    I am grateful to have had this opportunity to go to England for school, yet still have had the time for traveling to new places, seeing new things, and learning what each place has to offer. I believe that this experience has changed my perspective of the world and I cannot wait to see where else it will take me.

    I absolutely loved studying abroad at Edge Hill University. It was an amazing semester where I had an opportunity to explore British Culture as well as take amazing courses. The team at Edge Hill was absolutely amazing; Jason and Bill are 100% invested in students and their goals and education. I could not have chosen a better location to study abroad.

    The most valuable part of the experience for me was the culture. To immerse myself in another culture having never left the country let me see all the ways our cultures were different, and all the ways they were the same. By seeing how an entirely new place did things let me appreciate where I am more, and helped remind me how truly big this world is.

    My experience in Scotland was definitely one of the best events in my time at ISU. It was my first time out of the country, and it was so incredibly magical to be able to witness such historical and beautiful landmarks. I met so many incredible people, and the culture was so beautiful. I definitely plan on going back to Scotland.

    My Study Abroad experience was very eye opening. I did more things in Ecuador than I thought I could ever do. I pushed myself and persevered through the language difficulties and in the end came through proud and changed. Through being there I found my passion. If it weren't for my Study Abroad experience I don't think I would be chasing my dreams right now.

    I loved Stirling and the Uni. I made lasting friendships, explored a new country, experienced the Scottish culture and became more independent. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

    Studying abroad was an amazing experience to say the least. In five months I was able to experience various cultures while learning more about myself throughout the journey. By studying abroad I gained knowledge on how to interact with different people in an unfamiliar place. This not only prepared me throughout my collegiate years but also in my years after college in my career. I loved it!

    Boarding my plane to Barcelona, Spain, I would have never guessed my life would have changed so drastically. Seeing so many diverse people and being engulfed in so much culture was breathtaking. I have met so many people from around the world and studying abroad changed who I am today, it made me open my eyes to the beautiful world outside on the United States!

    My experience living in Prague and travelling Europe was both eye-opening and inexplicably transformational. I learned more about myself and the world through my trip than any single experience I have ever had. My eyes were opened to so many different perspectives that I had never even considered, and seeing them while travelling to some of the most beautiful places in the world made it better!

    Although it can be stressful trying to get everything organized, studying abroad is worth it just to see ideas different cultures have to offer. My experience was academically fulfilling but not too stressful and thanks to the great staff at Maynooth, I made lots of friends and had some great adventures.
