Past Review Amazing
London was a great place to be - international, cultural and academic melting pot, I met and made friends with people from all over the world, the program was definitely worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to succeed in the British teaching style. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned that British schools do not function as American schools do. And I realized how blessed I am to study in America! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
British culture and lifestyle. Also LSE has taught me a great deal on macroeconomics and environmental economics. Their teaching is systematic and intense. I've gained the ability to take reading notes efficiently because two of my courses are reading intensive. And I gained the ability to write British-style essays, like citing... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Unnnnn
I learned a lot about time an people management. How to budget and live in a foreign country and how to network and work toward reaching my career goals. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with London School of Economics (LSE): London - Direct Enrollment/Exchange
There is nothing quite like experiencing studying abroad for yourself. You hear stories and see photos and try to imagine yourself in that position, but once you get there, nothing is how you imagined. At first, you have to learn how to get information and orientate yourself. Then, you begin to meet people and it hits you how di... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I met knew people, and discovered a new city - Brandeis University View Entire Review
To be honest, the quality of education is much higher at Brandeis University. The workload and academic pressure is stronger at Brandeis. Also, you are losing 25% of your opportunity to raise your GPA. If you are a student who wants to academically learn and do well in your school work to pursue higher education, I strongly reco... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Fun In Lonon
I made a lot of new friends. The UK education is very different from US, its a little more strict and requires a lot more writing. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
If you're doing a whole year abroad, it might be helpful to visit the school(s) just as how high school students would visit colleges. London was a great city and a great experience, but I felt the particular institution wasn't necessarily the right fit. And fit is one of the most important factors - and that comes in two compon... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I think the most rewarding thing I have learned is to be independent and self-taught in my courses because people in London and Britain in general are quite independent academically. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Transformative
Learned how to cope with stress and deal with personal issues. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I got a real sense for the feel of living in the UK, which will definitely inform my decision going forward whether to consider working in that country. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I got a great opportunity to study and live in London and it was the best experience I've ever had. I also learn a totally different and unique educational system in UK. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Time management and independence. The UK system is very different than that in the States. You have to study by your own and plan a ahead, since there are no midterms and nearly no assignments in the first two semesters. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
The program provided me a very unique way to learn economics. I met awesome people there. I love London more than anywhere in the world. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained international experience as it was my first time abroad, and it allowed me to experience a different culture, which made the trip irrevocably worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Gained incredible knowledge in econ / international history. Had the opportunity to explore a hip, international city in London and travel all across Europe. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with London School of Economics (LSE): London - Direct Enrollment/Exchange
This program was incredibly worth it. Not only did I get to experience education in a non-American system, I studied at one of the top-ranking schools world-wide and was successfully pushed up to and past the academic limits I had set on myself and now have access to a large alumni network. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I felt that I learned to be more independent, and I learned more about myself than I ever thought possible. I also think that I learned to appreciate other cultures, and most importantly that there is no one best way of doing things. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I made many friends, some who I didn't know from Bentley and many from all over the world. Learning with and about people from different countries and backgrounds on a whole new level than Bentley was incredible. I would do the program again in a heartbeat - Bentley University View Entire Review
study individually and study from others, manage time, work under pressure, very worthy! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Lse Gc
I love London. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review It Was Great!
It was worthwhile. - Bentley University View Entire Review
London is a very international metropolitan. At first I was a little disappointed with this feature because I was expecting to meet more British friends. But later I began to take advantage of the unique environment and learned a lot of interesting things from people all over the world. - Trinity University View Entire Review
