“It is said that if you seek understanding, first seek to understand. Sometimes a change in environment is all you need to change your perspective – and study abroad is the perfect opportunity to do that. Long-held beliefs can change in an instant, you gain life-long friends and you gain new insights on both your country and the country in which you are a temporary resident.”

  • Megan Nurse, Participant. Immersion Programme- Universidad Javeriana, Cali (Summer 2008), English Assistantship Programme in France (2009-2010), and Programa de Asistencia en Colombia- ICETEX

“Participating in the exchange programme allowed me to not only advance academically, but it provided me with the opportunity to meet new people, become part of a new culture and to go on an adventure that was definitely worth the effort. It was an eye opening experience that changed my view of the world. I would do it again if I had the opportunity, and I definitely recommend that students make the best of it if they have the chance to do so.”

  • Carissa Martinez, Participant. Immersion Programme- Universidad Nacional, Bogota (Summer 2010), and Programa de Intercambio: Asistente de Lenguas, Universidad Pedagógica Nacional/ University of the West Indies, St. Augustine (2011-2012)

“I cannot recommend the Study Abroad Programme enough. At the risk of sounding like a cliché, there is no more effective way to learn a language than to be immersed in the country in which it is spoken.”

  • Tevin Gall, Participant. Study Abroad Programme- Université Michel de Montaigne (Bordeaux III) (2011-2012), and English Assistantship Programme in France (2013-2014)
