My experience as a student in France was nothing short of life changing. I was drawn so far out of my comfort zone, enabling me to grow and learn more about myself than I thought possible in 5 months. Attending ESSCA University in Angers, France was the most eye opening experience, not only to the new culture, but to what my future holds. Still to this day, I keep in contact with my friends from all over Europe and know I will always have a place to stay when I inevitably go back.

My experience as a student in Rome was nothing but extraordinary, the feeling of walking on the streets of an ancient civilization and being witness of their buildings and history was definitely a gift. John Cabot University opened its doors to me and it gave me the warmest of the welcomes. I will always be thankful to NU for this opportunity. I cannot think in a better place for having this experience.

I truly feel that I have a life in Europe, waiting for me whenever I want to go back. After the experience I had, I cannot imagine staying in one country for the rest of my life. There are still so many things I want to do in France alone, that it is hard to imagine everything I could do in Spain, Italy, Switzerland, etc. If you are on the fence, please just go! You might regret it if you don’t.
