|Easy to live within my budget:|
|Zoe Ellen Schreiner, Spring 2015 Participant|
|The school system was difficult because it was so extremely different to UND's approach to academics. Overall, it was one of the best semesters of my life and I would recommend anyone to study abroad. DO IT! You will not regret it!|
|Chelsea Rae Johnson, Fall 2014 Participant|
|The months I spent at the University of Leicester were some of the greatest of my life. I met people and experienced things that have completely changed me as a person and opened my eyes to how much the world has to offer. The program was well organized, affordable, and the staff both here and and in Leicester were always willing to do whatever they could to help. I would highly recommend a semester at the University of Leicester to anyone considering studying abroad.|
