Of her experience in Cambridge, Haiyan comments "I'm very grateful that I had the opportunity to study in Cambridge. This one-year experience is casting great positive influence on my life. For one thing, in Cambridge, I enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere of originality and prospectiveness. I could let my thoughts fly there. I have a broader view of the amazing world and a more flexible thinking pattern than before. Cambridge offered me great diversity, for example, classmates and friends who bring with them various cultures and thinking modes from different parts of the world, various choices of courses and seminars which helped to broaden my horizon etc. In other words, Cambridge enhanced my international understanding."
