On-site administration of your program

I only saw our group 2-3 times the entire abroad experience, they didnt really help with anything.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Best part of the experience! Make sure to travel as many places as possible while there you won't regret it later. Also get involved with things at College and within the university cause there are plenty of clubs and activities to do there

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

City life was very safe, make sure to travel with friends just cause it is always a good idea for safety and because it is more fun to share that experience with someone!

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? No


* 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)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Will probably want to spend money one gifts and extra food


How would you rate your language skills at the beginning of the program? None
