Overall Experience
Access to world class economists - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Gained new American friends. School itself was not worthwhile but I met great friends in the course. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
August 28, 2017 Fun
YES - Wellesley College View Entire Review
The UK education is very different from the American education system, but I am happy I did it because it made me more appreciative of my home institution. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
July 08, 2017 A Year To Remember
I learned how to be independent, to advocate for myself, to make friends from university at the LSE, to enjoy the urban lifestyle, and be a part of London. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
If you can spend a year abroad in an unfamiliar city and in an unfamiliar academic setting, you can do anything. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was an invaluable experience to take courses that weren't from a US-centric perspective, and to experience living outside the US. I learned so much both in and out of class. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
August 25, 2016 Life Changing
It was amazing. Took really interesting classes, made incredible friends, and really got to know London. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A full year abroad is a much better experience than a semester. You have the time to invest in relationships and make life long friends. I don't feel like a tourist in London now and definitely have plans to live here again sometime after graduation. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
July 27, 2016 Awesome
Adapting - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I was able to grasp a better understanding of my own interests. I set some personal goals and was exposed to things I had never previously tried, such as netball (a women's British sport). - Brandeis University View Entire Review
June 12, 2016 Learning To Adult
Yes. I learned so much from mundane things such as cooking for myself, budgeting, shopping, traveling, finances, to making lasting personal relationships, to learning how to take charge of my own education. It was definitely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was a very worthwhile experience; however, the students and the extracurricular activities dominated the experience. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with London School of Economics (LSE): London - General Course, Year-Long Study Abroad Programme
Personal agency, a better work ethic, knowledge from world-class professors, experience with people from all over the world, a crush on Britain's public transportation, and the ability to play cricket. Worth it. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to operate effectively within the British higher education system. I expect this will be worthwhile because I hope to attend graduate school there. - Trinity College View Entire Review
Learned to deal with uncertainty. Learned to enjoy being alone and how to be more independent. Totally worth it. Extremely grateful I had the chance to do it. - Trinity University View Entire Review
July 25, 2017 Life Changing
I learned to live independently in a new country. I did not have any friends or relatives, so I had to make an effort in finding a community. Yes it was worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Academic achievement / travel experience/ make new friends - Brandeis University View Entire Review
There are so many perspectives and paths to get to where you are. Learned a lot about independence and the importance of a good community of friends to battle homesickness. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
While I thought I would be studying my majors at a deeper level, I learned more about myself and how to learn independently while at LSE. I traveled around Europe, and learned to navigate the city by myself, and these were the most valuable parts of my experience abroad. I also gained a greater appreciation for my home instituti... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
London is a place I would move to for a job offer. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

July 26, 2016 Lse General Course
I discovered a city that I would like to live in in the future and enhanced my understanding of Economics by learning in a specialized institution. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I have learned a lot from the courses. They were challenging but being able to take classes from well-known professors in the fields is very rewarding. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I absolutely loved my time at the LSE. I was pushed academically and personally, and I was able to see much more of Europe than I had anticipated. While certain aspects of the LSE's academic system--like its exam-oriented structure--were overwhelming at times, I was able to find the support I needed from other LSE students and f... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
