Overall Experience
Overall my experience was worthwhile. I was exposed to a number of different cultures, and was also forced to be much more independent as an individual. - Providence College View Entire Review

Past Review Take Me Back!
I grew as a person and student, I learned so much more than could ever be taught in a classroom. Studying abroad forces you to challenge yourself in ways you didn't know were possible. It's a transformational experience, you come back a different person. - Providence College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about working in foreign countries through our internship. - Providence College View Entire Review
I learned a lot more about how to be independent and I learned to be flexible and enjoy my new environment rather than stressing about the changes it brought into my life. - Providence College View Entire Review
A whole new perspective on the world. It was incredible to experience first-hand cultural differences and the unique characteristics that make up each country. The sense of globalism was present in every direction and it was wonderful to live in such a multicultural city. The opportunity to travel was unforgettable and it was a ... - Fordham University View Entire Review

Past Review Educational
My time abroad was worth while. I gained a new understanding of different cultures. I also gained an appreciation for my own home and country. - Fordham University View Entire Review
I really enjoyed the experience - we must have been to every museum in London and we also managed to get to other places in England and to France and Italy The most valuable thing I got from my program was probably the internship experience at a law firm, which is hard for undergrad students to get in the US. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I am so glad I chose to study abroad. I learned so much about myself and the world around me. This experience was easily the highlight of my college career and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It was an incredibly worthwhile experience and I'd recommend it to every student. - Providence College View Entire Review
How to interact with locals, how to adapt a new culture and participate actively in a life that is foreign to me. I accumulated some knowledge about my marketing- the field of my interest and did an internship in Disney London. That was a great experience overall. It's absolutely worthwhile to go study abroad in London. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Being abroad was an amazing experience that I would recommend every student to do. I learned a lot about myself and even more about the world and different cultures around me. It was a very worthwhile experience and if I could do it again and for longer, I absolutely would! - Providence College View Entire Review
I had never traveled to another country before going abroad. After visiting 11 countries while there, I have a new sense of what it is like in other places since seeing them first hand. It was definitely worthwhile, I loved London, it was definitely my favorite country. After traveling to different countries, I never doubted pic... - Providence College View Entire Review
Past Review Lovely
Absolutely worthwhile! I learned so much about myself and it made me realize that this world is beautiful and there is more to life than college. - Providence College View Entire Review
lots of trips to various countries across Europe - Providence College View Entire Review
I gained insight into life in a foreign country. Not only did I learn about the city I lived in but I learned about all the countries I traveled to. I also learned a lot about myself and how I want to live my life out of school. The experience was absolutely worthwhile and I would go back in a heartbeat! - Providence College View Entire Review
I learned so much about London/ the UK in terms of culture, politics etc. I loved having the opportunity to live independently in a new city, navigate the tube and explore the various neighborhoods, market places museums and historical sites. I also learned a lot about myself. I now trust my ability to make travel plans/itinerar... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I gained great work experience and knowledge about England and London specifically. I learned how to get along in a foreign country. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was definitely worth while. I felt more comfortable living with American students but also got to interact with locals through my internship. I also enjoyed my classes, and learned things about the British culture through them as well. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Living abroad in London was an amazing experience and I wish I could do it all over again. London is such a diverse and exciting city. I learned a lot about myself and my interests. - Fordham University View Entire Review
Most of what I learned was due to my internship at a small social media public relations company. My coworkers were fantastic and really made me feel like a part of the family. They took very good care of me, and going to work was one of the best experiences of my life. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about working in another culture. It was interesting how different the work environment is in London. Despite speaking the same language, there is a very different culture in the UK. I was worthwhile. - Providence College View Entire Review
