A student studying abroad with CISabroad (Center for International Studies): London - Summer at University of Westminster
I learned how to interact with people from all over the world and manage my emotions more than I ever have. It was truly an eye-opening experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life. - Auburn University View Entire Review

Past Review Amazing
It was very worthwhile and I would do it all again. I learned how to live in a major city and how to be independent in a major city. I have also learned many new skills that will go towards my studies as well. - Jacksonville University View Entire Review
Breaking out of my shell Incredibly worthwhile - University of Westminster View Entire Review
My experience abroad made me realize that I would enjoy grad school overseas, whereas before this trip I was scared by the very idea of such a thing. I learned more about the subtle (and not-so-subtle) differences between British and American conversation/transportation/cuisine/hotel accommodations/accents/street markets/etc. ... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned that there are so many greater things out there than West Chester. I was able to do things that I have never done and learn about people from all over. I found out more about myself in those 3 months than I have at my whole time at West Chester. - West Chester University of Pennsylvania View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself and met so many amazing life long friends. Everything I have gained from this experience will follow me for the rest of my life. This was everything that I wanted it to be and more. View Entire Review
Going on study abroad was the best decision I have ever made. I learned about the world and other people. It changed who I was and what I wanted to do. I am going back next semester to learn even more. - DePaul University View Entire Review
I wouldn't trade my study abroad experience for the world. I learned so much--not just from my classes, but from living on my own. I had to budget, cook for myself, make new friends and explore a new city. I grew up in a small town, and London was the first city in which I ever lived. Living in London made me fall in love wit... - Waynesburg College View Entire Review
