I gained a sense of freedom by being abroad in another country and being so far from anyone I knew. It was an incredible experience and was definitely worth while. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I have grown so much creatively and the time I have spent here has allowed me to gain confidence in my personal and academic skills. I have travelled a lot and gained great friendships (especially with the Canadians)! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was definitely worth it to study abroad. It was an amazing experience and I learned a lot about myself,life, and another culture. I'm a history major and the amount of history in Scotland was incredible and definitely helped develop another area of interest in history. - Providence College View Entire Review
ABSOLUTELY! I wouldn't change a single thing about my experience abroad. I learned so much about myself and so much about Scotland and international perspectives. Going abroad really allowed me to prioritize the experiences I want to have in life and I know that I want to return to Europe after College. Studying abroad is one of... - Trinity University View Entire Review
The study abroad experience was worth every bit i put into it (energy, money, stress,thought,etc). What i gained from it was independence, knowledge , friends, understanding of a whole new culture, chances of a life time. Most importantly, a whole new outlook on life. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I gained a lot of independence and adaptability. I feel comfortable making a choice to move further away and am even thinking internationally now for my future. It was definitely worthwhile and I would encourage all students to try their hardest to study abroad. - Oregon State University View Entire Review

I gained a wealth of knowledge about myself and I made the best group of friends I could ever ask for. It was the best thing I could have ever decided to do. I do not regret any part of it one bit. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I was able to adjust to a new culture and experience a totally different group of friends than I'm used to at Brandeis. The Scottish people are friendly and wonderful, as are the international students who I lived with. The academic system was certainly different and took some getting used to but I learned something new and in... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I had a wonderful time, and made the best friends who I am planning to go spend a couple weeks now 2 years later. I loved Scotland, the people were so friendly. In Europe it was so easy to travel cheaply. I also took very interesting classes, film and literature that focused on scottish and british culture. I wish I could have s... - Shenandoah University View Entire Review
Past Review
Yes - I feel like I saw the entire world! It also made me much more independent, and I feel like I can plan anything and make it happen. It made me appreciate the things and people I missed in the US, and it showed me how many amazing places and people there are in the world. - Providence College View Entire Review
