How did you learn about this opportunity?

I had always known I wanted to go to London to study abroad and after speaking with an abroad adviser, I decided IES: Study London was the best fit for me. I also found out that other friends of mine had been on this program and had great things to say about it.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

My semester abroad has definitely been my favorite semester. I have been to more places than I could have ever imagined traveling to and met such great people in my travels. My time abroad is something I will never forget and the memories I have made are some of the best memories I have. Getting to explore London has been wonderful and there is always something new to do. I feel as though I really am living in London and not just a student visiting another country.

How did this experience impact you academically?

I heard mixed things about the academics before coming abroad. While many people who go abroad study through a University in that country, my program has their own facility with professors that they bring in. The professors I have encountered are all amazing and I really feel as though I am learning so much about London culture while taking my classes.

What are your career goals and plans?  How did this experience impact them?

I aspire to be a clinical psychologist one day. My time abroad did not have much to do with my education of psychology, but while being abroad I have really gotten to learn more about people in different societies and cultures and that has broadened my knowledge of people in general.

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

I would definitely recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students. This program is not too heavily focused on one area of study and allows you to pick the exact courses you want with little limitations.
