Ambassador Alistair MacDonald and Erasmus Mundus alumni met Erasmus Mundus undergraduate and Master’s students and scholars for the 2009-2010 intake at the delegation’s Makati office last July 30. The new students listened as the ambassador warmly welcomed the group, after which incoming student Marcial Batiancila delivered his remarks. EM alumni fresh from Europe, Tuesday Quiller and Francis Totanes, gave tips and talked about their experiences in Europe. EM country representative Jill Lopez gave an update on the Erasmus Mundus Students and Alumni Association; Abby Yao enumerated possible efforts on improving networking and visibility. The afternoon gave the students and alumni the chance to link up and work together for the benefit of all Filipino EM students.
We at the Pinoy Erasmus Mundus blog congratulate the new students and wish them all the best in their European journey. Itaas natin ang bandera ng Pilipinas sa Europa! Hope to hear from you soon.
