March 20, 2020 Growing In Prague
I learned for to budget and live by myself. I learned how to be with myself.

Prague is so great and I never expected to love European culture so much. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
August 27, 2019 Dobry Den!
I learned so much about life in the Czech Republic, a part of Europe that is not as explored as elsewhere. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I was surprised how much living in a post-Communist country that has undergone so many changes over the past 100 years would challenge my perspectives. This was a valuable opportunity to live in a new part of the world and shake up my routine at my home university. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I was able to really explore and embrace my independence, navigating a foreign city and a new experience on my own. I learned a lot about the history of Central Europe from the Central European perspective. I found these both to be incredibly worthwhile, I will cherish this experience for the rest of my life. - Washington University in St. Louis View Entire Review
Past Review I Studied Abroad
It can be very eye opening to be so deeply immersed into another culture. It's interesting to see the similarities and differences between life at home and life abroad. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Getting to spend time working on making a film and meeting other filmmakers was invaluable, and it was great to be a part of a program and school that supports it. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It absolutely worthwhile. I think the majority of what I learned and gained abroad revolved around personal growth rather than the kind of intellectual growth I might have had at Brandeis. Of course, academically it was incredible to learn about Communism and European History in the places these things actually happened. It real... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I had the irreplaceable experience of making a 16mm film from beginning to end of the process. It was worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned how to adapt when things didn't go exactly as I expected. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I truly learned how to be independent. How to be smart. How to juggle fun, school, travel, friends etc. I had an unbelievable time. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I learned about a new region of Europe (for me), met great other American students, many of whom I'm close with and see regularly, and got to know a beautiful, exciting, enchanting city intimately for a semester. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
February 01, 2022 The Best Time Of My Life
I learned so much about film and met the most incredible people. I could rave about this programs for days without taking a breath. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned Czech, more independence, the importance of challenging yourself. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the history of central Europe, a better geographical understanding, and a better understanding of different European cultures in general. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
July 30, 2019 Fun In Prague!
I gained so many incredible life experiences and interacted with so many different kinds of people. I learned how to live on my own. I would say it was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was and I learned how to navigate by yourself and experience different cultures. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I definitely became more independent during my semester abroad. Having to navigate a new city and create new relationships was difficult at first, but I am so thankful that I had this experience and hope to return to Prague some day soon! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Experience in a culture not my own, film-making experience, city-life, friendships, yes - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about different cultures and alternative perspectives on the world and historical events. I learned that your attitude effects your experience in no matter what your doing or where you are. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much about Central and Eastern Europe as well as Europe as a whole from this experience. The Jewish studies part was definitely a highlight. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a good amount about Jewish life in Central Europe and the lectures and meetings I attended during traveling seminar taught me things that I have yet to learn in a traditional classroom. Those experiences outside of the classroom are the ones I still talk about today. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I can't sum it up. I've learned about myself, people, independence, travel, the world, things that can't be taught conventionally in classrooms. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing Semester
I got a wonderful experience interning in a web-based business in Prague. I also learned a lot about Central European history and Jewish history in Central Europe. It was extremely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
