Success of St. Andrews Georgian University Students
St. Andrews Georgian University is implementing various international exchange programs aimed at gaining European knowledge and raising employment.
In March 2019, Georgian University signed another memorandum of cooperation this time with Campus Lions Club Tbilisi which enabled students to get engaged into EU grant program ERASMUS +, which implements interesting educational projects.
Students of Georgian University: Elene Tsitsishvili, Mariam Taghiashvili and Giga Tsertsvadze visited Romania within the framework of Erasmus + program from March 3-10, where they participated in the project –“Beyond Media Influence” together with students from different countries.
In this interview student, Elene Tsitshishvili told us about her journey and experience in Romania.
During their stay, there was not a single case of infection reported, no panic in the city and everything was going in the usual way, they just kept more safety precautions and hygienic standards.The administration of the Georgian University contacted students every day and took care of their safety. Rati Kiria, president of Campus Lions Club Tbilisi was the leader of the team and he constantly took good care of students’ health and safety.
Students returned to Georgia on March 12, went through the check-up at the airport and for safety measures, with their own desire, despite the fact that the state did not impose any restrictions on entering the border at that time, they have gone through two weeks of isolation.
As Mariam Taghiashvili told us despite the fact that this was a short-term project and lasted only 10 days, the meetings were quite efficient. The trainings were mainly loaded with practical assignments, which made the training process more interesting. An intercultural evening was held and the representatives of each country introduced others their countries. This project gained her knowledge, confidence and she got acquainted with the culture of five countries.
Mariam thanks Georgian University and hopes that such projects will continue in the future, because non-formal education is the best way for young people to identify and develop their own capabilities.
