The experience of studying abroad is one that most students cherish. Studying abroad provides a student with a new world-view, new friends, and memories to last a lifetime.

Lynne Bialas, University of Rochester- Psychology major, studied at Birkbeck- University of London in the Fall of ’99.

"Something special happens while travelling and studying abroad. Not only can you experience new cultures which lay at your doorstep but the depth of personal understanding one achieves surpasses one's greatest hopes and expectations. In this unique adventure you learn more about who you are and where you're from than you do from any other experience. Open up the world because there are marvelous surprises that await you. London is a diverse metropolis bringing together ideas from all over the world creating an intellectual stew that is very conducive to learning and growth. Studying at Birkbeck was a new experience that taught me to be self-motivated in my own studies and the value of being involved and excited about what I was learning."
