Georgia - 2022

"I absolutely loved the course that I did. It was taught in a really brilliant way that was fantastic at teaching and then consolidating knowledge. Even though it was very intensive, the way it was taught meant that I felt like I knew it from learning it straight away and we were given so many resources that helped expand this knowledge as well."









Sarah - 2022

"Even though it was only a short-term experience, I think I really grew into myself and gained a lot of confidence within myself and in social situations. I was privileged enough to travel Europe and deep dive into London life whilst making friendships worldwide that will last a lifetime and I'll remember for a long time!"









Sophia - 2022

"The course I undertook definitely broadened by perspective and introduced me to a variety of interesting pathways and topics, which has encouraged me to consider the professional path I may take and what it could involved. It has taught me to think bigger and look towards the bigger picture."









Matthew - 2022

"I honed my networking and interpersonal skills while on exchange, connecting with various peoples from different cultures and countries. It was a challenge to effectively communicate my meaning from Australian-English to an English some non-native speakers would appreciate, so I worked on how I communicate and really took the time to get to know how others think. I believe this will heavily contribute to future employability."
