Sheffield Erasmus exchange students reunion

Since 2002, a group of former Erasmus exchange students including Wolfgang Pfarl and Tamara Kapeller who came to Sheffield in 2001, have been regularly meeting up to reminisce and keep in touch.

In November 2007 an international crowd gathered in Innsbruck, Austria to see the play “Material Girls” written by successful Australian playwright Vanessa Badham, who was an Erasmus exchange student at Sheffield in 2001.

Coming to Sheffield as part of the Erasmus exchange, gave them an excellent base for their studies and helped to create a group of close friends who regularly stay in touch.

With Austria hosting football’s European Championships this summer, they are hoping to hold another reunion of all their Erasmus friends in Vienna in summer 2008.
