King's College London: London - Direct Enrollment & Exchange

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I gained more independence, got to travel across Europe and immerse myself in new cultures. It was an intense experience, packed at every moment with discoveries and delights. I only regret my time there was so short.
