Program Reviews:
Augustus Charles Cobb, Academic Year 2013 Participant
My favorite part of the program at the University of Kent was how easy it was to get involved with clubs and societies. It provided a great way to meet people and go see parts of the country for cheap that otherwise I would have not had the opportunity to see.

Academic Year 2016 Participant
My favorite part of living abroad is all of the traveling and the friendships that I made while abroad. I'm still in contact with a couple of people I met while abroad and I will be able to take all of the magnificent experiences with me to look back on throughout my life. There was so much to see and do. I will miss it a lot.

Grace E Carlson, Spring 2017 Participant
I found the academics to be most rewarding. I studied art history and my classes took field trips to the National Gallery in London to see paintings and works of art that I had only read about in textbooks. The professors were all great, and I really valued what I learned this semester.
