A doctoral student and young researcher, Dadiana Chiran spent 3 months on an Erasmus+ exchange in Budapest. She wrote her doctoral dissertation at the Central European University in Budapest.
Being an Erasmus for the second time in a different vestige, as a Ph.D. now, was more engaging and less exploratory from a social point of view. The Erasmus programme offers the best mix between multiculturalism and focused research being a unique opportunity to get different views on your work.
I had a great time in Budapest, both in terms of work spending long hours in the beautiful CEU Library, as well as networking with my peers. Mobility for a researcher is perhaps the most important incentive and necessary advantage in producing the best analysis. At a personal level, Budapest has a lot to offer in terms of urban distractions, therefore after the long hours at the uni, there was always the great relief of going to a festival or for a long walk in the beautiful city on the 2 banks of Buda and Pest.
