Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

My work load was actually a lot lighter abroad.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

The program was well organized and the faculty was helpful!

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

As that you have a kitchen, you can just buy groceries and cook your food. It's the most affordable and healthy option.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

They took us on several trips, one trip we went to old ruins of a castle. It was amazing!

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Very safe environment and the health center was close by.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? As that I bought groceries and budgeted pretty well, it wasn't very expensive. Taking taxis places was the only really pricey thing, but even those weren't too bad.


How would you rate your language skills at the beginning of the program? None
