Elise Champion studied on exchange at the University of Edinburgh in Semester 2 of 2016. She shares a 4 minute video recapping the places she visited during her exchange.
Amid the Kodak moments and memories you’ll tell your kids about, there is a part to exchange that in a sense is at the very heart of it: studying abroad.
