I learned to travel cheap, to respect other cultures and learn about them. - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Madrid - Engineering, Architecture & Science
I improved my Spanish language, had the opportunity to learn about Spanish culture first-hand, met many inspirational American and Spanish students, and became a more confident and independent person. It was immensely worthwhile and I would do it again in a heartbeat! - Villanova University View Entire Review
The biggest thing I learned from my experience studying in Madrid is that the world is much bigger than we think. There is so much history and culture that can be unlocked by just learning another language, and usually learning a language is easier when immersed in the environment. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
I gained new travel skills that I will take with me for the rest of my life. I learned how to examine culture and how it shapes society. I also gained confidence in entering new or different situations. - United States Naval Academy View Entire Review
Past Review La Vida Loca!
It was definitely worth it! I think letting myself get lost with my friends and learning how to use a real map rather than GPS always ended with an interesting story! Overall, I expanded my cultural awareness and widened my horizons, which is a must-do in your 20s. The incredible experiences I had and the long-lasting relationsh... - University of Rochester View Entire Review

Now, I embrace the unknown and find possibility in uncertainty. - Haverford College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Madrid - Engineering, Architecture & Science
It was an incredibly worthwhile experience to study abroad. I experienced being outside of my comfort zone, adjusting to a different culture, and learning a new language. I learned to see every moment (good, bad, and awkward) as a learning experience. I enjoyed widening my worldview, trying new things, and keeping my mind open t... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
I learned that the world is such a big place, and it is important to leave your comfort zone and go see as much as you can. This experience also helped me realize the importance of respecting and not judging things about another culture that I may not understand. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Madrid - Madrid - Engineering, Architecture & Science Program
As an engineering student, I loaded up on credits early on to make the opportunity of life abroad a reality. Like most engineers the options were limited, and as soon as Madrid was on the table I snatched it up and have yet to look back. Before the program, I had traveled to one other country and had a college career filled with... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
I was able to immerse myself in a new culture and explore places I would have never had the opportunity to see otherwise. I became more independent and confident, and it was definitely worthwhile. - Vanderbilt University View Entire Review
I gained a greater appreciation for the world. It sounds cheesey, but I think in America we get so caught up in American politics and American issues, we forget how much else is out there. I realized how foolish I was for not knowing anything about Spanish politics when all the Spanish people knew so much about American politics... - Vanderbilt University View Entire Review
It's incredible how different cultures in other developed countries are and the only was to see those differences is to live in that culture. - Santa Clara University View Entire Review
