By studying abroad, I had the opportunity to see the world through a different perspective. I learned different learning styles of education such as observing different cultures, learning different languages, new career opportunities.

This experience was definitely worthwhile. I learned a new appreciation for different cultures and ways of living. Even though it was not what I am used to, living in another country is a great way immerse yourself in another culture and learn about how they live. I also met so many different amazing people that I got to share... - Wheelock College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and my innermost qualities and that definitely helped me grow as a person. It changed the way I view America. I have always been culturally aware, because I am a first generation American, whose parents came from Greece. - Suffolk University View Entire Review
Yes it was extremely worthwhile. It is important to realize that the world does not revolve around the country in which you live in. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

I become so independent, non-judgemental, understanding, and patient as a result of this experience. I plan to someday travel back to Australia or get my doctorate there. - Monmouth University View Entire Review

I learned so much about Australian culture whether it be about the aboriginal people or about how different it is to American culture, it definitely opened up my eyes. The travels and activities I've done have revealed my adventurous side and will forever be some of the best memories I have. - University of St. Thomas - Minnesota View Entire Review

Australia and the program itself were both very costly but I felt the experience was well-worth the funds, just something I had not prepared for. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
My abroad experience was simply amazing. I loved it so much that I decided to go back to school for a second Masters. I have made friends of a lifetime which was odd when you think of your friends back home. However, being so far away, many of them were not just friends, but family. Because of that I have travelled to many of my... - Macquarie University View Entire Review
Past Review My New Home
I learned SO MUCH from my experience, it would be impossible to summarize it. I've travelled all over looking for the ideal place I would want to live for the rest of my life, and finally I felt like I found my home in Australia. On top of that I got a lot of research experience that I couldn't have gotten elsewhere. - Oregon State University View Entire Review
The opportunity to study abroad as a student was such an amazing adventure for me. I spent 4 months studying Neuroscience in Sydney, Australia and every single thing about my program exceeded my expectations, as did the location and kindness of the people who helped me along the way - both at ASC and abroad. Learning in a classr... - Agnes Scott College View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. I had a chance to also do a research internship with the psychology department and worked on two projects with Ph.D. students. I learned about the education system in Australia and also decided to pursue research my senior year in college. - Mount Holyoke College View Entire Review
My semester in Australia was the most amazing time of my life. I learned so much about the culture and most importantly, myself. I met people from all over the world, made friends I will keep forever, and saw places I never dreamed of. I would never trade the experience I had and I would recommend this to anyone in a second. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
