I loved taking theater classes with professors who actually work in the industry. I had an intensive yet meaning 5 weeks of theater education experience.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Housing was great, I lived with 5 other girls in a nice British flat and we had fun cooking and chatting in the kitchen.

* Food:

I loved cooking with local produce. Every day I go to the market and pick up fresh strawberries, it was the best time of the summer!

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

People were nice and polite, we had a great time in England.

Very safe city!

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes

ASE is able to bring some of the best education resources to students from America, especially in literature and arts. 5 weeks felt so short but it was incredibly productive, I did not expect myself seeing 10+ shows and performed a show.


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

Personally it was quite easy for me.
