Last summer I did both sessions of the UCL Summer School where I obtained extra credits which transferred over to my home institution, allowing me to graduate a semester early. What started off as a simple strategy to graduate early, turned into one of the best summers of my life! From the first moments it began, UCL staff made me feel so welcome. They organised fun activities for us to meet other people and explore the gorgeous Bloosmbury area, and that was how I was able to meet the group of people who soon became my very close friends and who I'm still in contact with to this day. In fact, 3 of us just reunited in Paris the other day, almost 7 months later! In addition to the fun and freedom I had out and about in London, I also loved my time in class. I took Literary London in session 1 and Fairytales and their Retellings in session 2. I learned so much from my professors, who were experts in the course and fostered such rich and generous conversations. What I also loved about the courses was being able to leave the classroom and learn so much more about the subject but interacting directly with London's rich history. I have nothing but positive things to say about UCL Summer and I only wish I could live it all again!
