"I had such a great experience that I returned to London and am now finishing up a master's degree. It was such a fulfilling experience, and I believe it helped me as a student by gaining experience in a different educational setting. Not to mention all that London has to offer! I also enjoyed the extra activities that were arranged for the group of us for the program."
