My initial exchange experience: a brief spiel – by Ella Coleman

“I suppose for me this was an opportunity to ‘grow up’ and hopefully to erase any left-over teenage ignorance. So I set off, leaving behind my sobbing mother. I felt cruel leaving her, but I knew that this was something I had to do for me. I had to leave the bitter, angsty teen behind […]

California; College – by Tristan Grant-Preece

“A high proportion of your time at college is spent around other people. I rarely had any private time, which at first seems odd, but it grows on you. It was like compacting a normal friendship length of a few years into a few months including all the emotions and good times.” To read the […]

Semester Exchange at the University of Valencia – by Clare Smyth
