“The study abroad program of the University of Colombo has given me the opportunity to be able to say I have had the experience of a life time. It has enriched my undergraduate learning experience immensely.  This program has given me the opportunity to meet other students of various cultures, and has taught me to accept and understand cultures and perspectives different to my own. As for personal development, along with the freedom and independence you gain when studying abroad and living alone, this enhanced my self-confidence and self-esteem. This program truly has been an enriching experience both academically and personally.”
