I learned a lot about myself and definitely grew up a little bit. I loved it, and I wish I didn't have to leave. It was definitely worth while. I made amazing friends and got to travel around Europe.

absolutely. its made me a better person and its opened up a lot of new doors for me. View Entire Review
It was definitely worth it. I've considered archaeology and paleontology due to my class with Gustav Milne. This trip to London was my first out of the country, and it sparked a huge wanderlust in me - since this program, I've revisited London, lived in Italy, backpacked in Aruba, took a ferry to Greece, and slept outside in Ire... - University of Michigan - Dearborn View Entire Review
My experience was absolutely amazing. I was able to be a tourist and see all the sites ,as well as meet with numerous businesses to learn how they conduct business and how similar/different it may be from businesses in America. Besides seeing all the sites, our guided tours enabled us to gain a perspective of the culture that ... - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
I have gained a broader perspective on different cultures and even our own. I've become much more culturally aware. - Montclair State University View Entire Review
I in no way regret my decision to study abroad for a year. It was an incredible experience and I had the opportunity to travel extensively and make great friends both American and British. Living in the city was an educational and rewarding experience, and one I am anxious to repeat. Interstudy was a great program to help me ... - University of Virginia View Entire Review
I gained a perspective on international cultures as well as a new perspective of my own culture back home. The academic structure is very different in England and may be difficult to get used to but I can picture myself going back to study further. - Gordon College View Entire Review
Past Review Focus On Fun
I learned to finally have fun and take it easy. The only reason why I would not do this program again is because I felt that I was not academically challenged, and although people say they don't go abroad for the education part of it, I think it was still important to me to have good classes. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Lock your door. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with International Studies Abroad (ISA): London - Courses with Locals in Multiple Disciplines
So much has been given to me in five short months away from my home, that I never thought was possible. I've learned the beauty of spontaneity. I've learned how much more there is to this world, beyond what I've known for so long. I have learned how much I am capable of - living in a completely new environment, exploring a ci... - Xavier University View Entire Review

It as impacted my awareness so much more. To be over in England really helps to understand the people better and what they do, you learn history. I became more interactive with the world. Traveling around Europe you have to research the country before you go, learn what is polite and what not to do, and better blend in. I have b... - St. Cloud State University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself, and got to experience more culture than I ever have. It reinforced my previous academic and career goals. I find myself missing London now, and would go back in a heartbeat. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
I learned a lot about being independent and got a good glimpse of reality mixed in with the absolute fantasy. Many of my friends who went to places like Costa Rica and South Africa expected a lot of cultural differences, but said they were disappointed. I went to London, a place where they speak the same language and seem simila... - Marietta College View Entire Review
