Please find quotes and videos below from our previous ambassadors about their experiences on a GCU study visit:

"The China trip with GCU in 2011 was one of the best experiences of my life.

Being a part-time student, to that point I hadn’t been heavily involved in student life, and meeting new people in the Uni. The trip to China completely changed that, and I have made some amazing friends. Add to that – each and every day was filled full of the most amazing activities and attractions to enjoy.

If I could recommend one thing for my fellow part-time students to do this year, it would be to apply to go to China. Put everything into it, and get yourself on that flight. You won’t regret it.” Andrew Lawson, Level 3 Business & Management.

“As a first year student, I didn't know many people at the university and wanted to become more involved with university life. I've always wanted to travel abroad, see different parts of the world, experience new cultures and different ways of life...and believe me, going to China was certainly that!

I had the opportunity to do and see things I would never have done if it hadn't been for the amazing hospitality friendships and organisation of the Chinese staff and students. The trip to China with the university was, for me, an experience of a life time and one which I would jump at, if I had the opportunity of, repeating.” Linda Duncan, Level 2 Physiotherapy.
