Barcelona hosts first students from Leuven (BE)
This week Barcelona has received the first students coming from Leuven (BE) despite all mobility challenges derived from the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Leuven accessed the network last year 2020, but could not start its mobilities until now due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions and limitations.
Maud Scheers, Wytze Goos and Joseline Boeykens (19 years old) are Graphic Design students from the De Wijnpers Vocational School and will develop internships at Teamlabs, a Leadership & Entrepreneurship School, and Factoria de Proyectos, a Digital Marketing Agency, until mid-June 2021. They will combine face-to-face work at the office with telecommuting depending on the pandemic evolution and restrictions measures.
Laura Garcia, Barcelona’s Mobility Manager, has given them all the information related to COVID-19 restrictions and limitations, apart from the usual accompanying tasks related to their accommodation, workplace, introduction to the city’s life and other practical issues.
Last year they already took part in an Erasmus+ group mobility with a Graphic Design partner school in Girona (Spain) and this year they have decided to go ahead with their international learning experience despite all mobility challenges derived from the COVID-19 global pandemic. Bravo!
