Overall Experience
I learned how to completely immerse myself in a different city halfway around the world. To live completely on my own whilst learning a new culture. I learned the key to traveling and seeing new things and learning to enjoy every single second of it. - University of Rhode Island
I can't even begin to explain the amazing experience I had. I would do everything again in a heart beat. - Indiana University - Bloomington

I matured a lot during my semester abroad because you learn how to survive on your own. You don't have your parents or friends back home to help you if you need help. Made me want to travel the world even more because it was such a great experience. - Nichols College
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
There's so much to learn about yourself and the world living in another country. You learn how to use public transportation to get around and travel, you learn to cook and enjoy different foods, you get a new appreciation of different cultures by meeting new people and so much more. My program directors went out of their way to ... - University of Tampa

My communication skills have gotten extremely better since I went abroad. I went there knowing one student and can say I have met and interacted with 100s of new people. I have learned to keep an open mind to things that are different. I have done things I never thought were possible and have conquered many of my fears. - Nichols College

Studying abroad has taught me that If I can travel across the world and live in a foreign country, I can do anything. I became more independent and learned how to manage money and plan out my own trips. It has also taught me to step out my comfort zone and immerse myself in a different culture. - Lasell College
The benefits of my study abroad experience are incalculable. The experience of LIVING in another country has inspired me to continue traveling all around the world. The friends I made and the adventures we took are incredibly unique and special. It is not possible to come to regret studying abroad in Australia. It is truly a on... - University of Iowa
I gained a better understand of myself, which was the most important aspect of the entire experience. I learned that no matter how much money it costs and no matter how far away I am from home, it is all worth it because of the lifelong friends I made and all the things I learned about life and myself. - University of Iowa
I learned about new cultures and lifestyles, and also learned more about myself than I could have ever imagined. It was the greatest learning experience I could suggest, and was certainly worth spending a semester away. - University of Kentucky
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned how to navigate in unfamiliar places. I was not very good at directions but when I was somewhere that was nowhere near home I forced to learn and teach myself. Very worthwhile! - University of Kentucky
It was incredible semester with amazing memories I will keep for the rest of my life. Say yes to everything and try it all - you'll have so much fun and learn many new things. It was one of the most worthwhile experiences of my life. - Lasell College
I learned how to interact in an international context and got a lot of vital traveling experience. Gained a ton of friends that I will cherish for the rest of my life. 100% worthwhile. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned a great deal about Australian culture as well as history (I took an Australian history class). I feel much more independent, able to adapt to different situations with greater ease, and I gained friends across the world as well as right next door New Jersey. I recommend everyone to study abroad as it was an experience ... - University of Maryland - College Park

Absolutely worthwhile. I'm getting excited just writing about it because I want to share my experience with as many people who are interested. I applied to the program and decided I was going with a week, so talk about impulse and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It was just such a rewarding and eye opening exper... - Indiana University of Bloomington
I learned who I am in this big world. And that I have a lot to learn. I'd do it over again a million times. - DePaul University
Going to Australia and living half way across the world taught me to open my eyes and mind to the endless possibilities that the world has to offer. I shared countless experiences of laughter and excitement with friends from all over the world. The lessons I learned in my 4 month period abroad taught me more than any text book... - Augsburg College

I learned how to adapt and embrace different cultures, and I gained such a broader perspective on societal mores and attitudes from my friendships, both international and American. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
My time abroad was invaluable. I made some of the greatest friends I've ever had, seen things and gone places I'd never imagined experiencing, and learned a tremendous deal about myself. I really grew as a person while I was abroad, and I can honestly say I was the happiest in Australia that I've been in a very long time. - Bond University
This was my first opportunity to spend an extended period of time outside of the States and it helped me to gain an entirely new perspective on the world. Living life for three and a half months on the other side of the world helped me to truly understand the vastness and diversity that exists outside the confines of the United ... - Stonehill College
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned to be open to new experiences, to take risks, and to make the most out of each day. The 4 months I spent in Australia were the fastest 4 months of my life and I would go back and start over from the beginning if given the chance any day. The people I met while abroad will always have a special place in my heart and I l... - Quinnipiac University
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
Spending the semester abroad was the best decision I have ever made. You have to put yourself out there and break out of your comfort zone. I have such amazing memories from my semester abroad and can thank TEAN for all of them. I would highly recommend The Education Abroad Network to any prospective student looking to study in ... - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh
I would describe my study abroad experience as the best four months of my life. I was given the opportunity to see and experience things that I will never be able to again. I met some of my best friends on this trip and fulfilled a dream that I never imagined would come true. I couldn't imagine going with any other program, TEAN... - University of New Hampshire
I learned how to survive on my own in a foreign country for an extended period of time. I also gained experience in traveling to places around the world. My experience abroad was absolutely worth it. It was the most amazing thing I've ever done in my life and TEAN had a lot to do with it. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
Going abroad was an absolutely unbelievable experience. Going abroad changes you. Living and experiencing another country's culture gives you a whole new outlook of your culture, and gives you different perspective of the world. I learned more about the world in one semester abroad than I have in my entire college career. I als... - University of Iowa
