Overall Experience
It was definitely worthwhile, since spending a full year in London, a place I was initially unfamiliar with and where I knew no one, I have found I've become far more self-possessed and able to takeon challenges. The experience endowed me a great amount of perspective and some of the most brilliant memories. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Learned that I love writing a lot more than I thought I did Gained professional advice/insight from lecturers and advisors Met my best friend Gained the experience itself to know that I want to keep traveling Yes, it was 100% worth it - Arcadia University View Entire Review
It was ABSOLUTELY worthwhile. Like I said, it was the best three months of my life. I learned about the world, about a different culture, and a different way of life. I grew as an adult, learned so much about myself and people, and the world. - Northwestern University View Entire Review
I gained so much confidence and a new sense of self. Studying abroad was the best decision I ever made. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Arcadia: London - Goldsmiths, University of London
I gained a lot of experience with managing a monthly budget, becoming familiar with a new environment, learning how to navigate foreign transportation systems, and arranging travel plans. All of the challenges I overcame to make this opportunity happen were certainly worthwhile. - Xavier University of Louisiana View Entire Review
Past Review Incredible
Cultural exposure, friends, experiencing a different academic system, etc. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Gained huge lessons in independence and self-reliance. Gained a lot of perspective on American culture and history. Studying abroad is totally worthwhile because you will grow a ton- I just perhaps should have considered a different city for myself. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review London: Boredom!
No. - Trinity University View Entire Review
