In addition to the high
quality of UCL, its location
and the language used were ideal for
my study abroad experience. If people
in the US have heard of it, they have
invariably heard good things.
London is a wonderful city for students.
Museums for any subject I could want
to see have been fascinating. I have
lived in Prankerd House which provides
a quiet and comfortable environment
in which to live and study. When not
studying I participate in both the gliding
and stage crew societies. I attend the
theatre, I visit museums, and I keep in
touch with friends and family at home.
