Overall Experience
I learned independence as well as new perspectives on different issues that I have been learning about at my home school. It was 100% worthwhile and I would recommend studying abroad to everyone. - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
A better understanding of what health policies can do and how they affect our day to day lives. I gained an international experience that I never had, and challenged how I viewed things prior. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - Health Practice and Policy
This may sound cliché, but I’m being completely sincere when I say that study abroad was a truly enriching, eye-opening, and transformative experience that allowed me to not only discover more about myself but gain worldly perspectives. Being away from the campus bubble and away from all my closest family members and friends in ... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - Health Practice and Policy

For my three HPP courses, I felt... - American University View Entire Review

I gained so many friends and had so many adventures. I became more independent and learned to make my own budget and travel plans. It was the best three months of my life and I already miss it! - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review

February 10, 2016 Can I Go Back Now?
Going abroad was most definitely worthwhile. Not only did I learn a lot about public health, but I learned so much about myself as a person. I learned how to travel on a budget, how to relax and not stress about schoolwork, and how I overcome challenges (like getting miserably lost). - Whitman College View Entire Review
January 25, 2016 A Semester To Remember
I gained a lot of independence while I was abroad. It was definitely worth while. It forced me to go outside my comfort zone and I learned a lot about myself. - Providence College View Entire Review

During my time abroad I not only discovered a new country, cultures and food but ultimately I rediscovered myself. - Creighton University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - Health Practice and Policy
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in London through IES Abroad. I ultimately chose this program because of the classes I would be taking. As a public health major interested in global health policy, the classes corresponded wonderfully to my academic goals and allowed me further explore possible career opportunities in social service... - American University View Entire Review
