Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The workload was manageable, it was not overly hard but also easy to learn. There were many field studies which were interesting and allowed me to get involved in what i was learning, which is different from PC.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

The program was well thought out and the orientation helpful and took a mostly hands-off approach. the program was bigger than i expected it to be however which i would have liked to have known before i left. overall the academic environment was good and fairly difficult, and i believe that my expectations were happily met.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

I cooked for myself.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

there was a great social scene and there were even some parties set up by the school that helped to get students to met and connect.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

the city was very safe and there was never any worry, or health issues or anything of that kind. i was assigned a doctor that was very easy to access.

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)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? there is going to be alot of money spent on travelling.


* Did your program have a foreign language component? Yes
If applicable, to what degree did your living situation aid your language acquisition?

Language acquisition improvement?

Practice in class and with visiting family but it wasnt needed. Everyone spoke English.

A Look Back

* What did you like most about the program?
  • I liked the people, the study tours, and the country and city, Copenhagen, Denmark.
* What could be improved?
  • The living arrangements could be improved.
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? This would benefit the common student at PC, the kids who are involved in the program come from all different walks of life but are mostly outgoing, intelligent, and enjoy having a good time.
