Quentin Jenkins ’23
Studying abroad in the United Kingdom at the University of Birmingham was truly an enriching experience. As an exchange student, I was able to fully immerse myself in the country and the rich history and culture there. I studied at the school of social policy, and I was able to engage in critical conversations that expanded my perspective by learning about different social issues that are prevalent in the United Kingdom and other countries across Europe.
One of my favorite parts about studying abroad was the opportunity to travel to 7 other countries while I was there. I visited Italy, Greece, France, Malta, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain, and all of these countries played a role in my professional and personal development. I appreciate the opportunity I had to deepen my cross-cultural awareness!
My study abroad program experience was life changing, and I am so grateful to now have friendships with so many new people across the globe! My six months in the UK helped me realize that there truly is so much more to explore outside of America, and I recommend everyone that’s interested to study abroad at Pitzer!
