In my first year, I decided to join the GLAD programme because I wanted the opportunity to develop my skills through friendly competition with others. The programme consisted mainly of group work, and my group worked with students from countries such as India, Uganda and South Korea, etc. I had enrolled at APU but had been forced to study online only and had not been able to engage in international exchange as much as I would have liked, so this programme was a great opportunity for me to broaden my exchange relationships and my knowledge. Of course, there were difficulties such as language barriers and different ways of thinking, but what I gained through learning with them was much greater. I gained a multifaceted perspective through discussions with students from different cultural backgrounds, as well as the pleasure of starting something new and a vision for the future. If you are not sure what your goals are at APU, you should definitely try GLAD. It will definitely be a good experience that will give you something useful.
