At a face value of being an International student, imagine a thrilling experience.  Having a dream of obtaining an international qualification in particular with the well-respected institution all over the world, the University of Bologna, one need not look far than Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Water and Coastal Management (WACOMA) Scholarship. The process of selecting applications for WACOMA Scholarship was transparent and given feedback by the Selection Team every time and given an outline of the next stage of selection till the last stage of selection where I became one of the 23 South African student candidate selected all over the world.

Its worth to pause with this, the European Embassy in South Africa did a warm send off to me and fellow students selected to study in Europe covering all the expenses and a lot of valuable information was shared even by the former European Scholarship beneficiaries. The excitement was overwhelmed when the Erasmus Mundus Co-ordinators understood the student's different circumstances and undertook to arrange accommodation for us without any upfront deposit or rent required until the Scholarship stipend was paid. Also, imagine having a dedicated Tutor informing you everything you need to know and upon your arrival in the hosting country, my Tutor eagerly waited for us to proceed with us to our accommodation.

There is a long story to narrate but in short, my Tutor and my Co-ordinators walked me all the way to familiarise myself about my new environment. The feeling of being taught by experience professors whom some come abroad, going for site visits, learning new things such as hydro-complexity, new technologies for coastal management has been an impeccable journey and experience. Studying with different students, learning from them as well has been wonderful.  The thrilling journey still continues as I will be studying in Portugal and Spain as well. The WACOMA scholarship might change your life, yes you, therefore, lodge your application. Have a joy of viewing my experiences in pictures below highlighting classroom activities, to field visits operating advanced technologies, mingling with other international and local students.

Thank you for reading,
