International Students have a brilliant combination of a passion for learning and adventurous nature. We should not be surprised that so many beloved celebrities, who have often lived extraordinary lives, are former International Students.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow studied in an exchange programme in her high school years, at Talavera De La Reina, Spain.
“I went to a small town outside Talavera de la Reina and I had the most wonderful experience. It really changed my life. Spain became a second home. It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old.”
Former American President Bill Clinton studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University in the UK in 1968.
Bill Clinton is not the only celebrity who chose to study at the prestigious Oxford University. Novelist Harper Lee attended Oxford University’s Graduates’ Summer School in 1948, some 12 years prior to ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ being published.
