A student studying abroad with National University of Singapore: Singapore - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
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

I would definitely be open to living in Singapore at some point in the future. The program was worth doing, just wish I had gotten more time to spend there! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with National University of Singapore: Singapore - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
From this experience abroad, I grew personally and professionally. I have witnessed a wide range of cultures and the differences in them. It is very interesting to learn about the locals and their traditions. I became more accepting and respectful of the different cultures that I was exposed to. Not only that, I was able to see ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Yes. Learned a lot about the region and about myself. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was incredibly worthwhile; I gained an increased familiarity with other cultures and patterns of thinking, and I ended up learning more than I could possibly communicate in this space. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
Yes, of course! Cultural relativism. It was an amazing experience and a great opportunity to meet new people, challenge myself to try new things, meet new people, and strive academically. It has also made me appreciate the United States as well, and all of our silly amenities and leisure. - University of California - Merced View Entire Review
YES! I loved studying abroad. I met wonderful people that are friends for life and I saw and experienced things that I never would have expected. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience it exceeded by expectations . I wish i had done a year instead of ust a semester. - Tulane University View Entire Review
Singaporeans are just as smart as Americans, but will get paid half the salary. In indonesia, you can hire a servant for 200 per month. You get get a computer programmer, for 400 per month, and the best programmer for 2000. This means, 30 thousand in Indonesia is like 150,000 in America. In Cambodia, a policeman will be your tou... - Rice University 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

I was reminded of the eastern way of thinking and acquired some networking in my home region. - Tulane University View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself as well as various cultures of the world. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
On my travels, I realize that despite some countries being under-developed, they showed a sense of humility and pride. But most people from the west (like other exchange students) don't have that, nor do they understand that different cultures have different ways of perceiving and living life. Please be culturally respectful ... - University of Hawaii - Manoa View Entire Review
