Studying in North America

“The universities in California made a lasting impression on us with their large campuses and access to a multitude of sporting and leisure activities. Even after our engaging psychology courses and a surfing class every Monday morning, we still had time for road trips to cities like San Diego and San Francisco as well as through unique landscapes along highway No.1”
