Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

It's really tough but a challenge and worth it if you want to learn something.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Everything was great.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

I had a horrible experience with a room mate who basically forced me to move out of the house and live with a friend. I feel as though it could have been a better experience because I was bullied by another male room mate as a female.

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

I didn't attend any events.

A Look Back

* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? I would tell every student to stand up for themselves. If they have a problem with something, they should always talk to University so they are not alone.
