Amazing! Past Review

By (International and Global Studies, Politics, Brandeis University) - abroad from 09/27/2014 to 06/11/2015 with

London School of Economics (LSE): London - General Course, Year-Long Study Abroad Programme

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
My experience abroad was very worthwhile. I had the freedom of discovering a new city completely on my own. It was a very thrilling experience not only in terms of freedom but exploring the culture of a completely new country and city. The education system was very different from the one I am currently in, it was a new challenge that I was looking forward to facing and I can confidently say that I successfully accomplished it.

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
