I really feel that my study abroad experience in Spain was in many ways pivotal in helping me get to where I am now. Now, I am about to begin a one year Master's programme in Latin American Studies at King's College London. Studying abroad gave me the confidence, skills, and desire to pursue my studies to a higher level, as well as to travel and explore the world without hesitation or fear of failure. It gave my applications for further study a competitive edge in more ways than one.

Most importantly, for myself anyway, I find I am now more adaptable and more open to new cultures and ways of life, which in our increasingly globalized and multicultural world is something of inestimable value.
