Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with London School of Economics (LSE): London - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I learned to study with more self discipline since there are only final exams at LSE. I also learned to party harder. Balancing those two is a skill that is definitely worth while to have. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes, it was worthwile - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I was challenged academically to the point where I now better understand what interests me and what doesn't. I also learned to live in a large city, which brings many positive and negative learning experiences with it! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
A lot and yes - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Past Review It Was Perfect!
I learnt more about British culture. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I met a lot of different people and I learned a whole different academic system. Set in a unique environment, London provides a lot of opportunity to engage and learn from academics, societies, and cultural events. One of the KEY experiences at the LSE (different from small liberal arts college) is the significant amount of use... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about Europe and its cultural diversity. I also learned how to live and travel in a new country that was very different from the US. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned I could live on my own, which felt great. I gained a few very close friends which made the year worth it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Time management, increase in networking with professionals - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to take care of myself in a way I had never done before - managing my finances, cooking, ensuring that I studied sufficiently without the structure that Trinity provides. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I cannot begin to describe all that I gained from my time abroad. I learned how to be truly independent, to navigate strange places with little but a few words and a map, to experience new people and cultures, and really there is too much for a little blurb. I cannot every truly explain how incredible it was, but in short I thin... - Cornell University View Entire Review
Past Review Great Experience
a widen scope and broaden horizons. deeper understanding about the real business world. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained a lot more personally and culturally than academically. I learned more from debating and listening to my European friends and their perspective on politics and free markets than from the often scripted and uncaring professors in lectures. By living in an urban city, I also became a lot more independent--it's completely ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
organzing skill. setting goals early. work dilligently - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
Essentially, I got a fairer education outside the classroom than I did inside it. The format of General Course (finals = 100% of final grade) was an extremely difficult pill to swallow -- and one I'm still not satisfied with -- but the overall experience was worth it because now I have friends from three different continents tha... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review What A City
I gained perspective on the education I'm receiving at Clark. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I met a lot of new friends from all different backgrounds, and learned a lot from all of them. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Awesome
EXPERIENCE, EXPLORE - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I made amazing friends and had experiences I would never have living in a small college in Wellesley, MA. I was also able to attend career events that would not be available at Wellesley and interacted with potential employers. I was always happy and motivated because London is an amazing city with amazing people. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with London School of Economics (LSE): London - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
Adapting to a different university curriculum was very challenging and helped me grow as a writer and academic. I became more confidence in my independence and self. I reached out to organizations I wanted to be a part of based on my interests rather than career goals. I was on the LSE football team and strongly recommend joinin... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Great Experience
Time management and networking with professionals in my field of interest - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
I improved my self-reliance skills and was forced out of my comfort zone continuously. - Trinity University View Entire Review
The experience was amazing. The academics were ideal and I learned more in one year at the LSE than had the past two years at my home university. If you love math and economics it's a great place to be because the two are integrated so seamlessly. I was also able to plan my schedule in a way that made it possible for me to tr... - Tufts University View Entire Review
