May 17, 2022 A Fun Experience
I learned how to better manage myself in a big city. It was worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I believe it was worthwhile to study abroad. I learned to be independent and get out of my comfort zone by living in and exploring a big city such as London. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
January 31, 2020 British Victory Lap!
It was very worthwhile! I learned a lot about myself, I took courses that Middlebury's curriculum could not offer me and had the amazing opportunity to live in a wonderful and contrasting city - Middlebury College View Entire Review
January 24, 2020 Good Times All Around
Learned how to live in a city. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I feel my primary area of growth was in learning how to live more independently and not rely on other people for entertainment. There were many times that I would spend large chunks of time completely alone in a foreign country, and a big are of growth for me was becoming comfortable with that. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Learned about so many different religions and cultures, was able to open myself up to people from all over the world. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
How to be independent, while learning about myself along the way. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Go To London
I gained independence, travel experience, had the best work/life balance of my life ... there's so much to say. It was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was interesting to function within a different academic system, but it did make me appreciate my education in the US. I also loved being able to go to so many museums and learn outside of the classroom. It was an incredible five months of living independently, getting to know London, and traveling all over. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I am much more confident to do things by myself. If I can travel alone in not only a foreign city, but also a foreign country and continent, then I can travel anywhere in the US and take this confidence into other activities. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA-Butler: London - King's College London
I gained a new appreciation and respect for what living independently really means. London gave me the opportunity to figure out who I am away from everything in my comfort zone. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I definitely got to see a non American-centric view of the world, which was nice for once. It was definitely a nice changed. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Incredible
I had wanted to travel my whole life and I got to do a lot of that and learn what it was like in a lot of different places. I got to see so many amazing things. Definitely a dream come true. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
While studying abroad has its own unique challenges like adjusting to a new academic system and learning to be self-sufficient, I made so many memories I will cherish for a long time. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
May 08, 2020 Life Changing!
It was definitely worthwhile. You learn a lot about independence and taking care of yourself both physical and mentally. Because IFSA does not have any "host families", you are essentially a "regular" full time student. Students can design their study abroad experience however they want. - Hamilton College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I enjoyed the city; exploring, biking, sightseeing, etc. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
January 21, 2020 I Love London
I enjoyed living in London. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
September 03, 2019 Unbelievable Experience!
I gained to appreciate other cultures. Yes. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Definitely a worthwhile experience. I learned a lot - had to learn how to live on my own to a further extent than before, gained the ability to enjoy exploring places alone, learned to go more out of my comfort zone and take on more responsibilities. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Living in London for a semester was incredibly helpful in providing an experience for budgeting and adjusting to independent life in a metropolitan area. While the academic aspect of this program, as it seems with many UK schools, is very dependent on major(s)/classes taken, overall there is a lot less academic work than a typic... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Personal skills, self-confidence--yes. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
The best 3 months of my life. Made the greatest friends ever and would love to live in London after graduation. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot, both in and out of the classroom. I was able to live in an Amazing city and had easy access to the rest of Europe. It was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I definitely learned about being independent and got to experience more cultures that allowed me to think about the world and people differently. I think it was worthwhile and gave me a chance to change up my college routine. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile, probably the best thing I've ever done. I learned more about the world and the people in it. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
