What does student life look life at the Harlaxton College Manor?

I had the incredible opportunity to study one semester in America and then one another in England with the exchange programme delivers by the University of Evansville. Indeed, within the same schoolyear abroad, it is possible to experience two totally different ways of life. To live in the Harlaxton College Manor means to benefit of a warm ambience with the American students from every part of the U.S. (not only from the University of Evansville). Thereby, students shared different perspectives and points of view which helped me to realize my own thought patterns resulting from my national identity. On a human scale and smaller than in Evansville, the campus of Harlaxton creates a great atmosphere and gathers students, as well as professors into gorgeous infrastructures. The Manor is witnessed of its rich stories on Britain’s history and helped students to learn about historical events. Indeed, to study in the Harlaxton Manor includes to learn about British history with required lectures and seminars. However, the level of this study is quite difficult thus it is important to ask for help if necessary. Furthermore, from the beginning students were separated into four distinct houses which determined our team (like the houses in Harry Potter). This way, students are expected to fight though sports as well as intellectual competitions such as football, dance or quizzes competitions. These activities were usually very appreciated by the students and built strong relationships between members of the same team. In addition, to experience England was originally an international purpose intended for discover European countries and their cultural differences. Indeed, each weekend the school proposed a travel within one European country for touristic discoveries and therefore we don’t have class on Fridays. Thus, I had several opportunities to explore a new country with American friends and to understand its economic importance within the European Union. On the other hand, although I enjoyed the benefits of the Manor, the English food from the refectory is not my favourite kind of meal. Finally, I strongly recommend students from the Paris School of Business who want to study abroad and particularly at the University of Evansville to continue their second semester at the Harlaxton College Manor in order to benefit of an international complementary experience and to experiment the cultural differences between the U.S and England. Indeed, this schoolyear abroad helped me to mature, to progress on my personal goals and to improve considerably my English skills. As a result, I feel more confident regarding my future professional goals and to get this opportunity to study one year abroad considerably enrich my personality.
