I have thoroughly enjoyed attending my exchange program there. I have met friends for life and I have grown in confidence with my academic studies with studying abroad as an exchange program student. As there are loads of supportive people to go to, and everyone is willing to listen. I highly recommend students to take their exchange program there.
