Barcelona is the best! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Barcelona - Advanced Liberal Arts
I gained a better understanding of the culture, the traditions, the people, the language...I traveled and met new people, but most importantly, I made true friends. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Staycation
it was a wonderful experience of freedom and self-discovery in a different environment - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It sounds really cheesy and cliche, but I really feel that I found myself while abroad. I remember hearing and reading this phrase a lot before I left, and thinking that it was just another one of those things that everyone said because it sounded good. However, I know what they mean now. There is no real concrete way of explain... - Barnard College View Entire Review
It was totally worthwhile! I learned so much about myself. I gained a different perspective to view things and being able to compare government, politics, and culture between two countries was what I hoped to gain and I did. - Fordham University View Entire Review
My main goal was to learn the language and become fluent in it. Having achieved this, I am content with my study abroad experience, despite the obstacles I faced. Also, traveling to other parts of Europe was incredible, and I will never forget it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile experience. I learned about myself, the culture and Spanish life. I highly recommend going abroad. Not only does it broaden your horizons, but it's such a unique point in your life in that you have a built it time to explore, travel, have fun, and engage in the world around you with the encouragement of yo... - Barnard College View Entire Review
Past Review
It was definitely worthwhile, and one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I realized how just the small things in life affect you in ways you don't even know until they are completely changed on you. I think everyone should study abroad. It really puts our way of life in the U.S. into perspective. I've always thought... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Guapa Barcelona
Being abroad was the best experience!! It definitely made me grow up a lot because it makes you more independent. It also helped me realize how much there is to know out there and how big the world is. There is so much more to life than just studying and working and I learned that I dont need to be confined to only the US. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained so much in regards to language skills and confidence speaking Spanish. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Great
independence - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Language, communication skills and how to be independent. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned that traveling and meeting new people is one of the most valuable experiences in life because it forces you to accept and appreciate things that are different from what you know which ultimately makes you a more accepting person. I am now more tolerant of people who come from different backgrounds because I realize tha... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
Yes, definitely. There are just aspects I would have changed, particularly after hearing about other students' experiences. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Everything went well and the program did a really good job at making sure that everything went well. - Columbia University View Entire Review
