I learned how to be more independent and that I need to further develop my time-management skills. Yes, it definitely was. - University of Rochester View Entire Review

I made some absolutely amazing friends who made the experience very worthwhile, my French improved, I learned a lot about European politics, I met someone (romantically), I really matured being away from everybody I felt comfortable with from home...It was just all around an amazing experience. - Drexel University View Entire Review
I really did enjoy this - University of Rochester View Entire Review
The workings of European Institutions as well as many inspiring, smart people who are in politics. Without the connections of EPA, I would have never earned the invaluable experience in European politics. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! The work experience in a foreign office alone is worth it. Meeting international kids as well was so great! - Drexel University View Entire Review
Very worthwhile; gain lots of independence and self confidence. - Furman University View Entire Review
I learned what it is like to both live and work in a foreign country. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Only because of Parliament. Brussels is a beautiful city but I came with a lot of anger because of the safety, housing, and education situation. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
