"Study abroad has given me multiple opportunities, especially to grow professionally and personally. It has allowed me to study different topics, meet new and amazing friends and travel. It has been one of the best episodes while at City University and I would not change it. It’s an invaluable experience that I would do over and over again."

- Marta Carrasco Mateu, BSc Business Studies
