Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The Art History course gave me a push to take more classes once back at Centre. The Art of Walking was a very challenging text but allowed me to read abstract text. The literature course gave me a new appreciation for english classes. I highly enjoyed coming to class each day

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

I gave 3 globes because Keffer was amazing...always willing to help. Our program coordinator was not helpful at all. Never saw her working and no one understood what her job was. Not useful to the program at all.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Quaint apartment <br /><br /> Loved the girls I lived with and loved the apartment. Truly called it home

* Food:

Loved to cook dinners every night. Great time for girls to interact

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Our group always got together and it was a great time.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Never ever worried

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)

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? 100 euros
Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Be expected to pay for reservations for train tickets


How would you rate your language skills at the beginning of the program? None
Language acquisition improvement?

I feel that I am more confident to speak
