Studying abroad at: Pontificia Universidad Catòlica del Perú in Lima, Peru

Duration: Full academic year

Why Peru? "I knew that I wanted to study abroad, but I wasn’t entirely sure where, at first. My Montserrat course was about Latin American film and art, and it got me particularly interested in Latin America. Combined with my interest in the Spanish language and anthropology, Peru seemed like the perfect location for me to enhance my understanding of Latin America and its people, as well as hone my Spanish language skills and anthropological perspective."
