"My study abroad in Canada was an amazing experience that enabled me to make and maintain friendships with people from all over the world. It also strengthened my CV allowing me to secure a 3 month summer internship at a FTSE 100 company."

"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.”

"Going on exchange was probably one of the best decisions I have ever taken. Exchange for me has meant discovery and experience. I stepped out my comfort zone and my time abroad shaped me as a person. I learnt about and from different cultures, I fell in love with Asian food and I learnt to be a traveller around the cities and country sides of South East Asia. I met people from everywhere in the world, and I learnt Singlish by getting close to locals. My year abroad was also a journey to the discovery of myself, my passions and potentials. (My experience has shaped my future path so deeply that next year I will spend another semester in Singapore as part of my MSc.) Exchange enables you to do the most disparate experiences, but only if you take the chance and leave."
