Passport and visa

France

My university in France has a strong partnership with London South Bank University which gave me the opportunity to come and study here. Living in London and experiencing a new culture is great. My course has allowed me to carry out a research project and gain employment in Brazil so I'm there for the Football World Cup 2014!
