August 31, 2019 An Amazing Experience
LSE has a strong, slightly competitive work ethic culture. It inspired me to study harder and focus on my career as well. My experience was extremely worthwhile and I had the best year. Living in London gave me some of the best memories - Brandeis University View Entire Review

The confidence to live in a city, a global perspective through my interactions with and studies in European politics and a newfound respect for diversity in experience. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

My experience abroad was extremely worthwhile. Although it was a tough decision to make for financial reasons I am extremely glad I went abroad.

I've gained a lot of perspective on the diversity that exists in the world in all aspects of life, and gave me a different educational experience that I had at my home institution.
