Past Review London With Ies
Through this program I got to live, study, and work in London, one of the most dynamic cities in the world. In my time abroad I gained an understanding of my place in the world and developed a much better sense of myself. - Seattle University View Entire Review
Past Review Can I Go Back?
I learned so much about myself on the trip. I am much more aware as a person, my sense of direction has greatly improved and I'm more comfortable outside of my comfort zone! - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - Study London
From this experience, I was able to learn that I am capable of taking care of myself, being comfortable in a new environment, and to not be afraid to try new things. Many people say that England and America must be very similar, and while that is fairly true, there are still so many differences and unique experiences there. In ... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself through traveling, and how similar and different people from different countries can be. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned how to be an independent adult. I can now manage a budget and feel more confident to do things by myself. This is by far one of the most worthwhile experiences anyone can have! - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - Study London
I learned so much from my time abroad that it is hard to condense the experience into words. I learned about myself and my ability to adjust to new and challenging situations. I discovered how rewarding it can be to completely leave your preconceptions of yourself and others behind so that you can find common ground and interest... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - IES Abroad London Center
One of the most important things to mention is that although the program and the staff are very much there for you, their structure of the program also encourages everyone to be the main driver in their experience, both academically and socially. As a result, you learn to be incredibly independent in a foreign country and learn... - Connecticut College View Entire Review
Without a doubt this experience was worthwhile and life changing. Through IES abroad, I was able to gain sense of perspective about the world. I learned a lot about myself and independence. IES facilitated an environment in which their students could thrive and find success. - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself and became more independent. - George Washington University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - IES Abroad London Center
I learned that sometimes in order to learn, you need to burst out of your comfort zone and explore independently. You can't be afraid of going across the world by yourself because everyone is in the same exact boat as you, sailing away to the most amazing experience of their lives. It was 100% worthwhile!! - Pennsylvania State University - University Park View Entire Review
As a result of my experience abroad, I gained confidence in my abilities to live on my own in a new place. I learned about London and the people who live in it, and gained a greater understanding and appreciation of British culture. I also had the opportunity to meet a diverse group of students from universities across the Unit... - Pennsylvania State University - University Park View Entire Review
There are many different ways to explore and get to know a city, may it be food, the arts or meeting people, choose your favorite and it'll be more than worthwhile. - College of Charleston View Entire Review
I learned that some of the best things in life are not materialistic and that there is something to be said about the friendships you make while exploring the world. - Trinity University View Entire Review
My horizons were broadened perhaps most in terms of culture and academics. I was exposed to such a vibrant lifestyle through my meaningful studies about London and the world. It was challenging but incredibly worthwhile. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
Past Review London Calling

A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - Study London
The experience I had through IES is incomparable to anything I have previously done. I learned so much through not only classes but also personal development. I gained more self confidence, drive, lifelong friends, and a love for travel. I am extremely grateful for IES and IES staff for assisting me when meeting but allowing ... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I gained a sense of myself that I didn't know was there. There is something so raw about being practically on your own in a foreign country and having the freedom to basically do whatever you want. I met people and experienced things that have forever shaped me into the person I am today. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - IES Abroad London Center
This opportunity could not have come at a more perfect time. I had just finished my most grueling semester of college and my terms were coming to an end for my positions in both my business and social fraternity. I felt the need to break from the mundane and try something completely new, and the Study London program through IES ... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review

Past Review Take Me Back!
Studying abroad makes you grow as a person. You're in a different country, living on your own and fending for yourself for the first time. You don't have mom and dad nearby to help you in emergencies. You become independent and adventurous because this is a once in a lifetime experience, and you don't want to miss out on anythin... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: London - IES Abroad London Center
The Health Practice and Policy program through IES Abroad in London was such an amazing opportunity.

Not only did I learn from the academics during the semester, I also learned so much while experiencing the culture in Lon... - Simmons College View Entire Review
