A student studying abroad with Arcadia: London - University of Westminster
July 28, 2020 A M A Z Ing
My experience was better than I expected. London is full of international people that want to study and have a good time.

How to be independent and comfortable in my own skin. Which empowers me to see my own potential and turn that potential into great things. I learned how to listen more than I speak in order to learn more about new places. I learned how to use public transport which is not something we have in Texas. - Trinity University View Entire Review

Past Review Amazing
It was most definitely worthwhile. I learned about different cultures and how to adapt to different kinds of people and different areas across the globe. I learned how to use different methods of transport very well also. - Roger Williams University / RWU View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself as a traveller, student, and friend. I was able to see different cultures and meet tons of new people.

My experience abroad was definitely worthwhile - being in a different country and having the chance to travel was priceless and an experience I'll always remember.

A student studying abroad with Arcadia: London - University of Westminster
I go out with all of Americans and meet new friends everyday. I feel very comfortable in London. My friends were asking for gifts, but I couldn't find anything that is special. Finally, I sent them poster cards because I think what I can buy in England I can find it in China. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
It was a very worthwhile experience, I learned a lot about myself and about a new culture - one that I like very much and loved being a part of. - University of Wisconsin - Madison View Entire Review

It was definitely worthwhile. I wouldn't change one single aspect of my experience. From beginning to end it turned out to be THE best decision I ever made.

I got to see other cultures and traditions up close and broadened my horizons across the boa... - University of Westminster View Entire Review
