September 18, 2020 Life Changing And Amazing
Meaningful travel means going somewhere to learn something about yourself and how it connects to the environment that you’re in. Traveling to a vacation town can be fun to get away from everything for a week, but have you really learned anything from it? I think that the best kind of travel is going somewhere you want to go, lea... - Lake Erie College View Entire Review

December 02, 2019 Amazing Summer In London!
I really enjoyed my history class I took where I learned about what makes London a global city because I was able to practice experience learning. Also, I learned a ton from my internship; I liked that it was part-time (only 20 hours a week), which gave me plenty of time for exploring while still gaining experience working abroa... - University of Dayton View Entire Review

April 19, 2019 London And More!
I learned a lot about art. My minor is in arts administration so the fact that I was able to learn so much about Modern Art and see most of it in person, was incredible. I will always remember that, and miss how accessible some of the greatest pieces of art where to me. - Albright College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
Absolutely it was worthwhile. I learned so much about how to live and work in a culture that was unfamiliar, how to navigate public transportation, how to budget and meal plan, how to plan cost-effective trips, and so much more. I feel confident that I could live in any country in the world because of this program. - Samford University View Entire Review
The internship CAPA placed me in was absolutely incredible and I definitely learned more about the field of psychology I want to go into. WOrking with LGBTQ+ individuals and providing them with a safe space to discuss their issues and meet other people was phenomenal, and a lot of fun! I also learned a lot about myself as a pers... - Siena College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
I learned more than I would have ever imagined in my time studying abroad. Being away from home at college teaches you a lot about growing up and being self-sufficient, but being away from home in another country is an entirely different experience. It is such a special and eye-opening experience to live in another country. Lond... - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
while studying abroad I was able to grow so much as a person. being able to be more independent and determine what I wanted for my adult life. It gave me such a sense of clarity to be somewhere new and being able to meet new people and try new things. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review

I learned more about myself in terms of what I am capable of independently. Spelman prepared me for experiences such as this one, and London was the test. I am prepared for the next trip! - Spelman College View Entire Review

December 01, 2019 Wouldn't Change A Thing
I learned how important it is to step outside of your comfort zone. It's amazing how much you learn and how much you grow once you start doing things out of your everyday norm. - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
Completely worthwhile! I learned more about myself on this trip than I ever could have imagined. I made friends from my campus that I would have never met and also made friends in Singapore that I still keep in touch with. My professor is now a mentor that I've used during the last year of my college career. This program changed... - University at Buffalo - SUNY View Entire Review
The experience that CAPA provided me was a once in a life time opportunity. It really helped me grow as a student, a professional, and a culturally aware member of society. It pushed me completely out of my comfort zone and forced me to gain skills and confidence. Having an internship with a company in another country allowed me... - University of Dayton View Entire Review

It was my first time being away from home and I learned how to truly be independent. It was awesome being able to navigate an unfamiliar city and fully immerse myself in a new culture. Throughout the semester, I experienced a lot of personal and professional growth. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
Deciding to study abroad was definitely out of my comfort zone but I knew I had to take the leap to further my learning and I am very glad I did. I learned a lot about myself and the world around me from my experience abroad. I became more independent, confident, and open-minded. I was able to immerse myself in the British cultu... - Merrimack College View Entire Review
I learned so much while I was abroad. I learned so much about the culture and different perspectives. It was definitely worthwhile. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
CAPA gave me the opportunity to intern abroad in a field of my choice. They did all of the work for me in terms of finding me a company to work with and finding a supervisor for me to work under. All I had to do was tell them my preference for field work (which I put HR - human resources) and they took care of the rest for me. C... - Merrimack College View Entire Review
Studying abroad with CAPA London was definitely worthwhile! I hope to visit London again! I definitely gained a lot more confidence as a person and as a traveler and want to travel a lot more. I'm glad I was able to meet so many locals whom I still keep in contact with today. - Rollins College View Entire Review
September 17, 2018 I Miss Capa London
I matured and learned so much about other cultures that I would never have been exposed to had I not studied abroad. I discovered a lot about myself and came home the best version of myself that I could be. - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
