Han - 2017

I decided to go on a short-term experience because not only did I want to complete a subject, but I also wanted to travel and immerse myself into a different country’s rich culture. My experience has enabled me to develop various skills and attributes, including independence and adaptability in uncertain environments and circumstances. It was incredible to learn something I have been learning at university for a while now taught in a different country from a different perspective, which has helped me to become more open-minded to the world of finance.
