My SLV.Global Experience
"My time in Sri Lanka was absolutely incredible. It is such a unique opportunity to really immerse yourself in a new culture whilst learning about global health perspectives and promoting positive mental health. So many of the things that can seem challenging are actually the best bits; being part of a multi-cultural team, living in a homestay, working in multiple, varied projects and learning about new cultures and languages. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore a new country, meet mental-health professionals and play a part in supporting local, sustainable projects - I highly recommend it!
Being an ambassador is great, because every time I talk with people about my placement I get excited. I'm reminded of why I went in the first place, all that I learned and I get renewed passion and motivation in continuing my studies in Psychology. I understand signing up for something like this can seem daunting and so I want to give you a chance I'd love to have had - to speak to someone at the same university who's already done it!"
