Overall Experience
It was definitely worthwhile, but very expensive - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile and I wish it was something everyone could or wanted to experience. I grew in my morally, professionally and became more independent. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
September 13, 2017 Sydney Semester
I gained invaluable life experiences that were definitely worthwhile. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Learned to be more independent - Southern Methodist University View Entire Review
I was able to gain a more worldly perspective. Very worthwhile. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Sydney- University of New South Wales
I learned so much about myself, about what I value in my life, and what I want to do with my future. It was very insightful being immersed into a new culture. I love my country (America) but the emphasis on quality of life in Australia really got to me and changed my own outlook on life. It was definitely worthwhile and if anyth... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Living in Sydney, Australia for a semester of college solidified my profound sense of independence. With a redefined sense of self-confidence, I have been able to strip away the nonsense of reality and focus my attention on what truly matters to the core of my being. Since my return to the States, I have been overflowing with gr... - Texas Christian University View Entire Review
Yes, it was definitely worthwhile. I now know I love to travel and that I want to do it more frequently. Australia does not present as big of a culture shock as other parts of the world, but the culture and beliefs still varied, were consciously noted, and I greatly value the new perspectives they have given me. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Living on my own in another country helped me realize that importance of taking every moment that comes my way and to not let these opportunities pass me by. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
I have gained a more global perspective and have grown more independent. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
Studying abroad was definitely fun, but I wouldn't really coin it as a life changing experience. Honestly it really just felt like a glorified vacation. It was a blast, don't get me wrong, but the University was easy, and I didn't really face too many great challenges that I had to overcome. - Austin College View Entire Review
I was given the chance to remove myself from my comfort zone and go to a place that I have always wanted to go to. My expectations were exceeded. I saw such beautiful things and tried new things. I was fortunate to travel so much throughout Australia and also to New Zealand. I would never change anything about my abroad experien... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Studying abroad in Sydney made me realize that anywhere in the world is only a plane ride away. In 2009/2010 I went back to Sydney under a 1 year work/travel visa and lived and worked there. I am now in South Korea living and working. Neither of these 2 things would have happened if I wouldn't have studied abroad. It opened my e... - Loyola University Chicago View Entire Review
My experience studying abroad with IES in Sydney, Australia was incredibly eye-opening. I studied at the University of New South Wales in Kensington, which is conveniently located about twenty minutes from world famous Coogee Beach. I loved studying at this university because my school back in the US is super rural, so it was a ... - Sewanee: The University of the South View Entire Review
January 30, 2018 Life Changing
Being on my own for so long and so far away from home got me out of my comfort zone and increased my self confidence and knowledge of the world. Extremely worthwhile, going abroad was the best thing I could have ever done for myself! - Southern Methodist University View Entire Review
March 01, 2017 Amazed By Australia
Gained independence and was able to learn my way around the city. - Tulane University View Entire Review
Studying abroad in Sydney was one of the best decisions I have made. It's impossible to describe my five month experience in a review, but upon my return to the states, I have recommended studying abroad to everyone. I arrived back in the US a different person than when I left, and the changes I went through while abroad shaped ... - Seattle University View Entire Review
Past Review Life Changing
I learned so much about myself and about surrounding cultures. It was beyond worthwhile! - Ithaca College View Entire Review

Past Review Life Changing!
The experience helped me grow in to a more well-rounded and confident individual. Studying abroad enabled me to challenge myself and become the best version of who I am. It was the most worthwhile experience I have ever done in my life! - Texas Christian University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Sydney- University of New South Wales
I learned about being on my own, I learned more about myself. I developed a better idea of what im passionate about. It was more then worthwile. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned how to be independent and plan trips where I wanted under a budget. I also learned more about city life living so close to Sydney. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Going abroad was the best experience of my life. I cannot wait to get on another plane and go see another country. Going abroad taught me to relax, enjoy my life, and pursue my dreams. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I gained an understanding of different cultures and accepting different beliefs, whether I agree with them or not. I would have gone through a different program than IES, but enjoyed every other aspect of my study abroad experience. Studying abroad allowed me to experience a marine biology class right by the ocean, and has ope... - Hope College View Entire Review
Absolutely! While it didn't necessarily impact my cultural awareness as much as maybe some other countries would have, I still got to experience being on the complete other side of the world, and they DO do things very differently. I also feel that maybe others would have more of a cultural awakening if they haven't been anywher... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
It was certainly worthwhile. It has motivated me to get abroad again in life and perhaps go back to Australia to work and live. It also increased my confidence. Knowing I can travel in the world on my own is rewarding! - University of Rochester View Entire Review
