Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The workload about the same as I get here at Bryant so was the grading system. The teaching methods were different because I was in lecture halls with a much bigger group but the seminars were similar to Bryant classes except the teacher was more hands on with the students.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

They were very accessible and were very knowledgeable about the country. They provided a lot of helpful tips about what to do and what not to do. They recommended places to visit and said what they enjoyed and didn't enjoy about those places.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

Too much repetition of food choices after awhile got old but it made things more cost effective to provided a meal. Also, they did not provide a lunch just breakfast and dinner which I found odd.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Traveling to France, Greece, Italy, and Scotland. Getting to see York and experiencing England's largest amusement park.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Was very safe did not experience and problems or issues. Transportation was easy to get to and easy to navigate to my destination.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* 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)
