From Paris to the Arizona desert, Welsh students were on placements around the world when the coronavirus pandemic started.
Many were told: “You have to come back as soon as possible.”
Placements have either been postponed or cancelled with students now at home.
Maia Evans, 21, from Port Talbot was working as a teaching assistant near Paris.
“The children were great, my family was lovely and my French was improving massively. Then France shut down overnight,” she said.
