I was also able to see so many beautiful, meaningful, and culturally significant cuties and landmarks. It was ... - Wagner College View Entire Review

As with most individuals, I became even more independent during my time. I gained valuable work experience through my internship as well as applicable education from my professors.

February 24, 2017 Loving London
I learned more about myself than I expected, which was great. I also learned a different perspective other than my own like how the British view America and things we do that they think is interesting that I don't think about. - Le Moyne College View Entire Review

My experience abroad gave me a more global perspective on life overall. I was able to travel to not only the UK, but to several other countries in Europe, all of which taught me more and more.

I gained so much more than I will ever fathom from this study abroad experience. I learned things like time and stress management, budgeting tips, how to navigate in unfamiliar places, and more. But I also learned more about who I am and the type of person I want to be. Any chance you get to study abroad - DO IT. - Hope College View Entire Review

August 20, 2019 In Love With London
Even though London is so large and teeming with life, the community atmosphere at our IES center in Holborn made the city feel less daunting. Getting to live and study in the same city as Shakespeare and Chaucer changed my life for the better and gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation of their works. I would recommend I... - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review

Absolutely worthwhile. I gained confidence, independence, a deeper appreciation for history, a deeper cultural understanding, and more pride for my hometown and where I'm from.

September 12, 2017 Loving London
Studying through this program was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I would go back tomorrow if I were able.

I came home with an incredible, newfound level of independence and confidence. I feel as though I can conquer anything I try now since I was able to 'take on' London. - Illinois Wesleyan University View Entire Review
I feel as though I matured a ton during my semester abroad. Not only did I take interesting classes, I also was able to take in all of London and a great deal of Europe. - George Washington University, School of Business View Entire Review
The IES program gives you the option to choose from some really interesting classes that you wouldn’t normally take at your home school – I chose to take a film production course while some of my friends chose architecture or theater courses. You can learn a lot from these courses that you wouldn't otherwise know! The internship... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
