What Do Our Alumni Say?
Testimonial quote icon

It has been one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in my life. Honestly, I don’t want to sound cheesy, but I’ve met so many people and I’ve learned so much history and geography, especially in my class, because everyone is from all around the world, and I’m so glad! I have learned more in two weeks than I have done in the past 11 years at school.

I have enjoyed everything, especially talking with people – communication and meeting new cultures and learning about their traditions has been amazing, as well as getting to know the mentors, they’re so cool! I’ve learned so much about applications and universities and just how normal these students are – they’re not different from us, even though they study at Oxford or Cambridge. They will guide you through your experience and will help you with anything you need. (Read Teddy’s full blog)
