Georgia - 2019

The experience has positively affected me in every way. I loved being able to develop myself as an independent person. UCL is situated in the heart of London, so being able to explore the city before and after class was an amazing perk. I also made so many amazing friends from across the world through the summer school program, the student accomodation and attendance at student events. I was able to find more confidence in myself as a person and I loved being able to interact with new people.
