Overall Experience
It was worthwhile. I learned I'm a lot extraverted than I thought and that I prefer to have roommates than to live alone. I always knew that I tend to thrive in big cities but that was just an assumption, this experience solidified that for myself. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
My entire semester was really fun and spontaneous. I visited 9 countries during my semester abroad. It's so cheap and easy to visit all the European countries (mostly). I made some great friends in London and it's definitely an experience of a lifetime. It makes me want to travel more and explore our beautiful world. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
My time abroad was worthwhile. I just wish I did it at a different institution, or in a different country. I learned to teach myself a subject with little support from professors, and through my internship I learned a lot of research skills that will be really helpful in finding internships and jobs in the future. Also, being... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Past Review Crazy Fun
I explored and visited many new places. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Took a much needed break from my home school and learned that I love London so much! - Harvard University View Entire Review
I learned how to be independent, and how it is to live in a big city. It was definitely a memorable 6 months. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I became more independent, more functional. I learned how to cook for myself and to navigate a strange city on my own, and it felt great. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to be independent, and how to travel on a really small budget- it is so easy to get around Europe on their train systems once you figure out how to do it. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review I'd Do It Again
I learned I liked living abroad in a city. It was definitely worthwhile to meet new types of people. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
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
This was an amazing experience that gave me greater insight into the differences and similarities of people and cultures in a wide variety of countries. It was fun to talk to people in different countries and hear their views on America and Americans. I was not expecting people to be as friendly as they were and as eager to talk... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
January 10, 2023 So Much Fun In London!
It was absolutely worthwhile. I learned a lot about life in the UK and felt very immersed in local culture. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
January 01, 2022 London
I learned how to put myself first and do what i want. It was worthwhile - Brandeis 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
I learned how to balance a budget, and I saw so many amazing places around Europe - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was a worthwhile experience. I learned a lot about myself and used my abroad experience as an opportunity to travel to different countires. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Yes! I feel more independent and I think I gained a more global perspective. - Santa Clara University View Entire Review
Learned how to travel better, make new friends and new experiences. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
My experience abroad was very worthwhile. I learned how to adapt to a different society and culture, to learn about there customs, and become immersed in them. - 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
