Overall Experience
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
Yes, amazing experiences all the time. Got to travel the world and meet amazing people, all while living in a new environment. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Between life long friends and new found confidence and independence, I have gained so much from this experience. Studying abroad has been one of the most worthwhile and rewarding experiences of my college career. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review It Was Alright
Became more cosmopolitan and multicultural - Brandeis University View Entire Review
While most Americans became really close with other Americans abroad and they traveled together and took really cool photos all over Europe, I chose to join a sports team instead. While this took up much of my time, it was most definitely worth it. I feel that I made lasting connections with local students through the team and... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Lust for life. There's so much amazing stuff out there on Earth, being in London made me want to get out and live it. 100% worthwhile, if only to get out of the tiny Trinity bubble for half a year. And of course, take advantage of the collegiate financial net while living in another country. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Major independence - Brandeis University View Entire Review
There are so many amazing places to experience in the world. Take the opportunity to travel as much as you can and meet new people. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I would say that studying in London for a year has taught me a great deal about myself as a person and my ability to find success in a completely different academic as well as cultural setting. Honestly, I am going to miss London terribly when I leave in June and I think it will be incredibly difficult for me to return to the US... - Tulane University View Entire Review
I gained a better understanding of global culture and resolved to remain cosmopolitan for the rest of my life. - Vanderbilt University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing Time
I broadened my perspective on global issues and made amazing friends while doing it. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
most important difference with us education is you have to do study by yourself. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
I loved my experience abroad. I had an amazing time in London, and really loved living here. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
traveling around and getting immersed into the culture - DEFINITELY worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to live and study very independently. At a small school like Middlebury, that can be somewhat hard. I feel as though I can now live in a city after I graduate relatively easily. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Ordinary
I appreciate campus life more than before - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes, worthwhile. I learned about the different encounters one can have while traveling. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent, more self-sufficient. I also learned that I enjoy city-living, especially in a historic city like London. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Well, as I said in my course description, I'm now writing an honors thesis at my home university based on the British Constitution and what I learned in Professor Hazell's class. I am much more experienced as a traveler and thus am more confident in my abilities to go places on my own than I have been. I was able to see family... - Ursinus College View Entire Review
