Yes, but if I were to do it again, I would choose a place the compatible with my learning style, which I do not believe the University of Leicester was.

I learned to stick with things even when they are hard, no matter what the struggle is there is always a way out. I learned to adapt to British culture and it was the best thing I couldve done. It was extremely worthwhile. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review
