Two London Met students will be flying to Uzbekistan in March to take part in an Erasmus+ project that the University is participating in.

Bence Balog, a BA International Relations and Law student, and Liliya Hurrell, a BA Translation student, will be heading to Bukhara, Uzbekistan on 14 March for six days to attend the academic conference on student engagement and employability.

Bence said: “'This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the unique culture of Uzbekistan, engage with students from Uzbek and EU universities and develop new approaches for student engagement in teaching and learning.

“We look forward to this opportunity to contribute to Erasmus+ Internationalisation and Modernisation of Education and Processes (IMEP) project.”

Bence and Liliya are taking part in an Erasmus+ capacity building project which supports the modernisation, accessibility and internationalisation of higher education in partner countries. The project aims to encourage cooperation between the EU and partner countries.

The benefits of participating in an Erasmus+ project include experiencing life in a foreign country and meeting people from various overseas universities.

Dr Alex Krouglov, Associate Professor of Translation at London Met, said: “We are delighted that the IMEP Project involves students from four countries. Our London Met students have already presented their case studies at the project meetings in London in December last year.

“Bence Balog and Liliya Hurrell will meet students from other universities and develop their suggestions on enhancement of student engagement in teaching and learning and employability. We wish them every success!”
