Carley talks about her Study Abroad experience, having spent a semester in Florence:
“I don’t think it’s possible to express the extent to which I have enjoyed this experience. Being in Florence was a phenomenal experience, it is a remarkable city which will stick with me as my second home for the rest of my life.”
“My love for Florence comes from the city, the culture and the food. The people were fantastic, the staff were excellent. It is safe to say my experience would not have been half as amazing without the work and care of everyone on the Richmond in Florence team. I learnt so much about life, Italy and art, it helped me to adapt and taught me how to immerse myself in another culture.”
“Any Study Abroad experience is what you make it, it is easy to have different experiences but I can happily say that I was extremely lucky. I made some amazing friends, met fantastic people, ate some delicious food and created the best memories.”
“I implore everyone, anyone reading this to seriously consider Florence as your next stop in your life. It was one hundred percent the best thing I have ever experienced and I cannot believe that it is over. I expect that it won’t be too long before I find a way to return.”
