no food

EiAbroad set up networking events that were amazing. I actually am currently interviewing with a small firm for a full time opportunity have meeting one of the HR members

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

no issues here

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)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? As I mentioned Kim told me about many of the LOCAL spots and I have to say they are much cheaper.
