Being away from your country is both something exciting and something really stressful. My year in Manchester is my first year abroad and my first year in an other city than Lyon, my hometown. I have to say that is was quite difficult, and it still sometimes is.

I arrived in Manchester on 8th September, coming from Paris Beauvais airport. I will have to be honest, the goodbyes were emotional! However, I just had to remind myself I was incredibly lucky to fly to another country to study for a year, which was so overwhelming but equally exciting!
