Overall Experience
I gained a lot from my experience abroad in Singapore, but in specific being on Exchange allowed me an incredible freedom. A typical American study abroad program would have you live with other Americans and go on many fixed trips or exhibitions. As an exchange student, I was treated as a regular student at the university, livin... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about the local culture and culture of the surrounding countries. It was an amazing and mind blowing experience and I would do it again if I can. I met many wonderful people that I would be best friends with for life. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Going to Singapore was one of the best things I have ever done. I learned so much about the world, the way I as a white american fit into it, the way I can make connections with people who live half way across the world from me through a love of food, fun and kindness. I learned if I push myself the gains can be unmeasurable. ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

This was my first international experience so I would say that it was extremely worthwhile. Being in a culture so different from the United States was eye-opening. I definitely feel as though I can hold an honest respect for other cultures now, even though I may not agree with all the customs I think it is still important to l... - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Travelling for learning is great! But for myself, I've learned that travelling for fun is more relaxing. Still a great self-exploration experience. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with National University of Singapore: Singapore - Direct Enrollment/Exchange
Although the program was very worthwhile for me since I got to experience living in another country, adapting to the local lifestyle, and meeting and becoming good friends with many other exchange students, I realize that I would not choose to return to Singapore for study or work if I had the choice. Personally, the country is ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review What A Ride
The world is a big place with a lot of different things going on. What you need to find out is what is worthwhile and what isn't. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Living in South East Asia was a contextualizing, transformative, and enlightening experience. I was exposed to a part of the world I've has little exposure to. I got to eat some of the best food in the world and got to travel to some of the most beautiful parts of the world and got to experience living in on of the most modern ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
While I might have some complaints, overall the experience in and around Singapore was amazing. It was a great combination of an accessible educational experience and a fascinating and diverse region. I learned so much about so many different cultures, as well as what it means to be an American in many different contexts. This k... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
The coursework was focused on urban sustainability, and Singapore provided the perfect backdrop. Being immersed in a wildly different societal and governmental structure only served to enrich the experience. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I got to understand different ways of learning. I got to understand the ways that city planning can impact citizen's relationship to the land. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about the region's culture and customs, and it was well worthwhile! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I gained an appreciation for one of the coolest cities I had ever been to, and I got to understand SIngapore's unique culture. That said, the best part of the program was the travel opportunities it provided, as Singapore is perfectly located as a home base to explore South-East Asia - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I gained a broader sense of what my place is in the world. I feel more open-minded, daring, and outgoing than I was before. It was even more worthwhile to study in Singapore because I chose to do so for an entire academic year. It felt less touristy, and more real. Now that I'm back, I can surely say that my year abroad has alte... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
