Kimberly: I knew when I was applying for colleges that I had every intention of studying abroad. The second I saw any information about traveling, I was at that meeting, even if it was my freshman year and way too early to go. I had previously been to the United Kingdom when I was younger and knew it was a place I was comfortable with, so when I found Academics Program International, I knew it was going to be a great fit.
I decided to go with that program because there was a Resident Director that would be in the area and accessible via phone if we ever had any trouble. There were also scheduled excursions which I was very excited to be given the opportunity to go on. Lastly, the arts program that I would be attending, while new, fit with what I was studying at my home university.
