"My time spent on the International Summer School was easily some of the best three weeks I have experienced in my life. The history pathway offered an intellectually stimulating group of lectures that broadened my understanding of studying history and the many facets that a student of history has at their disposal. Aside from the educational portion of the program, the trip to London was a wonderful way to break the ice between all of the students while exploring London together. Meeting people from over thirty different countries is something I will never be able to forget. Everyone brings their own experiences and views, with opinions that force us to open our minds and delve out of our comfort zones. I highly recommend the University of Exeter Summer School to anyone that wants an intellectual, cultural, and social experience abroad that is not only affordable but also rewarding in every aspect of the word."
