Whether it is one year, a semester, jetting off for some voluntary experience or attending a summer school, studying abroad is TOTALLY WORTH IT! I am writing this from my own perspective after my recent experience of studying abroad with the University of Worcester. I began with the process of applying for a semester abroad, then the interview and finally I studied in another country. Keep reading to hear about my experiences and top tips on studying abroad.
I cannot believe I am writing this second blog knowing I fly home in under 7 weeks! It’s crazy to think I have already been here in the US for 10 weeks. I have to say, the American food has definitely won me over – it’s amazing!
I’m Jenny, a second year Education Studies student and new student blogger. I’m currently writing my very first blog post from the other side of the world! I was given a great opportunity to come and study abroad at Federation University in Australia. I cannot thank University of Worcester enough for this trip of a lifetime.
I am currently sat in a cute coffee shop writing for the student blog for the first time. I am currently studying at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the US (The name of the university makes no sense as both Indiana and Pennsylvania are states but there we go).
As some of you know, I’ve spent the last couple of months on an Erasmus exchange, in Barcelona.
On the 17th of June, I had my last exam and along with the last goodbyes, my Erasmus experience finished. We’ve received the final results, so now we can finally start enjoying the long-awaited summer (especially since in Leuven, Belgium, I haven’t seen proper sun in almost 5 month…similar to England, I think).
It doesn’t matter whether it’s just for a semester, one year, or the whole degree, living abroad will definitely and inevitably change you.
Hi, everyone! Saludos from Barcelona, Spain! That’s right…I’m still here, I have two more months until I finish my semester abroad and I can say without a doubt that this has been THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!
