Tiana - 2017

Studying abroad is definitely something I would recommend to anyone! I chose to study in Spain because I wanted to experience a culture completely different to my own. Whilst I was there I learnt so much not only from my course but through the people I interacted with both students and locals.

Mattea - 2017

It was an incredible experience and I learnt numerous valuable lessons about organisation and communication over the course of the program. I loved meeting students from other countries and getting to know what their lives were like, given that we were all doing similar things.
