Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

It was a heavy course load, but the classes I took were excellent. I learned a lot!

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Very well organized.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

A bit bland. Definitely edible, though.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Trip to Amsterdam was INCREDIBLE. Exhausting, but very, very fun.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Probably the safest place on earth. Getting medicine for common illnesses can be a chore.

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)


If applicable, to what degree did your living situation aid your language acquisition?
