I Learned More Than I Thought I Could

Studying abroad in Shanghai offered me an amazingly well-rounded experience. I had well-known and knowledgeable professors that offered me the opportunity to delve into the Chinese public healthcare system, the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Environmental Health in China, and begin learning Chinese which I ended up loving. On top of my classes, I made meaningful connections with my Chinese roommate and her friends and had a personal tour guide around Shanghai. In the short time I was there, I learned so much about the history, food, and culture while simultaneously having an incredibly fun time. Shanghai is a very fun city! Additionally, the IFSA staff were very supportive and worked hard to make sure our experience there was both smooth and meaningful. I would recommend this program to anyone.
