I did the Sussex program for physics through UCEAP and it is by far the most academically challenging task I have had to date. The learning pace was much too fast for me and some personal issues came up during my trip that caused my focus to waver. There is quiz after quiz, test after test and I had no chance to grasp concepts before it was too late it felt like. The social life was great, everyone around was friendly and even though I struggled, I wouldn’t change that experience for the world. If you have second thoughts or if money is a concern, know that money can always be payed back and experiences are forever!
