It is literally the best experience you can have and you will make lifelong friends. The program completely changed my perception of the world and working with other cultures so it is priceless. Everything was so well set out and I learnt extremely valuable tools in terms of learning to work with other cultures. I made some amazing friends and… the lecturers were super interesting. Overall it was just a great time.

A truly life-changing, perspective altering, incredibly humbling experience that I would absolutely participate in again if given the chance. [The students’] enthusiasm for learning is second to none with relation to anything I have ever seen, and encouraged me to be the best teacher I could possibly be. You will not regret participating in this program. It will change your life, both professionally and personally, and open your eyes to a completely different way of life.

The experience of living in another culture was just so eye opening in terms of diversity and the people I met whilst there. It provided me with the clarity and confidence to pursue anything I wish to do. In turn creating some of the best friendships and connections whilst I was abroad. Being able to immerse myself within the daily life of Barcelona, just showed how I can adapt and apply myself to anything. … I definitely have returned home with the determination to pursue work overseas in the near future. Getting out of my comfort zone allowed me to see the opportunities that are beyond Australia.
