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... A student - Cornell University View Entire Review
a widen scope and broaden horizons. deeper understanding about the real business world. Yuxi C - 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 ... A student - Wellesley College View Entire Review

London changed my life. With every fiber of my being I want to go back there and I am looking at anything that can take me back. Agnieszka N - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I feel that I gained a lot from having the new experience of living in London for a year (as opposed to a semester), which allowed me to interact with the people and the culture over a longer time period, and attending a UK institution, which is substantially different from those in the U.S. I also am happy about the intellectua...

Academically, I think I learned a lot because it was so independent and a lot of the readings were everyday-relevant. Many opportunities opened up for me while I studied at LSE that I don't think would have been available had I not studied abroad. Socially, it was a great opportunity to travel to countries like Italy, Switzer... Melissa C - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I did not have much culture shock nor language problem, because I have visited London several times before. In terms of academics, all the courses I took were very challenging and interesting. Soohyun C - Wellesley College View Entire Review
it is not that I hated LSE, I just did not feel that I was prepared for it. It did push me and I learned a lot, but had to on the fly in order to keep up. London was amazing and I would love to live there again someday. Alix B - Tulane University View Entire Review
The courses were great and London was better than any city I've ever been, too. There is always something to do there. I love music and soccer, so it suited me. Steven L - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
Completely. So far it has been the highlight of my college experience. I became completely ingrained in another culture, met the most amazing life-long friends, and became inspirited to continue to step out of my zone of comfort. Sarah A - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Totally! I got to have a year worth of British/European experience and got the chance to know the other part of the world from a close distance. I also learnt so much more about myself, made great friends, and make great connections worldwide. Anran X - Trinity University View Entire Review

I plan on returning to LSE for my masters. After that I hope to find a job in London, and plan on spending the rest of my years in England. It is just an amazing place with amazing people. Even though I was only there for a year, I could tell that is where I want to be when I graduate University. Brian G - Tulane University View Entire Review
Studying abroad at LSE and living in London was by far the most life-learning experience I have had thus far. Professionally, my involvement at one of the leading universities on earth, within one of the financial capitals of the world, and having interned at a leading investment bank have certainly molded my aspiration to be a ... Daniel R - Trinity University View Entire Review
I had possibly the best year of my life. I made some life-long friends, got to understand a new culture, and was exposed to so many different people from all over the world. Also, living on your own in a big city forces you to be more independent and mature much faster. It was so difficult to force myself on a plane to come back...
