DIS Copenhagen: Semester

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
It was absolutely amazing to travel around Europe and I would suggest the opportunity, however I wish I knew more about what to except in Copenhagen before I choose to studying in the city.

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I felt the class at DIS were more challenging compared to other abroad programs, however they were still easier than courses at Villanova.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

They staff was excellent, you really got to know your teacher in your core class and is definitely someone, who after 4 months getting to know them in class, I could go back to in the future for help.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Copenhagen is not known for there food as well as it is very expensive. I often cooked for myself in order to save money.
