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?

* Food:

We were provided breakfast that was not too bad for college food and had to pay for the rest of our meals.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

I don't know what the health care is like. I did not need it at all.

* Safety:

It seemed to be a very safe city. I still would never recommend walking around alone at night.

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)

It all depends on how you spend your time. I had some trouble with it because I was really trying to do as much as I could while there and it is not a cheap country.


* Did your program have a foreign language component? No
