“One of the most rewarding experiences I have taken from my time abroad was the opportunity to intern with an MP of the British Parliament. Although taking classes in London allowed me to gain a greater understanding of the educational process, the ability to work in London provided me with the opportunity to receive information and experience first-hand regarding the British government and political process.”

--Elizabeth Poulin
