Qi Ren, Summer 2019 Participant
I really enjoy the program. I get to know other students around the world and become friends with them. We travel around the U.K., and it is a travel experience unlike any of my previous travels.

The schedule has Friday off, so the weekend is the best time for long distance travel.
