Friends. Confidence. Yes - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA-Butler: London - University College London
My experience abroad was definitely worthwhile. I absolutely loved living in such a culturally diverse city and have made great friends from around the world. I was definitely pushed out of my comfort zone (in a good way) and learned a lot about myself and about Europe as a whole. It was a truly amazing experience. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to adapt to a new culture, which I have never done before. It was very worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
That I am much more capable than I ever thought. That great friends make a great experience. That I love traveling and I love London. I would do it again and again if I could. - Southern Methodist University View Entire Review
personal growth experience. Really got a chance to experience a big busy city and found that it was exactly what I needed. Easy to travel to other places in Europe. definitely worth while, but personally would have been better suited with a different academic programme. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned about cultures of different countries and gained a more worldly perspective. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to live on my own and in a big city from my experience abroad. I also realized there is such a big world out there for me to conquer and explore. There are so many different cultures and people to meet. London is a multicultural city with a amazing identity and people. Not to mention my classes as well. I was abl... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Eye Opening
I became even more independent than I was in the past. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA-Butler: London - University College London
I learned so much about myself, my studies, and the differences and similarities between American culture and British culture. I was enrolled in the chemistry department, so I was able to compare different learning styles in my concentration of study, which was a really rewarding experience. I loved living in London and going ... - Austin College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile- I learned TONS about British culture. Not to mention, I got to see so many vibrant and diverse cultures across the continent. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to live in a foreign country, and deal with people that I am not normally accustomed to dealing with. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Going abroad was the single greatest experience I've ever had. It opened me up to being spontaneous and curious and adventurous. I learned that planning isn't everything. I also met some of the coolest and influential people, both in London and elsewhere. I learned the importance of travel and culture. In the end all of that exp... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
My experience was extremely worthwhile. Mostly I learned how to be completely independent while at the same time interact and travel well with others. I also learned that there are different ways to study and learn. I had to completely adjust my study habits when it came to taking London classes especially at such an esteemed ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the ability to go on adventures by myself because I was in control of what I wanted to gain from my experience abroad. It was worthwhile because by the end I had a better understanding of London from living in the city and explored it instead of attempting to jetting off to a new place every weekend. I also... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I met a lot of new people, saw a lot of new places, and gained more independence. It was very worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about British and European Archaeology, and how it differs procedurally and theoretically from American archaeology. I also learned a lot about British culture that I would not have learned in the US. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Aside from obviously taking interesting classes, I learned a lot about the daily life in London and a bunch of other European countries I traveled to. Even though I live off campus at school, this was another great way to learn to really live on your own, in a brand new place with your own freedom. There are some really great pu... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Learned how to live by myself in cities. Very important. That part was worthwhile. - Franklin & Marshall College View Entire Review
I gained independence and became cultured and knowledgable about European history - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Through the program I gained independence, interesting acquaintances and friends, and a love of London. It was extremely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Independence, Broader view of the world - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A Englishman of a boyfriend (6 months and counting!). I learned stained glass at an oceanside retreat in Cornwall, I learned what it's like to be artist with absolutely no structure, I bound 6 books, I traveled to 5 countries by myself, I went to more museums than I have fingers and toes, I saw a bunch of shows on the West End, ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes, very worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was, without a doubt, worthwhile. I loved London. I loved the feel of the city, and the culture, the small, winding streets. Everything about the city was perfect. I gained more of a global perspective on what a city can be like. I also learned a lot more on how to be alone. I didn't make a ton of friends, and spent a lot of ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
