The Mundus Association participates in the TLN Mobilicat project as an intermediary organization. The TLN Mobilicat scholarship offers the opportunity to do internships for a period of 16 weeks with all expenses paid in a European country. In my case, the chosen country was Slovenia.
What was the selection process like?
The first contact with the Mundus Association was through its website: I signed up on its form where I submitted my CV, the motivation letter and various mandatory documents to be eligible for the TLN scholarship. Once the registration period closed, I received an email to proceed with the personal interview. A few weeks later, they called me for the group interview. Finally, one of the project coordinators, Clara Ribera, called me to make her decision known. I was selected!
What phases did this project have?
The project consisted of two phases: linguistics and mobility. The first, from November to January, was based on 120 hours of English classes at the Estació Espai Jove in Girona, where I shared 5 hours a day with my 4 mobility companions. The second phase, from January to May, consisted of 16 weeks of work practice on a mobility in Maribor.
ONCE IN MARIBOR
During my stay, I did my work practice at the international mobility organization ZNI. There I was involved in public relations services - creating content for social media, performing graphic design tasks, organising and implementing social events and activities.
In Maribor I shared a flat with one of my mobility companions, which was located 10 minutes of walk from downtown and about 20 minutes from the ZNI office. The city offers a wide variety of leisure activities, in addition to having places of interest. There, I had the opportunity to hold ceramic workshops and analog photography and try climbing. I would like to point out that during the second phase the Mundus Association offered us classes in Slovenian and English.
