University of Warwick in London: Warwick Summer School

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Since it was my first ever trip abroad, and alone, i had a great deal of things to learn from that made me as a person really different. I learned how to engage with people from cultures from all around the world and this course gave me an exposure to the cultural diversity that i would never have experienced on my own. It was definitely worthwhile!

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
