Overall Experience
We were only in London for 10 days and our time there was very scheduled and regimented. We had only an afternoon or two on our own. I am in the process of planning a trip to see the rest of the UK (while stopping back in London too, of course) - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
I grew as a person and was educated on so many different cultures. It made me realize that there is so much of the world unseen and so much to gain from experiencing places around the world, and if I get the opportunity to go abroad again; I would do it in a heartbeat. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
I am more confident in myself. You change after living abroad. I am more outgoing now and more open to new things and places. It was the best experience. I hope to one day live in London when I am older. - University of Florida View Entire Review
This venture made me aware of the world outside of America, and that seeing what is on the other side of the world makes one appreciate their own. - Southwest Tennessee Community College View Entire Review
It's really made me think about how America is viewed by the world and how we view other countries. I've also learned a lot about myself and what I want for my future. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was worthwhile. I learned about the people and culture of London and I felt that I grew as a person. I feel more independent and outgoing because of my trip, I feel like I can take on anything. - Grand Valley State University View Entire Review

Past Review
The experiance was definitely worthwhile. I would do it again in a heartbeat, minus the getting sick. It was wonderful to be on my own. I learned that I could be on my own and not have to worry about myself. Meeting the different kinds of people threw me for a loop but it was nice to listen to them and share stories. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
