Overall Experience
Studying abroad was the best decision I have ever made. It was incredibly worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself- I learned that I am very sentimental and that is important not to take experiences like this for granted, and I also learned what I want out of my life, and what priorities are important to me in the place I live. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
August 09, 2018 The Best 4 Months
Learned so much about other cultures, living so far away from home, communicating with people so difference from yourself. BEYOND worthwhile - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review

August 10, 2016 A New Outlook On Life
Traveling to Australia was the first time I ever left the country and I grew a lot throughout my experience. I gained a profound interest in exploring the world and meeting new people. Throughout my schooling at Rochester, I had met many people throughout the world but nothing compares to actually traveling to a different countr... - University of Rochester View Entire Review

February 14, 2016 Best Time Ever!
It was so worthwhile! I got out of my comfort zone and met people who are unforgettable and have changed my way of thinking. Not to mention Australia is the most beautiful place in the world. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
I had never really traveled before, so I really learned how to be independent and to be on my own. At first, I was incredibly homesick and the adjustment was very tough, but after a month or so, I never wanted to leave! It was absolutely incredible. I learned so much about myself and have a very different perspective on foreign ... - Tufts University View Entire Review

Past Review Ies Sydney
My experience abroad with IES was so amazing it’s hard to describe with just one review. IES provided me with the opportunity to study abroad in Sydney, Australia during the Spring 2014 semester. Little did I know before going, this trip would eventually change my life. IES made every transition from living to school situatio... - Southern Methodist University View Entire Review
I think I definitely caught a travel bug, because now all I want to do is go places. I also really enjoyed interacting with the people. Learning about there history, both postive and negative, was eye-opening, because the similarities with our own history made me question things that I'd gotten so used to I'd kinda stopped think... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned how to be a more independent person and how to adapt to new environments. It was probably the most worthwhile trip I will ever go on. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Study Abroad was worthwhile. I learned the importance of getting to know everyone regardless of what they look like, what religion they practice, or what views they have. I also learned that the concept of family extends far beyond the ties of blood. - Sewanee: The University of the South View Entire Review

I learned how to maneuver a completely foreign city, make friends with people of different cultural backgrounds, and just became more mature in general. This experience was very worthwhile. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
February 03, 2016 Amazing!
Studying abroad through IES at the University of Sydney was an incredible experience. From the moment I stepped off the plane I was in love with Australia. Switching up the environment in which you live and learn completely changes your worldview and provides you with opportunities that you never knew were out there. In additio... - Ithaca College View Entire Review
All I can think about now that I'm back is all of the places I want to go back to or have added to my list of places to travel. I also made some of my best friends during those five months who I know I will stay in touch with for years to come. Living on my own in another country was hands down the best decision I've ever made -... - Texas Christian University View Entire Review
I had the best four 1/2 months of my entire life in Sydney. I went to the University of Sydney and L O V E D it. It's the perfect location between being close to the city and the beaches. The program really tries to get you adjusted to the life. The two program directors at the centre in the city, Matt and Kristen, really made a... - Ithaca College View Entire Review

Going to Australia was one of the best decisions I made in my college career. Between the sunshine, great food, awesome trips, and amazing experiences I never felt like I was bored.

Past Review Amazing.
Definitely worthwhile. It was interesting to see the different perspectives of the US, Britain and more. - Ithaca College View Entire Review
