"I would definitely recommend visiting Lund University; Swedish people are very nice and friendly, Lund is beautiful. It was very inspiring to meet with different staff members and professors at Lund University, and to learn more about the projects that they are involved in." Diane Audi, 2017
"I would like to thank three entities: AUB, Erasmus and Koc University, for the great opportunity to take part in a one-week Staff Mobility Program at KOC's Social Impact Forum. I would definitely recommend the Erasmus Staff Mobility Program to all those who are open to learning new skills, languages and experiencing a new professional setting at another university. Koc University is an excellent higher education institution which is also distinctively located inside a forest in Sariyer (Istanbul). The experience over there is beyond enriching on every level (professional, personal, and certainly cultural). " Nadine Ghalayini, 2017
