The EU has delivered half a century of peace, stability and prosperity, helped raise living standards, and launched a single European currency, the euro.
Thanks to the abolition of border controls between EU countries, people can travel freely throughout most of the continent. And it's become much easier to live and work abroad in Europe.
So take your change and discover the EU during mobility activities and international exchange.
Hello, my name is Marcos. I am from Spain. I participated in two European mobility programmes in Palermo, Italy. During both the experiences, I worked in the multimedia department in CESIE, dealing with graphic design, photo and video editing.

"I was not given risky tasks as electrician because I didn't know the specific Italian language
needed for it. Technical language is more important than coloquial.
Improving technical language will give the students better working experience".
I have accompanied students on 3 Mobility Placements now, 1 in Paris and 2 in Gijon, Spain.
The whole process had just got better over time, and the whole experience has been amazing for the students.
From each visit, at least one student has been offered the opportunity of returning to the placement for either paid summer work or full time employment.
