مرحبا/Hola! I’m Alice and I’m in my 3rd year at Durham studying Spanish and Arabic. I’ll be spending the first five months of my year abroad learning Arabic at the Qasid Institute and the Ali Baba International Center in Amman, Jordan. After this I will be working as an office assistant for six months in the Delengua language school in Granada.

Hey! I’m Jane and I’ve just finished my second year studying Law at Durham. I’ll be spending my third year at the Université de Rouen just north-west of Paris doing pretty much the same thing (but the catch is that it’s all in French). Check out my blog for info on having lectures in a language that is altogether foreign to you, law exchanges and some guaranteed mishaps documented for your entertainment.

Hello! My name is Nick and I am a mature Physics student. I am about to replace the third year of my four year masters degree at Durham university with a year of study at McMaster in Ontario, Canada. I have never even been to Canada but I have heard good things from everyone I have spoken to so I can’t wait to spend a full year there. Wish me luck!
