Semester Abroad in England

The Sun Setting Over Parliament and the Thames

"The importance of this program is hard to put into words -studying abroad was undoubtedly the best experience of my life. There were so many benefits to studying in England, but I feel that the most important were actually living and immersing myself in a completely different culture and gaining a sense of independence."
-Sarah Smith

I would definitely recommend study abroad in general, and of course with emphasis to England, to other Linfield students. The cultural, educational, and personal growing experiences of study abroad in England are very worthwhile and irreplaceable to me and in general."
