Overall Experience
I learned so much about different cultures as well was able to travel around for cheap. I got a broader perspective of not only my field of study but other topics and issues too. It was just nice to experience what life could be like outside of America. - University of Southern California View Entire Review

That it wasn’t worth it leaving my home university. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Learned massively about Europe. Politically, socially, etc. London brings people from across the world and I loved being a part of that. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned that being open and receptive to new experiences, and fighting against the urge to be closed off when faced with an unfamiliar situation, is the best thing that any student - or human being - can do for themselves. - Wesleyan University View Entire Review
Past Review Very Fun!
Gained adaptation skills, learned a lot about the British culture. It was worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review New Experience
I learned how to handle myself in a new culture, and learned a lot about how to live independently. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I let myself be a londoner, and I loved every second of it. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself - what I'm capable of, what the boundaries of my comfort zone look like, and what I might want to do later in life. I think it was really worthwhile, because I've definitely grown a lot as a person - more than I would have if I had simply stayed home. - Trinity University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA-Butler: London - Queen Mary, University of London
I learned so much from my experience abroad! I studied abroad because I wanted to have a cultural experience and learn as much about my host country, and every other country I visited, as possible; and, I was successful with this goal. Studying abroad was an incredible, life-changing experience that has changed me as a person. I... - Drake University View Entire Review
An opportunity to travel all over Europe. It taught me to rate my priorities and responsibly budget accordingly in order to afford the travelling opportunities. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about what it's like to live and experience a different culture. I've been abroad on vacation several times, but this was the first time I've spent such a long period of time abroad. I got to experience the city, the country, and the culture in a totally different way. - Trinity University View Entire Review
A lot about other cultures - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Loved London, amazing place. - Fordham University View Entire Review
April 03, 2020 Until Next Time
Since I did a bit of traveling, I gained a lifetime of memories with new friends. I tried new foods, was exposed to a variety of languages and cultures and learned how to be independent and self-sufficient. I wouldn't give this experience back for anything. I only wish I got to stay longer. - Trinity College View Entire Review
January 16, 2019 Interesting
Learned about a new culture and the similarities and differences with the US. Became more independent as a person and would definitely do it again. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile! Because the courses I took were far less demanding than my typical Brandeis courses, I had a lot of time to just go out and explore the city. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself, and how I operate, but I also learned how to put myself out there more and be more adventurous so I could take advantage of every opportunity that was offered to me. Now that I'm home, I think back on what I didn't do, and I'm somewhat frustrated with myself that I let trivia... - Scripps College View Entire Review
Past Review Abroad
yes. a lot - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Living in such an expensive place really helps you learn to budget. When you're abroad you're constantly thinking of where to travel to next, so budgeting definitely comes in handy! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned that I really love to be in a big city. There's always something to do or somewhere new to explore. It was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much not just about the UK and the history and culture there, but also about how the other world perceives the US and our culture. I got to travel around Europe and see all the history there. I ate so much good food. I can't even explain how amazing this year was. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Life
It was worthwile to get several credits - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Great Experience
Meeting people from all over the world lets you learn a lot about various cultures. Also, how to cook. Definitely worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Abroad Time
I learned I don't want to live in another country and it was worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to adapt to new cultures, I learned how to accept different systems of education and growing up and how to work with them, I learned how I fit into the world as a American world citizen, and I learned how to make and keep friendships that I like to think will last even across an ocean! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
