Learning about FSU's Gateway Programme made all my choices really easy

“I had always wanted to study abroad and was particularly interested in America but I was unsure where to start or how to go about things. Hearing and learning about FSU's Gateway Programme made all my choices really easy, as being able to start at home in London was something that really appealed to me. At first I was worried about getting all the necessary American qualifications like taking the SATs but have been given practice tests and a tutor to teach me how to pass the exams which are really helping. Being a part of the London Study Centre is so much fun, and although I don't live on campus I feel really at home and very much a part of the school community. I feel very safe in the knowledge that I am never just left to my own devices or to figure things out for myself; I am being given help to apply and receive my visa to study in America and there is always someone to answer any questions I have

I am really looking forward to rejoining all the friends I have made this year as we start our second year of college in Tallahassee together next Fall."
