Hear from Linda, a 2nd year student who participated in a Global Learning Expedition we designed and delivered for the University of Exeter in February 2021.

“As someone who has been part of several online programs before, this one has been extremely effective at making connections between peers & staff. Usually, I feel exhausted and am glad to be done with a program. However, this one is a clear exception & I’m proud to have been a part of this program.”
