History Year Abroad Student Views:
- We were tested on the subject matter constantly which I was not used to but they also offered a lot more modules for American history than Warwick does.
- I have gained a lot of invaluable knowledge about American history that I hope will be reflected in my grades next academic year.
- I travelled a lot, made lots of new friends, joined the women's rugby team and also volunteered.
- I have gained a new level of maturity that will no doubt help me later in life.
- I got to study subjects outside of my degree such as mathematics and economics. I experienced and American perspective of world events and history. I value the freedom of choice I was given a lot as it made my studies much more enjoyable and allowed me to develop the areas I need for my future employment / want to learn about.
- By traveling throughout various states I got a first hand experience of how different the culture of each stage/region is and how it is impossible to generalise “the American lifestyle/way of being”.
- I participated in various sporting events from football to volleyball tournaments. Went to multiple NCAA sporting events. Experienced Greek Life and the University clubs such as Ski and Snowboarding Club.
