Student testimonials

  • “What I liked best about Portugal was that the people there were friendly and always made sure that everybody feels comfortable. Food was the second-best part, I had the chance to eat seafood almost every day which I quite enjoyed as they provided a healthy portion for us.”

    Veronika, Health & Social Care student, Porto
  • “Pova De Varzim is a beautiful place and it is quiet and not like English cities. The people that we met along the way were all really kind and nice and it made me realise how accepting people are in Portugal compared to some places in the UK.”

    Jess, Health & Social Care student, Porto
