Alanah

Spending my summer holiday learning Cross-Cultural Psychology in Graz was an invaluable experience, to say the least. The program was extremely well organised by AIM Overseas, as there was a perfect balance between study, extra activities and spare time. The course content was very useful and engaging. I found that the experience of studying in a foreign country contributed to my personal and professional development as it forces you out of your comfort zone and into a new set of challenges.
