"I can’t believe how easy it is to travel around the UK and Europe, it is also really cheap! I have visited so many different places such as Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Wales! The University also runs fun trips at the weekends which are a great way to meet new people and travel the UK on a low budget. I have traveled to Stratford-Upon- Avon, Blackpool, Cambridge and Cardiff with the University and made lots of new friends from around the world."
