Jane Wilkinson

My name is Jane Wilkinson and I am fourth year double majoring in Global Security and Justice and German Studies. I spent January of 2015 in Berlin, Germany with UVA in Berlin, and spent Spring 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland. For me, studying abroad was about gaining a competitive edge in the working world. My program actually had an internship component, and I was able to work with an international NGO that did advocacy at the UN Human Rights Council. I had my very own UN badge that gave me access to the Palace of Nations and other UN buildings in the area.

Jane Wall

My name is Jane Wall and I am a fourth year double majoring in Politics and Spanish. Studying abroad in Valencia, Spain was essential for my personal growth and will definitely help me succeed in my professional aspirations post-graduation. If I had not participated in the UVA in Valencia education abroad program, I would not have realized how capable I am of entering new environments and excelling in unfamiliar work conditions. While in Valencia, I had the opportunity to participate in a service learning internship where I taught conversational English at a local school.
