. The purpose of the event is to spread information on the Erasmus+ Programme and the benefits of mobility, as well as share experiences individuals have gained through the project. To celebrate the event, the International Office at UTU has organized a couple of challenges for you in social media and we hope many of you will take up the challenge!

International Office challenges you on Instagram! This year, the key themes of the Erasmus Days are environmental issues, equality, inclusion and digital skills. How have they been reflected in your own Erasmus exchange? Share a photo of your most memorable Erasmus moment with the hashtag #utuerasmusdays2020! Audiobook gift cards will be drawn among the participants!

As you might have already noticed from our Instagram account, we challenge everyone to participate in our TikTok-dance video! As a theme of the dance, we performed Corona-safe greetings during the exchange (bows, waves, elbows, foot shakes etc.). We will be sharing videos of those who take up the challenge on our Instagram accounts utuexchange and utuvaihdossa, so remember to use the hashtag #utuerasmusdays2020.

In addition, we will organize a short Zoom-webinar on 15 October at 15-16 for all the interested students about the Erasmus-programme and the internationalization opportunities at UTU. This will be held mostly in Finnish, but you can participate the Q&A –session if you like if you have any questions about the topic (or you would like to hear some Finnish for a change).
