Welcome To My Life: A Typical Day

Welcome To The Erasmus Life: A Typical Day

 

Hopefully, every day is different from the other one; but you still have a frame. In the landscape of your daily life, you will have to manage university, assignment, friends, travels, and maybe student work.

I would say that all these factors give the rhythm to your day. You don't have a lot of lectures by day, and you have free days during the week. Sometimes, you just have two lectures per week and the rest of your time is free. 

Usually, you go to the University, then you come back home to rest a little bit and work on your assignments and projects. It's important to do it, otherwise you will be outside all the day, without working. If the students have a lot of free days, the teachers at Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) want you to use this time to work. Don't be fooled by the free days, it's a lot of work which are coming for you.

During the day, you may have a friend who is always excited to do something, go out, discover the city or drink a few beers at the bar. One advice: follow them. This is also how you meet people in Amsterdam.

When you come home, enjoy a dinner with your roommates, friends, or alone watching Netflix. Take some rest, and live your Erasmus life going out on Tuesday night.  Every day is a party in Amsterdam, be sure to handle all your projects  before going out.

I also enjoy the free weeks during the year to travel in Europe with some friends.

This is a  typical day for me, and what I've experienced during my Erasmus year. Excited?
