Overall Experience
I learned how to go with the flow. Sometimes the best experiences are not planned. I also learned a lot about different cultures. I had limited experience in other countries than the U.S. so I was able to learn a lot from my international friends. I think this experience was worthwhile. Everyone should experience a culture diffe... - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Gaines a great cultural insight and a cultural enrichment from all the people. - Technologico de Monterrey / Monterrey Institute of Technology / ITESM View Entire Review
This was definitely a worthwhile experience! You will learn a lot about yourself, but also a lot about how to deal with different education systems and cultures. Griffith is a very diverse school so if you interact with other exchange or study abroad students, then you will know someone from every corner of the world before you ... - George Mason University View Entire Review
I learned that there is more to the world than America. That you have to always keep an open mind and when you do great things will happen! I do not regret one second, one dollar, one action I made during this time abroad because it have been the best 5 months of my life. If you have the funds, studying in Australia is a must... - Illinois State University View Entire Review

Improved my english, learned how to surf, how to challenge myself in a new way. Definitely worth it View Entire Review
I also spoke about this a bit, but as a shy person going abroad by myself is completely out of my comfort zone and it was about testing myself. I wanted to see how well I could handle a completely different environment then I am used to. I learned a lot about myself and that I can do whatever I want. I also was able to make some... - Ithaca College View Entire Review

I have learned an incredible amount about other cultures. Travelling to Bali, all over Australia, New Zealand, and having lots of friends from Paris, Sweden, Norway really opened my eyes. My academic interests were broadened. I read books by Plato, Freud, Machiavelli and surprisingly enjoyed them. This changed my life, and I am ... - Illinois State University View Entire Review

Past Review
I would go it again as much as I could if I had the money. I can't say enough good things about the people I met, the places I went and everything I gained. While I am poor and trying to get settled back into American life, I find I have to actively stop myself from thinking about everything that had just happened in my life. ... - Ithaca College View Entire Review
