"One of my favorite parts of studying abroad at UOB is that we got placed in accommodations with current students. This meant that I could to live with people who have lived their whole life in the UK. It was a great way to learn more about the area I was living in and form friendships with people who weren’t just from the states!"

"From studying abroad, I feel that I have become more confident. Nothing makes a person’s confidence grow than having to befriend a flat full of people who have already spent a semester together."
