The highlight of my course is definitely all the extra things that you can do whilst studying.

My arts major is Italian and as part of that course we were encouraged to take part in the Treviso study tour. We spent four weeks studying language and the European union in a little town in the hills of Treviso in northern Italy.

It was a fantastic experience, which I would definitely recommend to everyone.

We did two units of study across four weeks. It was a great way to learn because it was an intensive course, where we focused on one subject at a time, and all the information we learnt really sunk in because we were studying subjects that related to where we were. The other fantastic thing was that we were in Italy over summer, eating delicious food, learning Italian and soaking up all the amazing culture.

Learning the Italian language, getting to practice it, whilst studying in Italy was definitely something that I will take away from my university experience forever.
