Laura García is a student in the Undergraduate Programme in Biotechnology. She studied abroad at Marquette University in the United States during the first semester of her fourth year. Find out more about her experience below.

Studying abroad is a once in a lifetime experience. I had the opportunity to study for a semester at Marquette University, in the state of Wisconsin. Milwaukee is a university city that's full of students, with people from different cultures and countries.

During my time there, I learned a lot and it was clear that the educational system in the United States is quite different from in Spain. In classes, they really emphasize oral and written expression. We did oral presentations, projects and papers regularly. I also prepared a poster to give an in-class presentation, something I hadn't had a chance to do yet.

I really grew professionally, and I met lots of people both from the United States and from abroad. I wanted to become truly integrated into American culture, and I made a lot of friends from the states that I still keep in touch with. Many cultures and people from different countries live together in Milwaukee, which was a culture shock. I was able to discover different ways of living, which helps to break stereotypes. During my time abroad, I was able to travel to nearby states such as Minnesota, I visited Milwaukee’s Natural Parks and I traveled to New York with American friends.

For anyone with the possibility of studying abroad, I definitely recommend doing so. An experience like this transforms you and makes you grow so much personally. There are multiple scholarships available for studying abroad. I was able to earn a Santander Grant, which gave me the possibility to go abroad".
