Servus, hallo, mein Name ist Vincent Schwarz, ich bin 21 Jahre alt, ich komme aus Wien, aus Österreich und ich mache jetzt hier mein Erasmus an der Facultät für Geografie und Raumplanung und ich studiere Raumplanung und Raumordnung hier von Februar bis Ende Juni in Straßland.

(EN Translation: Hi, hello, my name is Vincent Schwarz, I'm 21 years old, I come from Vienna, Austria, and I'm currently doing my Erasmus at the Faculty of Geography and Urban Planning. I'm studying urban planning and urbanism here from February to the end of June in Strasbourg.)

How long have you been here? Have you already had time to experience Strasbourg?

I've been here since the first of February, and since the beginning wasn't too stressful at my faculty, I already had a lot of opportunities to discover the city and visit some museums. For example, I visited the European Parliament with the International House of Unistra, and I also went on many walks. The weather is really nice here in Strasbourg, so it's great to just stroll around.


What's one thing that you're really excited to do here?

I'm thrilled to participate in a field trip as part of my studies. In fact, my faculty offers a field trip or workshop in five municipalities in the Vosges, an hour away from Strasbourg. We stay there for five nights, so we also sleep there, and we work on-site to propose ideas to improve the quality of life in these municipalities. I'm very excited to participate and work on-site.


What would you say to encourage your peers to come and study at the University of Strasbourg?

I recommend to my friends to come to Strasbourg because it's a very international city, with many foreign students, not just Erasmus students but also many people who come for their studies. So it's very easy to meet French people and foreigners.
