My favorite part of this program was definitely the opportunity to meet new friends from an entirely new part of the world. The University of Stirling had a high percentage of exchange students, so not only was I meeting Scots, but students from all around the globe! We all learned to get along and work together towards similar goals, and everyone was ultra-supportive of one another. I made several life-long friends that I plan to visit as an adult.

Take as many chances as you can, don't be afraid of unfamiliar situations, and never stop exploring the new experiences that might come your way.

I learned that finding a balance between academic work and personal interests is critical, especially when working within a new system and being in a place where travel is very available. It's very important to figure out what you need to do and what is expected of you in your coursework first, then make time for travelling, being social, and other personal interests.
