Studying abroad is a great opportunity to travel, widen the content of your degree and to expose yourself to a different culture and university lifestyle. It has also made me more independent and responsible, as well as broadening my political knowledge. Being able to discuss issues with a range of people from different backgrounds has been interesting.

Prague is a nice place for a wander. When you leave the centre you can walk in any direction and be surrounded by old classical buildings. The stories my lecturer told, that the Czechs used to be the richest in Europe, seem a little more believable when you see the beauty of Prague and nearly every other town you visit.

I learnt so much in my year away at Monash University and really matured as an individual. It offered me a life experience I don't feel I could have gained had I studied my whole degree at Nottingham. I would encourage anybody with the opportunity to go on exchange to take advantage of it!
