Hi guys,

I offered to help my younger sister out by searching for some schools where she could spend 1-2 exchange years. All these universities below are partner-universities of her current school therefore no fees plus living stipend (also admission not the normal route).

She is studying arts (english literature and the such like but also interested in media and pr work). I was just wondering whether somebody of you has any idea which university would be a good option?

My personal taste would be


all just to the fact that I know the names from BB recruiting..... therefore not a good metric

help me out please

You could add UoC (University of Chicago) to the list, but its definitely not for everybody.

I assume she is studying internationally, given it will be an exchange program?

I'd say Cal, as it is a big, traditional American university, has great weather (especially v U Chicago), and, IIRC, has excellent English and Journalism programs.

No one really looks at study abroad programs as a true educational experience, it's more about learning another culture. Send her to CU Boulder, UNC or one of the CA public schools.
