Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

It was a lot of work for a short period of time, but I completely understand why. I learned so much and the professors were incredible. The language barrier was a little difficult at points, but that's just something that comes with studying abroad. Loves it and had such a positive learning experience.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Very well-planned out, good size and my expectations were exceeded.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

For independent travel I utilized hotels and hostels. Neighborhood was great in Well, very safe, nice place to live and study.

* Food:

It would help a bit if on the questionnaire we filled out before coming here, if they include a question on whether or not we eat fish. That was the only tough part for non-fish eaters.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?


* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Very, vere safe.

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)
