Beautiful experience in England

Beautiful experience in England

© 2020, Nejc Pevec

I am Nejc and I am 17 years old. At the moment, I am attending the Secondary School of Biotechnology in Ptuj. Last year I got a chance to experience an international student mobility to England (Doncaster) with Erasmus+. I took the chance and I don´t regret it at all. Our group (6 students and 2 teachers) arrived in England on 30th November 2019. For the next 2 weeks our home became an apartment in Doncaster. Doncaster is the city in South Yorkshire, located by the river Don. At first, we explored the city and at weekends we went on trips to York, Leeds, Yorkshire Zoo…

I worked at Socotec in a soil laboratory. Basically, they try to find out what quality soil samples are, using special methods and tests.My workday started at 9 am and ended at 5pm. Almost every day I worked at different place with different co-workers, that way I was able to see everything they do. My work included preparing samples for tests, sieving, mixing and weighing them.

I really enjoyed every second there and learnt so many new things, which will help me in my future career. I am very grateful to Erasmus+ project and all the people involved, because it was an unforgettable and best experience in my life.
