Foreign trainees

Ines Nunes, 12.6. 2023 - 31.5. 2024

My name is Inês. I am 22 years old from Portugal and I was born in a very small village called Póvoa de Varzim, near the sea. I was raised in the town next to Póvoa called Vila do Conde, in a small place called Caxinas. It is located about 45 minutes from Porto, the city district in the North of Portugal. On the 10th of June, I moved to Maribor and two days later, on the 12th, I started my one-year traineeship at the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Maribor. This is my first Erasmus experience and the first time that I have lived outside my home country. Even though I’m surrounded by new things and new people and a new culture, I’m very excited to be here. Working at the International Relations Office is a great opportunity for me because, since I am practically graduated, I am able to put to work all of the things I have learned for the past 3 years.

Sonja Nikki, 1.2.2023 - 15.6. 2023


My name is Sonja. I am 24 years old from Finland and I was born in a very small village called Toholampi. It is located an hour and half from the big city Oulu which is in the North of Finland. On 29th of January, I moved to Maribor and at the beginning of February I started my six-month traineeship at the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Maribor. This is not my first Erasmus experience, it is 3rd one and still every time when I move to a new country, I feel excited and ready to learn something new. Working at the International Relations Office is a new environment to me so I am willing to learn new things.

My Erasmus experience has been amazing, ever since I arrived to Maribor in February. I have met so many new people in many different countries around the world. Time has gone super fast because I have now been here a little bit over 2 months already. During these 2 months I’ve been here, I have learnt so much. 

Nguyen Thi Minh Phuong, 1.10.2022 – 31.3.2023

My name is Phuong Nguyen and I’m originally from Vietnam – a small country in Southeast Asia. I’m currently studying my Bachelor’s in Tourism Management in Finland, it is also the first foreign country that I’ve ever been to. After my first year in Finland, I got the feeling that I need to step out of my comfort zone one more time and try to live in new places. That was the time when I came across an opportunity to do an internship in Maribor and I applied for it immediately.

I would say doing the intership in Maribor is one of the best decisions in my life. I got to work with a great supportive supervisor, met an incredible friend who is also my colleague. And I also got the chance to meet a lot of people from all over the world and create the connections that will last a lifetime.

I would really recommend anyone to do traineeship here in University of Maribor. Because it’s not just about stepping out of the comfort zone and experience, it is also about creating unforgettable memories and friendships that will stay for life.

Hugo Guedes, 1.8.2022 - 1.2. 2023

Zdravo! My name is Hugo Guedes, I am post graduate student from Porto, Portugal after finishing my Masters in digital communication. After completing my Master’s I had the objective of going on an Erasmus mobility one more time before I leave my student life behind. After already having gone on Erasmus once during my Bachelor’s to Latvia, I wanted to have a new experience in a new country where I could a different culture and lifestyle and so I decided to come to Slovenia for the opportunity of having an internship in FEB’s International Relations Office. During this internship I had the chance to further develop my organizational skills as well as gain working experience and a new sense of a different culture. I was able to meet new people and travelling through Slovenia and other countries was also a big plus for me. Living in Maribor was a really pleasant experience because it is a small city which breathes life during the academic year and so it was the perfect choice for any student or intern that decides to have a real Erasmus experience. I absolutely recommend it and I am sure you won’t regret coming here. Adijo!


Margarida Gonçalves, 1.4. 2022 - 1.10.2022

Hello, my name is Margarida Gonçalves and I am from Portugal. I am in the first year of my Master's in Management Control. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and so I took this opportunity in Slovenia to meet new people and discover the country. Working in the International Relations Office was an amazing and enriching experience. During the internship, I meet a lot of students from different countries, who were doing Erasmus as well. I got to perfect my English skills, and organize international Events, and I got the opportunity to work in a friendly and international environment. I was never that long away from home, and Maribor made it easier. It’s a small and safe city, with hills surrounding it and a river running through which makes the city very pleasant. Due to the location, it was also very easy to see all the neighboring countries. I am grateful for this opportunity which taught me so much, I am thankful for Sanja and my co-workers who made the experience even better.


Sophie Blot, 1.2. 2022- 1.8. 2022

My name is Sophie, I am 23 years old and I come from France. To finish my master in international relations, I had to do an internship of 6 months. I had already done an Erasmus in Germany, and I was a volunteer in Lebanon. These experiences made me grow and gave me a different perception of the world. That's why I really wanted to do the internship abroad because I think that having an experience in another country is beneficial on all levels.

During my internship at the international office, I worked in a multicultural environment and developed many skills, especially in English and organization. I loved working with the office manager, Sanja, and Margarida, who was also an intern.

Moreover, Maribor is such a charming and pleasant place, surrounded by nature. I also had the opportunity to travel around Slovenia and Europe, which I am very grateful for.

I will keep many precious memories of these 6 months in Slovenia and I hope to return.

Eugénia Santos, 1.10. 2020 - 30.4. 2021

Greetings from Portugal! My name is Eugénia Santos and I am finishing my master’s degree in Management Control at Coimbra Business School. Since my early days, I have been very interested in knowing other countries, new cultures, and people. As soon as I read the call for a traineeship at the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University of Maribor, I thought that this was a great opportunity to visit Slovenia as well as for improving my professional skills. The environment at the International Relations Office is amazing, this place offers professional development on the one hand and a chance to meet different people from different countries on another, despite all the limitations due to the pandemic situation which is part of our life nowadays. Maribor is a very beautiful city, living here is an experience that I will never forget. The parks are so green, the hills surrounding the city are perfect for hiking. Moreover, the city centre is quite cosy and perfect for a short walk at the end of the working day. Also, you can always find something to do at any time of the year.

I really believe that at the end of this traineeship I will be able to say "I FEEL sLOVEnia". 

Mariam Tlashadze, 1.9.2020 - 28.2. 2021, Georgia

Hi, my name is Mariam Tlashadze. I come from Georgia, but past three years I have been living in Europe. I have recently graduated from University of Tartu, European Union-Russia studies Master’s programme, in Estonia. Besides being actively involved in different activities inside the faculty and the university, I enriched my experience by representing University of Tartu and my programme in several international projects in different countries in Europe. Therefore, I found it interesting and enjoyable to work for and represent the university.

After pursuing my Master’s degree, I started looking for some traineeship and job offers in Europe. Hence, I hit upon the call for traineeship at the University of Maribor, Faculty of Economics and Business. I’ve got thrilled about this position for two main reasons. Firstly, I have never been in this part of Europe before. And secondly, staying in an academic environment and working at the international relations office with international staff was something that I value and desired the most.

I am glad that I was given the chance of working at the University of Maribor and living in the beautiful city of Maribor for next six months.

Melissa Claire Barrera, 1.4.2020 - 1.8.2020

Hello! My name is Melissa Claire Barrera. I am originally from the Philippines but I studied my Master’s in Intercultural Management in Dijon, France at the University of Burgundy. I was doing my exchange semester in Taichung, Taiwan when I saw the call for internship at the International Relations Office of the University of Maribor. I really wanted to go to Slovenia because I want to explore beautiful sites and histories of the Central European side; and because I want to get a chance to meet the famous Slovenian philosopher, Dr. Slavoj Zizek. The call for internship was also very relevant to my studies so I was quite excited to apply my knowledge and learn more in practice. Fast forward to today, I am so glad that I was selected to be a part of this year’s trainees!

Huong Le, 01.03.2020 – 31.08.2020

Greetings from Finland! My name is Huong Le - a ‘nomad’ girl originally from Vietnam. I have been studying aboard since I was 19 and travelled to 26 countries by the age of 22. Finland was the first foreign country that I chose to study. In the third year of my bachelor, I got an amazing opportunity to join the Erasmus+ Exchange Programme. A six-month-exchange in Rotterdam, the Netherlands became the best 6 months of my life. I was longing for more experience after coming back from my Exchange, which led me toward the inspiration to accomplish another Erasmus+ Practical Training abroad.

I could say that working as a Trainee in the International Relations Office was one of the greatest choices I have ever made. I got a chance to work with a kind supervisor, Mrs Sanja Kocijan, who always takes care of us, and wonderful colleagues who are helpful, supportive and humorous. I am enjoying to support the international students who got the same problems that I used to face. Working in such a multinational environment and meeting fantastic people every day fulfil my soul.

Maribor is treating me well, I love the nature, the landscape and the hospitality of Slovenian. Another six-month full of beautiful memories is happening to me now, so I could not be happier. I would highly recommend you apply for this position and quickly come to explore yourself in sLOVEnia.

Selina Sauer, 01.10.2019 – 31.03.2020

Hi, my name is Selina and I’m from Germany.

During my Bachelor’s studies I got the chance of spending an academic semester abroad at a beautiful small Italian town called Parma. This endowed me with many fulfilling experiences, unforgettable moments and precious intercultural experiences. In addition, I had the opportunity to get an insight in various traditions of other countries and to improve my Italian and English language skills.

The application and enrolment process for my term abroad provided me an insight to different International Offices. I was fascinated by the cosmopolitan relations they have to students from all over the world and by the open-minded atmosphere in these institutions.

Due to that experience, my curiosity in the work of International Offices was awakened - and now I’m very excited to be here at beautiful Maribor - doing this internship at the International Relations Office of FEB!

Alina Zubanova, 02.09.2019 – 28.02.2020

Hi! Zdravo! Olá! Привет! Привiт!

My name is Alina. I am from Ordzhonikidze, a small town located in Ukraine. For the past 12 years, I have been living in Portugal. I believe that this change of residence helped me to define the goals for my professional life and make the right decision.

As my hobby is learning foreign languages, after high school I decided to take a degree in Languages and Business Communication. The ability to speak different languages allows me to communicate across cultures and have access to more sources of information.

Being a fresh MS graduate in Management, I have a solid foundation of the fundamentals of business and management. I lead a project thesis about commercial collaboration between Portugal and Russia. Since, I am fluent in 4 different languages, including Russian, Ukranian, Portuguese and English, I was able to gather data but also analyse information correctly. I carry that experience with me today and bring it with me into new position.

I have strong appetite for learning and eagerness for new challenges that is why I came to Slovenia as a trainee at International Relations Office of FEB soon after my MS. I love the interaction with students with diverse cultural backgrounds and the university management at the office.

When I have free time I try to participate in outdoor activities, explore the beautiful nature and culture of Slovenia and learn some Slovene.

I have a strong belief that this international working experience will give me the opportunity to find a good job in the International Relations field.

Maria Karagiannpoulou, 01.03. 2019 – 31.08.2019

Hello, my name is Maria, I am from Zakynthos, Greece. I just finish my bachelor’s degree in business Administrator and Management at University of Western Macedonia. This is my second time going abroad with Erasmus+ program and if you didn't try Erasmus yet, you should definitely do it.

Being a trainee in International Relations Office gives you plenty of opportunities to meet new people from all over the world, to improve your skills and get some experience in office work and to be a part of great team. Maribor is a very nice city, full of friendly people and lot of activities (festivals, sport events, etc.) So, if you have one opportunity like this, don´t hesitate in take it because it could be your best experience ever.

After Erasmus everyone has a different experience, everything around looks different, but the main point is the same for everyone that << you will become a citizen of the World who will always have a family out there >>.

See you soon Maribor and Slovenia <3

I met fantastic people with whom I visited many beautiful places. I learned how to be patient and understanding. I had opportunity to make analyzes and reports and be a part of great team in the International Relations Office.

If anyone would ask me if it’s worth it to come to Maribor and start International internship at Univerzita v Mariboru, my answer would be: do you need a help to pack up?

Hello everyone! My name is Catarina and I’m 22 years old. I finished my bachelor in Engineering and Management of Information Systems last July in University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal. Although my field of study is not exactly related to International Relations, I still decided to apply for this internship the moment I saw the offer. I love to travel, getting to know other people and their cultures, and ever since my first experience as an Erasmus student in 2016, in Athens, Greece, I was looking forward for another opportunity out of Portugal.

The international experiences have got changed my life and my mentality!

During the first semester of 2016 I was doing my Erasmus studies in Poland, but everything would end in February, so I decided to do my internship and continue improving my english. I found Maribor within my possible choices and it seemed so beautiful and very calm city to me, besides I read an infinity of good comments about it.  Without thinking twice, I sent my apply and … try my luck!

It certainly is and will be an unforgettable experience. I have met wonderful people, from a multitude of nationalities. Also, the deal in the office is great. But definitely Slovenia is pretty amazing! I'm in love with its nature and with all its landscapes.

It is an opportunity that everyone should try because gives you much more than an international work experience. After these 6 months I'll get useful skills for my future, I’m sure and I’m so happy to have dared to do it.

But anyway, one thing is clear, each experience are different for each one but is always the same for everyone who tried doing this, one Erasmus always Erasmus, as a citizien of the world.

Working with persons fro; different nationalities is really great because we can learn from  each others and also learn about cultures that we didn’t know before. I wanted to go to:aribor because I really didn’t know Slovenia and being in a new country with a language you don’t know is for me a great challenge.

Living in Maribor is something I will never forget.

Tang Yu, China & Finland, 1. 10. 2014 - 31. 3. 2015


I was a little bored by my life in Finland when I first heard about this practical training opportunity from Sarai Rodriguez Hervella. I applied and luckily got accepted. I had never been this part of Europe or think here as part of travel destination. Then with the practical training opportunity, I arrived here, starting a new experience which have so much differences from China and Finland.

I have been here only for a few weeks, but now I already feel the differences between working at University and studying at University, it is something new to me. The perspective become so different that I did not expected. The working environment is nice and so far everything went well, I am looking forward to see how this experience would affect me in the end.

Sarai Rodriguez Hervella, Spain, 1. 4. 2014 - 30. 9. 2014

When I heard about the practical training offer in FEB Maribor, I was very up north in the beautiful finnish Lapland, where I live.

Without thinking twice, I applied because international environments have always interested me and besides the fact of experiencing life in a new country and culture sounded like a fantastic plan (again). I have been living and spending some time in different places around the world and I can say all of them were experiences from which I learned a lot.

I am currently writing this from the FEB desk, which means that finally everything went succesful! Slovenia is a very different country from the ones I have visited before in my life and this makes this internship very very special.

Justyna Kalinowska, Poland, 1. 4. 2014 – 30. 9. 2014

Hi! Zdravo!

My name is Justyna, I’m glad to join AGAIN the Erasmus Programme. I’m more aware of my language skills and confidence after Erasmus. That program gives great opportunity to everybody to develop educational, language skills and social contacts as well. My last exchange I did in Croatia where Drava going thru the city. It makes me fell like at home.

I already notice that the atmosphere in the office is very nice and warm. The reason isn't just the temperature outside, we are all different nationalities, but we respect each other and exchanging many experiences everyday. With my "deskmate" Sarai we will try to help everybody :)

I apply to Maribor, because I'm tired of changeable weather in Poland. I love the seaside I can't wait for summer to go to the seacoast. The Sun and sea give the most powerful energy! I'm here to meet new coultures, languages and people from all arround the World. I know that after those 6 months I'll get useful skills for my future. I’m happy to be here ;)

I read somewhere that sentence:"After Erasmus everyone has a different experience, everything around looks different, but the main point is the same for everyone that <<you’ll become a citizen of the World. . .>>" I agree with that expresion. If you didn't try Erasmus yet, you should definatelly do it.

Emilia Niemi, Finland, 1. 10. 2013 - 31. 3. 2014

Like for many students, my ERASMUS-exchange was one of the best times in my life. After spending an unforgettable half an year in Germany I wanted to gain more international experience and I'm really happy to have this opportunity to be a trainee here at FEB. It has been really great here; especially I have enjoyed the wonderfully warm autumn, budget-friendly food and of course meeting all these fantastic people.

For me as a Finn, Iiving and doing an internship in Maribor feels really refreshing and interesting. This is a great chance to learn about a new cultures, not only Slovenian, but from many other cultures as well. Working with people from different countries in Europe is really rewarding I think. My co-practicant and boss at the office are really nice and having good time with other ERASMUS-people also in partys and other activities is always fun!

Almudena Sanchez Reymun Aceituno, Spain, 1. 10. 2013 - 30. 3. 2014

Many people here have asked me: Why did you choose Maribor? But I am proud to say that Maribor has chosen me.

I did my Erasmus two years ago in Geneva but only during 5 months. I really need a new foreign experience, so that when I began my new degree I started to search for practices, English courses even I have started to take part of ESN in my University.

Today I am proud to say that I have an internship in the University of Maribor in a small and warm office where you can learn office tasks, practice English, meet people and contact with them. All of this happening in a multicultural environment.

About Maribor I only can say that I love this city, its people, its buildings, restaurants, bars… more or less everything. So if you have one opportunity like this, don´t hesitate in take it because it could be your best experience ever.

Julia Heikkilä, Finland, 1. 4. 2013 - 30. 9. 2013

I did an exchange in Canada a few years back and after returned to Lapland. Last autumn I got hungry for new international experiences and luckily I had the opportunity to do this internship.

So far this has been an amazing experience. I have met a bunch of great people from all around and enjoyed the springtime in southern Europe. This internship has taught me to work with other languages and what has been most interesting is that I got to see university from another point of view.

Pilar Gomez Garcia, Spain, 1. 4. 2013 - 30. 9. 2013

This intership at the International Office of the Faculty of Economics in Maribor is a perfect opportunity to gain practical experience in working and also to improve my language skills and interhuman relations. I have been an erasmus student in France and this is another opportunity to see everything from a different point of view.

It is a students’ city, with a lot of Erasmus students, many parties and other funny events. Maribor is a very affordable city especially with the student coupons for the food that you get from the university!

Maria Irene, Portugal, 1. 10. 2012 – 31. 3. 2013

This is my second time in Maribor. I was here previously to do erasmus. I decided to back again due to the hospitality and kindness of Slovenian people that I met during my erasmus. Another reason is because I wanted to have some experience in working abroad. Being a praticant on the international office was a richful experience. Previously, I already had some experience in general office work but this practice allowed me to consolidate my knowledge on this area. The ability to adapt myself to multicultural environments increased. I feel more confident and independent. These factors can be an advantage to my work life.

Mari Keski-Nisula, Finland, 1. 10. 2012 – 31. 3. 2013

I have always been interested in international affairs and I enjoy meeting people from different countries and cultures. I was wondering for long how it would be like to work at international relations office and when I saw the FEB’s internship announcement in Maribor, I decided to give a shot.

Through this experience I have learnt more about myself as an employee and as a person. I had great opportunity to be part of a vivid and interesting workplace, and meet the right people along the path. It has truly been amazing.

Jana Zamecnikova, Czech Republic , 1. 7.2012 - 1. 10. 2012

Working in international office has been an amazing oportunity for me to learn to work with international students as well as international partners and to understand the sense of mobility programmes. I love to talk in English and experience international enviroment. I have been an erasmus student in Spain and this is another experience how to see everything from a different point of view. This intership helps me to understand culture differences and customs as well as beeing openminded.

Michael Trautmann, Germany, 1. 7. 2012 - 1. 10. 2012

The training at the International Office of the Faculty of Economics and Business is a great opportunity to gain practical experience in working abroad and to work in a diverse team. Due to the international atmosphere in the office you learn a lot about different cultures and universities.

Seeing the university from another point of view is a very interesting experience and it is awesome to get the opportunity to help other students to find their favourite Erasmus country. The working atmosphere in the office is great and the daily work includes a wide range of varied and interesting tasks.

Radka Janikova, Czech Republic, 1. 10. 2011 - 31. 07. 2012

After finishing my Erasmus study exchange, I was looking for some more options for me to prolong this “easygoing” period of my life, to enjoy my last year at university for 100%. So now I am working like a trainee at the International Office on the Faculty of Economics and Business. It is a perfect opportunity for me to gain some work experience, improve my language and communication skills and also enjoy the Erasmus life little bit longer. 

If there is something, I would like to tell in the end, it would be very short. Erasmus changed me. I feel more confident, more independent, better. It was the best decision in my life, to study and work abroad, especially at Maribor. I will never regret it!

Lenka Repíková, Czech Republic, 1. 2. 2011 - 31. 07. 2011

I simply fell in love with Maribor and whole Slovenia. And that’s the reason why I decided to come back – this time to do an Erasmus internship at the International Office at FEB. Half year of working here will give me so many experiences and it will help me in the future for sure. By this way I am taking care of both Erasmus and Slovenian students. At the end I want to tell, that you are not living real life until you go for Erasmus program. Be sure that the time you will spend abroad will be in your memories forever as one of the best time ever! :) 

Jose Luis Araque, Spain, 1. 10. 2010 - 31. 3. 2011

I have learnt the organization and management of a International Office. I have expanded my horizons, language skills and interhuman relations. Working at the International Office is not only to fill documents, answer emails...I have had the opportunity to see how amazing is to understand the students and try to solve their problems but, also the chance to feel really good when you solve it. 

These are just some of the reasons why I think it was a good decision, but also I have to say that Maribor is a great city, the workplace is very nice and the manner of the Slovenian people was a pleasant surprise. I really suggest everybody to join this experience, is not the same to write about it, than living it so, if you have the chance, do it.

Justyna Izabela Balinská, Poland, 6. 7. 2010 - 29. 9. 2010

I have learnt many things related to work, organization and management of foreign university. I have expanded my horizons, language skills and interhuman relations. I have developed my knowledge and practiced my skills like Microsoft Office, which I had gained at the university. I had an opportunity to see how amazing, but sometimes difficult as well, is to work in another country.
