Rebecca Martin

BSc Hons Int Travel&Tourism FT

I have been having the best time so far and have met so many amazing people from different countries.

For my study year abroad, I decided to study at Florida Universitaria in Valencia, Spain. I can definitely say that I had the best time of my life studying and living in Valencia.

I got the opportunity to meet and make friends with people from all over Europe and I got to experience a different culture and language from my own.

I had many opportunities to travel and visit other cities such as Madrid, Alicante, and Lisbon.

I also got to try new food such as Paella which actually originated in Valencia. While living in Valencia, I was able to improve my level of Spanish and speak more confidently with locals.

While studying at the university, I was able to learn subjects that were not being taught at my home university and the staff were amazing. I was able to grow as a person and boost my confidence.

I hope to return to Valencia in the near future and meet up with my new friends that I have met throughout this journey.

I have been having the best time so far and have met so many amazing people from different countries.

The city is amazing, with so much to do and there is many opportunities to travel and explore my host country.
