"Study abroad opens the world to you. Imagine studying hospitality and tourism management in Cyprus, Bangkok, Florence or Sydney with students from around the world, visiting important tourist destinations or learning about different international cuisines. You will return with a set of experiences that will last you a lifetime. Open yourself to the world and the world will open itself to you."
