Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Workload was good, grading was challenging, but not unfairly so. There was less of a lecture atmosphere and a lot more discussion in classes, which is nice.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Very cool people. Very friendly and helpful.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Very safe, very inviting, very close to classes.

Barely any options, not great food. There are set times when you have to get food. Not fun.

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Very fun. You get to travel on the weekends. It's very rewarding.
