Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Pretty much the best time of my life. We were taught be some great teachers who were not afraid to speak their minds about our work, but the film aspect was only part of it. The more important aspect of the program is the exposure to a fantastic culture with a history full of oppression, perseverance, and beauty. Prague is now my favorite city.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Jim Lane is the man. Just make sure you have a plan about how to get from the airport to your dorms. Not alot of people know where you will be living.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Away from downtown, but easily accessible by public transportation. Pretty sweet set up as long as you are willing to share a room.

* Food:

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? No


* 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)
