Participating in the student exchange programme was one of the best decisions of my life! I went to the Kingston University London for the fall semester of 2014 and I must say it was a tremendous experience. Learning psychology from the other side of the world had definitely impacted my academic perspective. Being able to share the British culture was even better than I had anticipated. I had learnt so much from my new friends and teachers of...

Ava comes across as polite, though a little bit taciturn. A graduate student in Applied Psychology, she exchanged in the 2010/2011 fall semester (Semester 1) to the University of Guelph, in Canada.

Living on Mary Seacole Hall was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The Hall is like a family with friendly and helpful sistas. I will never forget the generous hospitality offered to me. The reception that I received was truly overwhelming and this gave me a sense of belonging. Being a part of the orientation, and the First Year Experience (FYE) program, also gave me a great opportunity to...
