BA English with Study in North America
Year Abroad Destination: USA

I spent the second year of my degree in New York at Vassar College. As a whole, the year was probably the best experience of my life. I spent 11 months in the U.S. without returning to the UK (not even for Christmas!). I travelled to approximately 16 states and multiple cities, while assimilating with a completely different culture and higher educational system. The year gave me opportunities to meet new people from a diverse range of backgrounds, advance my CV and develop my independence when logically making travel arrangements. There is no other course like the ESNA program. The opportunity to spend a year abroad, while still completing a three-year degree is unique. The quality of my degree has been immensely enriched by my experience at Vassar College.
