"I have learned so much about the language, culture and myself during my semester abroad in Costa Rica. Having the opportunity to study and travel at the same time is an extremely valuable experience I'll never forget. Pura Vida!"
It was my first time traveling overseas and what an adventure I had.

�Studying abroad was life changing for me. It was the best collegiate decision I made. I learned more about myself than at any other time in my life. I took marketing classes while I studied at Edge Hill University."
While in Chile I learned Spanish in classes and I applied it into the real world. As weeks went by I was able to communicate with my host family and learned so much about Chile, their lives, and their culture.

I chose Prague last minute - as in, the day before the application deadline. It was absolutely the right choice for me and I sincerely suggest taking a chance on a new place. Just go and learn all you can with the time you have!
