Past Review It Was Good
I thought it was worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was worth every minute of preparation and every cent plus more. I still can't believe I was lucky enough to be able to experience it. I have never felt more excited than I did everyday that I was abroad. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was my first time in Europe, so I was able to travel to places I've always wanted to go to, so I gained exposure to the culture and sights that I have always wanted to see. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
The whole world does not run the same way the US does. There is a deeper appreciation for the city, the food, culture, and for others. It was an amazing experience, one in which I learned so much about the world and about how I view it. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I definitely learned how to adapt to other areas of academics since I did not take a single class towards my major. I also gained insight into the culture in London. Probably the most important, I learned to be independent; London gave me the opportunity to just go out and do something whenever I wanted. Anything and everything ... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I have a perspective of what it's like to live in another country with a different political system, university system, climate, environment, culture, etc. I think Americans think of the UK as being very similar to us. There are a lot of things we share: a language, certain aspects of pop culture. Our music, movies, are heavily ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

An increase in independence, an idea on how to budget, evaluating the opportunity costs of traveling to one place over another, etc. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned that I can live independently in a foreign country, and that I am more capable than I thought. I also fell in love with the city of London and it was the time of my life! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Arcadia: London - Queen Mary University of London
Nearly every study abroad student I know has the time of their life while study abroad no matter where they go and that's no different for me. It was without a doubt worthwhile and I learned so much about London, England, Europe, and the world as well as a great deal about myself. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile because I learned that I am capable of living on my own and navigating a new city. I basically started all over and it was super fun. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Studying abroad was one of the best decisions I ever made. After this semester I am confident that wherever I go in my life I will be able to handle myself in new situations, navigate new places, and befriend people from all over. London is an amazing city and I can see myself living there at some point in my life. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
