Study Away Programs and Internships in Los Angeles

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I learned many tips about the work world that I will carry with me. For example, I learned the power of networking! Expanding your range and meeting people is very important!

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Not much academic workload, which allowed much more time to invest in the Internship

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Amazing staff!! They were organized, had so much knowledge about the city, and were so encouraging!

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Living on campus at UCLA was a very safe environment to live in. It was great having access to all the university amenities!

* Food:

Not too many options on campus, but living in LA there are plenty of amazing places to dine.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

There were so many program events that the staff planned! We went to Malibu for a surfing day, went to a dodgers game, had a fabulous going away dinner in Beverly Hills, and the list goes on!

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Did not have any safety issues, but i know the program staff was available to help with any issues!

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)


If applicable, to what degree did your living situation aid your language acquisition?

A Look Back

  • People
  • Staff
  • Activities
* What could be improved?
  • Cost!
  • Food
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? Take a chance! It may seem scary to go across the country, or across the world, to a different city, but you will have an amazing experience. I could not think of a better way to spend 2 months- building your resume and skills, while having so much fun exploring a new city and meeting new people.
