Case Study

Name: José Pedro Nunes Lima Terroso

Age: 25

Country of origin: Portugal

Programme: Bachelor/Master - Civil Engineering


My name is José Pedro Nunes Lima Terroso and I am a 25 years old student from Universidade Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro in Vila Real, Portugal. Last two years and half I have studied at Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering. Because I have always been interested in other countries, cultures and habits, my choice to go to study abroad was not difficult.

From the positive feedback of my colleagues who had studied at BUT before me, Brno was a great chance to improve my English and to learn more about the Czech culture that is very different comparing with South European countries. I also found perfect course that fitted to my study program and after I passed my courses in Czech Republic, I could get equivalence almost in all exams according ECTS at my university.

Why I came back again to BUT after my studying experience abroad in Erasmus as a Free Mover? BUT is a university where I felt always welcome with good team of qualified professors and their theoretical and practical courses. BUT also offered my useful experience to study there Czech language and provided me technical visits related with my thesis that I am writing at my home university. Furthermore, my Czech colleagues in courses were always available to help me in what I needed. BUT has amazing co-operation with others international universities, therefore I could meet there interesting people discovering together the Czech culture and sharing their knowledge with me.

After my studying experience at BUT I am motivated to work abroad. This university created a significant addition to my higher education and international learning experience with people from different cultures. These years in Czech Republic helped me to develop my independence and skilled practical qualifications and also opened my mind for working experience.

Great thanks belong to the international co-ordinator at Faculty of Civil Engineering that always supported my needs and provided friendly atmosphere at the university.
