AIU student in Poland by Erasmus+

March 9, 2023

Ala-Too International University occupies a leading position among universities in Kyrgyzstan in terms of academic mobility of students under the Erasmus+ program. Every year, the AIU provides an excellent opportunity for students to feel the multicultural environment and get an education in the best universities in Europe. The story of Aidai Aidarbekova, a 3rd-year student of the Department of Linguistics proves that the university creates all possible conditions for self-development.

Thanks to the Erasmus+ program Aidai was given an amazing opportunity to experience life in the heart of Europe as a student. She studied at the University of Lodz, one of the leading universities in Poland and shared her impressions:

“We often hear that Poland is chosen as a place for study and migration. I was amazed by its mixed culture. In five months, I was able to go beyond the tourist prospects and dive deeper into the traditions, ancient culture and values of the Poles. I liked the education system because it was focused mainly on group projects and teamwork. In addition, I felt how much attention is paid to the self-reflection of students. The University often held many events and gatherings. I agree with the statement of the Poles - “Take only memories, leave only traces”, because this trip not only filled my photo album, but also changed my perception of life.”

Lodz is an authentic city known for its history, which goes back to the distant 15th century. It is known as the most important educational center. Its premises, which include various faculties and dormitories, are located throughout the city. The university has well-organized relations with many countries, as every year the university accepts students from different countries of the world.
