It was definitely a worthwhile experience, but ONLY because my school stepped in and moved me to a different program. If I was stuck with the AKP, it would have been the most scarring and miserable academic year of my life. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This study abroad experience really has not impacted my life goals in any way. I have already lived abroad for the majority of my life (only having spent two years in the States for college) so the living-abroad-novelty that AKP seems to depend on had little impact on me. - Smith College View Entire Review
I had to most amazing year in Japan and this program definitely contributed to my experience. By learning more about Japan's people and culture has given me a better understanding of how to interact with different cultures. Also my time away has helped me mature as a person and I am looking forward to applying everything I have ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review A Year In Kyoto
It was definitely worthwhile. I am so happy I went abroad, although it hasn't changed my future plans. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My time in Kyoto was incredible and really helped me focus on what I want to do with my life and where I want to spend it. It was amazing to finally go abroad and view my own culture from a different perspective and re-examine my own perceptions of Japan. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
YES. It's all a very different experience for each person. I love traveling and staying with host families. It also reminds me of how there are so many different people around the world, yet we're all the same. I think what I like best is of course, not only getting to eat the food of a new place, but how your outlook is inf... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review A Mixed Bag
It was definitely worthwhile. I gained a really strong relationship with my host family, I grew really comfortable in Kyoto, and I did learn a good chunk of Japanese. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Yes. I became proficient in Japanese, made new friends, and had a great time. I hope to go back to teach English after I graduate. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I am definitely glad I went on this program. If not for this program I would not be applying to teach English in Japan after I graduate. I also wouldn't have had the best summer job ever this past summer. View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent from traveling around by myself or with friends. I learned to be more understanding about different cultural practices and lifestyles. Although I do not plan to pursue a career in Japan or in Japanese, I am very happy that I decided to go abroad and am thrilled that I was able to become proficien... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review
Yes it was the best 8 months of my life, probably! I loved the people I met there, Kyoto, my host family, everything. I was very happy the entire time. There was more that I could have done to become more culturally aware, but that was my own fault. I learned a lot about Japan! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review
ABSOLUTELY. It was a valuable opportunity to spend time abroad in a region that I've studied academically, and a great way to get a better sense of what I want to do post-Wellesley, as well as provide focus for my last year. It was a very different experience from a year at Wellesley, which I really appreciated. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This was the most amazing experience of my life and I feel empty inside knowing that it's over. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
