Paige Fielding - CCSU - BA (Hons) Film and Media


“I chose CCSU because it was close enough to places I dreamt of visiting and luckily managed to: New York City, Boston and Washington DC. Connecticut was the best decision I could have made. I am so grateful for the opportunity. For months I was so nervous and this made me not actually believe it was happening, but now I would do anything to do it all over again!”

Clara in Whistler, Canada

"Studying abroad helped to widen my knowledge while still gaining transferable skills to my course! Individually it helped me grow and gain independence and I would recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to study abroad. For me, the best part about studying abroad was having the chance to travel see the culture of another country, which was just amazing!"
