Overall Experience
A lot about other cultures - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Loved London, amazing place. - Fordham University View Entire Review
I think that I became more confident because of my experience abroad. I learned an incredible amount about myself and an array of new skills. I feel that I grew into myself as an adult by taking this step away from my parents and familiar circumstances. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself in crisis situations and how I handle problems. I learned to go with the flow because it all works out in the end as well. There really is nothing to be afraid of. It was entirely worthwhile for the people I met, the places I saw and the adventures I had. I now I know that there are so many more ad... - Fordham University View Entire Review
I really learned what it is like to experience the English culture. I honestly made a home for myself in London through the relationships I formed and the memories I made while living there.

Absolutely. Besides making new friends, it was interesting to see things from the British perspective. And I was able to do a lot of traveling. - Tufts 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
I learned how to be truly independent. Going off to college is one thing, but when you really are away without access to the USA, and have to juggle things like money, new classes, unfamiliar teaching styles, and meeting a completely new group of people, it can be very difficult to adjust. For me, the best days were ones during ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A much broader view of the world and essential life, monetary, friend, and travel experience. It was absolutely worth it. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It has changed my whole outlook on my major, on my home university, on the whole country, and even the world. I feel completely different than how I was before, but in a good way. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
It was a great experience - Tufts University View Entire Review
