University of Warwick in London: Warwick Summer School

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
First of all, I learnt a lot from academic perspective. I gained deep knowledge about my course (International Business and Finance) which for sure will be useful for my future studies. When it comes to social side, it is even more worthwhile than academic, cause that is a unique chance where you expose yourself to such a multicultural environment, make new friends, discover new country, new places, improve your language and so on. It is definitely worthwhile to spend your summer in such a productive way.
