Overall Experience
I learned that I want to continue traveling and living abroad, if possible. The experience was extremely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Surviving and thriving in a big city. Took challenging and unique courses not offered in many American universities. Learned how to take care of myself in the “real world.” - Wellesley College View Entire Review
The experience was definitely worthwhile. There's nothing I wish I'd known before going that isn't just learning-while-doing, so I just suggest any prospective General Course students just go in ready to have a new experience, and be surprised by all the things they don't know. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
July 03, 2022 Incredible
I can say it was the best year of my life, making amazing friends, living in central London a city I fell in love with and studying in a prestigious university. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I did not attend in person at all or travel to the country, but the online support was there from LSE. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the branches of study I was interested in, which were the reasons I applied to the program in the first place. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Since my experience was cut off by a pandemic, any lessons I might have learned were instead replaced by the simple rule that you shouldn't take any experience for granted. I delayed some museum trips and other experiences because I thought I still had three months left. Living on a budget and planning for the future is good, bu... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Fun
I learned a new form of essay writing as expected of UK institutions, and how to take time off. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Maturing. Growing. Realizing that things that go on at my home school are so trivial. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A different geographical setting gave me a different perspective in viewing many things; Also, London/ UK is a culturally prosperous city/country, which means you could enjoy history, museums, arts... - Brandeis University 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. The opportunity to live a full year in a foreign country while still receiving a top-notch education was incredible. Truly one of the best years of my life. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
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. It helped me learn in new ways, and also allowed me to appreciate my institution at home more. But more than the academic experience, I gained the op... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My experience abroad was truly invaluable and worthwhile. It provided me with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live independently and mature as an individual. The rigorous academics offered me a chance to expand my knowledge and skills in a global setting, while the access to travel allowed me to immerse myself in different c... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

Independence and accountability - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Learned to live on my own - Wellesley College View Entire Review
new insights into policy and international politics, friends, confidence, and yes all worthwhile - Wellesley College View Entire Review
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
Past Review Was Great
it was worthwhile. I learned a lot from being in europe/in my classes. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I have gained a sense of self-confidence in myself to take ownership of my education and to be self-sufficient financially. London has taught me to be comfortable with myself, which is a trait I will carry with me for the rest of my life. - Wellesley College 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
