Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

The only thing I found problamatic was the heat and lack of air conditioning in Copenhagen

* Food:

Our preplanned meals were a little minimal, but I also understand feeding 20 students can get complicated

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

I quite enjoyed going out and experiencing Danish culture by ourselves on the free days.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

I didn't really have any

* Safety:

There was the one shooting, but all in all it was safer than the U.S.

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

Well i was originally on the Japan program, but Denmark was on my bucket list.


* 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)

I needed some extra money, but all in all it was fine

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? No clue
Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Prep for more food money than you think you need.


* Did your program have a foreign language component? No
