Annabelle Marie (left), a master's student in the French section of the School of Languages and Literatures, and Sarah Townsend, who is currently doing a gap year in Mauritius, have been selected for the much-acclaimed Erasmus Mundus Scholarship. This European Union initiative promotes partnerships between the EU and Third-world countries' universities in the field of higher education, and so aims to develop student and scholar mobility. Only 26 scholarships are awarded worldwide. "This is a great opportunity to study one of my favourite fields, or should I say addiction (literature), in three different renowned European universities in the span of two years", Marie said. She will study at the University of Perpignan in France, University of St Andrews in Scotland and the University of Tübingen in Germany.
