"My time at UCA has been a rewarding experience on many levels and I feel inspired and encouraged to explore new avenues of art, culture and learning. Being so far away from home has helped me to become more confident and aware of my strengths - living in another country, in a new teaching environment and culture, opens your mind to new possibilities."
"I attended the Open Day in Farnham and saw they had the perfect course for me. I would definitely recommend UCA to other international students as it's been a great experience and has helped me gain independence."
"Although I had lived abroad and travelled before, there is no experience that will ever match the Erasmus exchange one. Studying abroad is fun and challenging - something you can only understand once you have experienced it. There is no better way to immerse yourself in a new culture, make friends with people from all over the world and understand what student life really is. "
"During my Erasmus exchange trip I tried to travel as much as possible. This was one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to in my life."
