"The URSS experience has allowed me to branch out of the confines of the university's academic resources and travel to Vietnam to conduct research on a subject I was truly passionate about. I walked into the experience nervous, unsure and unprepared, yet by the end I have not only become acquainted with a new research method and new academic resources, but also gained a lot of confidence in myself and my own abilities.

As one of the biggest self-initiated projects I have embarked on during my academic journey, the URSS project has been very time-consuming and at times stressful. However, it has proved itself incredibly rewarding to finally be able to see the result of over two months of dedication and academic discovery at a showcase event by the end of the experience, especially when I am able to display an interesting aspect of my home culture to a wider audience."
