An Amazing Experience Past Review

By (New York University) - abroad from 08/16/2013 to 11/01/2013 with

Internships in London

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
30 is the new 20 and interning abroad is the new study abroad. I am glad I made the decision to intern abroad and not study. My internship has helped me to grow on a professional front and now I have something great to put on my resume and even something better to talk about while on interviews.

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

It was an internship

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

I thought EiAbroad prepared me well for London. It helped to be coming from a big city, NYC, so there wasn't as much cultural shock as others.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

London flats are much was you would imagine after watching the movie "Notting Hill"

* Food:

Decent at best

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

I was coming from New York so it wasn't difficult at all. Not to mention there is no language barrier

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

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)


* Did your program have a foreign language component? Yes
