Testimonial from Adam Francombe, Service Delivery Analyst, Information Services:

‘I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to attend an Erasmus+ staff training week with the help and support of the Exchanges and Study Abroad team in the International Office. The group of attendees were a mixture of IT and International Office staff from many different European countries and it was a pleasure to meet them all.
I was enlightened with a cultural tour of Brno, Czech Republic, along with a week-long IT Training programme on behalf of Masaryk University. I found the experience of identifying the IT challenges we shared in common to be very helpful and a collaborative effort was made by all to help each other on their particular topics. It was also great to explore a new city with some brilliant people, I couldn’t recommend it enough!’
