What would you say to a student considering this study abroad program or study abroad in general?
I had an overwhelmingly positive academic experience and would highly recommend studying abroad in the location that you're studying academically. Relevant resources including manuscripts and artifacts were readily available near by (for example, I was able to look at the physical manuscripts in Cambridge's Parker Library that I was writing papers about for my Paleography and Codicology class, and travel to locations related to my spring JP topics). Additionally, studying abroad provided me with excellent academic contacts and invaluable information regarding potential graduate programs.
