"I applied to Inverness College UHI to experience life in the Highlands. From the first weekend meeting up with other international students, I began to enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the small town of Inverness and immerse myself in the vibrancy of Scottish culture.

I made friends with other girls from Germany, Sweden and France, and we have so much fun seeking out live traditional music, trying craft breweries, and talking about our experience here. It has been a relaxing term, and a change of pace from my home university in the U.S. I love taking the train to nearby towns, and I fall deeper in love with the landscape every time."
