My experience was very worthwhile, and I am very glad I did it. It taught me independence and gave me confidence in my ability to travel on my own as well as succeed in a very rigorous academic setting. - Saint Anselm College View Entire Review

I have also made some great friends while abroad whom I am very gr... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Also, it is a very easy train ride from St. Andrews to Edinburgh or London and then to the rest of Europe. Being abroad, I learned what the European education system was lik... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
