Studying abroad in Lausanne, a beautiful city located in the Lac Léman region of Switzerland, has proven to be an incredible opportunity for my personal, academic, and professional growth. Living and studying in a French speaking city is allowing me to develop my French language skills while enhancing my knowledge in the disciplines of Political Science and Public Policy with a regional focus. Lausanne is a beautiful and lively city with two universities situated in close proximity, attracting students from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. This unique environment has given me the chance to encounter new languages and cultures, and develop my planning and problem-solving skills as I navigate new spaces and engage in new cultural experiences. The natural beauty of the country, along with the rich culture and kindness of the people makes Lausanne a wonderful destination for those interested in studying abroad, especially in French!
