ANR-Lab employee Maria Vorobeva will spend an exchange semester in Belgium

MASNA student and ANR-Lab research assistant Maria Vorobeva have started her student exchange program in KU Leuven for the spring semester (from January to July).

ANR-Lab employee Maria Vorobeva will spend an exchange semester in Belgium

We asked Maria a few questions about the selection at a university-wide competition and her expectations from the semester abroad.

What was the competition like? Did you receive a scholarship?
The competition was eight people per place. There was one place with an Erasmus scholarship and one without a scholarship. I originally went to the place without a scholarship. But after reviewing my documents, the host university granted me an Erasmus scholarship. That is, instead of one place with a scholarship for our university, it provided two. It was very unexpected.

Why did you decide to participate in the exchange program?
I need an exchange program to get the required number of credits in economic disciplines to then continue my studies, receiving a Ph.D. in economics.

What courses will you study at KU Leuven?
I will have about six courses. Most of the courses will be in economics. I specifically applied for those programs where I could choose economics courses. It may be difficult since these are master's courses in economics, which require economic background. But I hope that I will master it, I challenge myself.

According to The World University Rankings, KU Leuven is the Top 1 university in Belgium and Top 42 in the world.

Congratulations to Maria on passing the selection process and receiving a scholarship! We wish you success!
