The most rewarding factor of this program was the planned visits of professional companies in London. It gave students an insight into the overseas business world, an invaluable opportunity that allowed us to speak directly with employees who had been in our same position in their youth.
My favorite part of the program was being able to actually sit and talk with my informational interviewer person one-on-one. I learned so much from her and really got to have some insight on traveling and working in the UK.
My favorite part of this program was having the opportunity to explore London with my peers! We visited major tourist sites, walked through beautiful markets, and wandered everywhere in between! The chance to travel and explore London was absolutely incredible, and being able to share this journey with my fellow Jayhawks leaves me with amazing memories with new friends!
