The reason I was interested in a book about studying abroad is because of my daughter. As a young person who is about to go to College, and with a European Mother ( I was born in Germany), she is very aware of the possibilities and opportunities of studying abroad.
Still, I was not informed enough about the details to help her make a well-researched decision if she would decide to study out of the country, and help her to decide where that would be.
This guide is a great place to start getting the information needed to make these decisions.
Very well written, in a light conversational and entertaining tone, Girl Gone London’s book is a quick and comfortable read filled with plenty of detailed information. For example, I did not know that it was difficult for a student from the US to open a bank account in the UK, a very important point that needs to be kept in mind when you are planning on staying for more than 6 months in the UK.
I am glad that I was given a copy of this book to review, and I handed it as soon as I was done reading it, to my daughter, convinced that she will be able to make a more informed decision about what her educational future will look like, and what possibilities she has from here on out.
I thank the Author for giving me this peace of mind.
