"I would recommend students to go on exchange whenever it is possible as it helps one to practice the social skills, and their abilities to plan ahead and enhance critical thinking skills. It also provides the opportunity to learn outside the classroom, while immersing in a total diverse and different environment. "

Exchange Duration: 2013-14 Full year

“I would proudly say that studying abroad in the University of Kent even though for just half a year is probably the best thing that has happened to me and I am so glad that I took the step to get out of my comfort zone.”
