The BU London program is so great!! Past Review

By (Business Administration, Boston University) for

Boston University: London - London Internship Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
The program was amazing!! The classes were great and internship was a great, worthwhile experience. They really cater to your specific needs and wants to find each student his/her perfect internship. It is easy to travel all over Europe, so take advantage of it! The only issue is money...which can be avoided if you learn to cook! :)

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Most Professors were great, but classes were long (4 hour classes a day for 4 days a week). Lots of fun and educational field trips :)

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

The Crofton was great and very fun! Most people on the program live in this particular flat. All housing is located in South Kensington. Singles, doubles, triples and quads available and about 5-12 people share a kitchen. The only downside was that the Internet was weak when we were there.

* Food:

Nando's, Jakobs, Pret A Manger, Giraffe, Chiquitos...must go to!

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Loved everything about this experience! The London Program gives you opportunities to buy discounted tickets to shows/games/events/tours etc.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

South Kensington is one of the safest and nicest areas in London! The doctor was expensive, but insurance covers it!

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)


Language acquisition improvement?

N/A- it's all English!
