“GSE created a comfortable environment for students to assimilate with a foreign place. The housing arrangements, location, and Onsite Program Director were beyond satisfactory. All of these elements made it possible for me to transition into Parisian life without any worries. My GSE Onsite Program Director, Audrey, was a blessing and a vital reason why my experience in Paris was excellent. I am quite satisfied with my experience studying through GSE, and I know I picked the right company to study abroad with.”
