"The best part was to talk with people who disagreed with me. Indeed I began questioning my beliefs and now I am even more sure about what I think about this topic. It was also very interesting to be open to other perspectives." -Alumnus Ella 18, The Netherlands

This course is open and free of charge to anyone between 18- 30 years old and is a resident in or with the nationality of, one of the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange Project countries.

"I would definitely recommend others to take part in Virtual Exchange so they can break the stereotypes they see in the media and come connect with their fellows. The best part is that it was really diverse which has enriched conversation, it was like a conversation with the world" - Alumnus, Karima, 23, Algeria
