Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Traveled

Personal recommendation:
One more year to get the degree...but working in a firm that has any sort of agreement with the university.



FINAL COMMENTS

Travelling is very cheap from England (going to Majorca is even cheaper than from Spain!). The best you can do is to open your mind. The fact that one culture is different does not mean that is worse. Do not compare it with yours, but try to enjoy it!
