* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Academics were not involved

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

The program was very well organized with networking opportunities and employment prospects.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

The housing was absolutely spectacular. Not only was the house located in a very safe and great neighborhood, but it was located in the center of London, making it easily accessible to all the different areas (cultural, nightlife, etc.) of London.

* Food:

England isn't exactly known for its food; however, London does have some spectacular places to eat if you know where to go. So long as you're willing to look and explore, you're bound to find a decent place to eat in London.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

The program not only had additional excursion trips (trips to Paris and Pamplona, Spain for the running of the bulls), but the interns were also encouraged to explore on their own. Whether it was going to other parts of Europe, or visitng Bath, Stonehenge, Dublin, or other parts of the UK and Ireland, there was definitely no shortage of keeping yourself busy with all the places to see.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

London is a very safe place, so there was no need to worry about any crime. However, like any city, there are pockets of dangerous neighborhoods so as long as one stays away from those few places, it's absolutely safe.

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)
