Amazing Year Abroad

I had an incredible year abroad in Leeds. I study Mechanical Engineering, and the program and classes available at the university were really great and filled all of the requirements that I needed. The social scene is really exciting there too! The city center is super close to the uni and the city is full of university students, so you always feel like you are around people your age and that there's always somewhere to go to every night. I'm also really glad I chose to go abroad with IFSA. They were super helpful with sorting out visa forms and housing and classes before I left, and were super useful while I was over. They even called me when I was sick to make sure I knew how to see a doctor! Overall, the university was beautiful and very prestigious, and IFSA as support and staff were incredible as well. If I were to go abroad again, I would definitely use IFSA again.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I were to do the same program all over again, I would try and live in housing with other international students. I found it kind of difficult to settle in and figure everything out on my own, even though it was helpful in improving my sense of independence. I know that if I were to have lived with other people that were in the same situation that I was, it would have been an easier transition.
