Daniel - 2017

I went on the International Human Rights Law trip in January 2017. My experience was invaluable. It was helpful to discuss these issue in a country that has such a tumultuous recent history and is engaged in such an active and visible crusade for human rights. The program allowed us access to guest speakers and site visits that greatly enhanced the experience. I’d recommend a global experience to anyone wanting to broaden their perspective and gain some brilliant memories.

Sean - 2017

By the end of my three weeks in Buenos Aires I was absolutely enamoured with the city, and during my subsequent months of travel around South America I missed it much more than I missed home. I feel as if I've discovered a whole continent with a complex and unique political climate and I have no doubt that, if I can, I shall return many times over my life.
