Student Testimonials

Ching Yee Tan

My semester abroad was the breath of fresh air I needed. I needed a shake-up, and what a shake-up it was. I met the most amazing people, backpacked all around Europe and still achieve the required 24 credit points. I would do it again in a heartbeat, and I definitely recommend it. So yeah, it is an Exchange Program, but it has the potential to be so much more. I’ve been afflicted with an insatiable wanderlust and appetite for new places and cultures. It was a life changing experience for me, and had I let the usual excuses prevent me from heading out to Leicester (UK), I would not be the person I am today.  So if you would like to travel and immerse yourself in new cultures, there is no excuse for you not to head down to the Study Abroad office in Hackett Hall today!

The Student Exchange program is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students, including international students.
