Overall Experience
definitely worth while, everyone should go abroad! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was defiantly worth while however I wish I had more money to be more social since a lot of time everyone else in the program was engaging in activities. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I loved living in a new culture, but still have connections to an American school. I really had the best of both worlds and therefore in many ways "culture shock" was not a particular worry for me.

Past Review Incredible
The internship component allowed me to connect with locals and learn first hand about British culture.

Professional skills, how to navigate in a new city, how to cook! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I was able to intern in a British hospital which is very rare for American students so I got to see something barely anyone gets the chance to see. I learned about British attitudes on medicine while experiencing it myself. It was definitely worth while. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

It's definitely a worthwhile experience, and I would do it all over again. It is not often you get the chance to work in a foreign country specially the UK. - Bentley University View Entire Review
Past Review Life Changing
It was definitely worthwhile. I just was able to learn about other cultures--their values, beliefs, and ideals. I also worked at a hospital while I was in London, so I was able to compare the similarities and differences between the health care systems. It was truly a "learn by experience." - Providence College View Entire Review
