February 04, 2020 Wish I Did A Full Year
Gain- the cultural differences are really prevalant - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I had time to figure myself out a bit, as well as seeing the world from a different perspective. The cultural excursion trips were very meaningful to me, and overall the program was worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I loved it -- I loved living on my own (mostly) and forcing myself to interact daily with a culture different than what I grew up in; Prague is very affordable and fun and is a great location to access other countries in Europe - Brandeis University View Entire Review
September 21, 2018 Cheap But Boring
travel as much as possible - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Independence, a sense of self, a home base to travel all over Central Europe, tons of lifelong friends... I really could go on. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
June 11, 2018 Fantastic
I learned a lot about the historic and contemporary Czech context and Czech culture. I also had the privilege of making friends with Czech students that I will have for a long time going forward. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Independence and confidence. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
September 05, 2017 Prague Is Lovely!
I learned so much from my experience abroad and made amazing friends. I wish that I could have made more local friends. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how much we are shaped by our culture's history, how resilient people are, how to be a competent traveler, etc. It was absolutely worthwhile and transformative. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A lot about my self and independence and how to adapt - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained better cultural understanding, having to go through some cultural barriers. I learned how to be more independent, whether in Prague or as I travelled around Europe. I could not imagine a better study abroad experience, and hope to get back to Prague ASAP - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Great!
It was worthwhile. I learned a lot. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned so much about new cultures. I fell in love with the city and I can't wait until I can return. - Drake University View Entire Review
I became way more independent, adaptable, and resilient. I gained valuable travel skills and an amazing, humbling perspective on my place in the world as an American. Prague was full of exciting, affordable cultural experiences and was perfectly situated for travel. I learned a lot about European history, Czech history and the r... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
learned to live in a city, be more independent, use public transportation, definitely worth it - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I feel really glad that I chose to study somewhere that was not in Western Europe. It gave me so much perspective on the legacy of the Soviet Union and the political environment in Central and Eastern Europe. It was absolutely the best city ever, and every time I traveled elsewhere I felt lucky to return to Prague after because ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
How to feel comfortable with a completely different culture, was worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
June 24, 2018 A Blast!
Adult independence. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile to study abroad because i got to experience a new culture and travel to new places. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to handle uncomfortable situations. For example, while I was traveling, I got lost in Vienna for two hours. I did not have cellular data (which unfortunately we rely so much on in this generation), so there were moments like that where I was forced to figure it out and navigate, and ask people for help when I was c... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Study abroad is really about learning to be okay with doing things on your own and also appreciating the friends you make along the way. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
July 11, 2017 Something Else
I learned so much, but I think the most important thing was that I learned what I'm capable of when I quit my comfort zone, and that felt priceless. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained a very basic knowledge of Czech, a better knowledge of beer and that is about it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile and I learned a lot about myself and the world. I learned a lot of history from a different perspective, which I really appreciate. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Prague <3 !!!
Definitely worthwhile, gained some life long friends. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
