MRU Master's Degree Student Did Internship at Refugee Support NGO in Croatia

thumbnailimg9116-750x396 Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) European Joint Master in Social Work with Children and Youth major Eleonora Nicolaci recently returned from Zagreb, Croatia. She spent 6 months undertaking an Erasmus+ traineeship at the Borders: None NGO.

“My first Erasmus+ traineeship experience was truly enriching. I spent 6 months in the beautiful country of Croatia where I worked with young refugees and asylum seekers,” said the Master’s Degree student.

She said the Zagreb-based NGO “welcomed” her from the first day and supported her throughout the whole process.

“I feel like I learned so much and put into practice things I learned in books in my first semester of Master’s Degree studies,” she said.

“The time I spent in Zagreb working in the social work unit helped me realize this is really the job I want to do in the future. It helped me improve the skills needed to feel more confident in what I do and to do it at my best,” said Nicolaci.

“I’m so grateful for the opportunity given by MRU and would recommend such a traineeship experience to everyone!”
