A few years ago, I had the marvelous opportunity to work and study in the UK, with funding from the UK via the British Council. It was a great experience and one that I would recommend to anybody. It was also not an experience unique to me since many others have had the same wonderful opportunity. The British Council has made a short film documenting how other scholars have fared in these types of experiences. The short film can be seen below.
Longer versions can be found on the British Council’s Youtube page.
