A student studying abroad with Pontificia Universidade Catolica Do Rio De Janiero: Rio de Janeiro - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I gained proficiency in Portuguese and self-reliance. I've learned to live comfortably with little resources and now I have friends all over the world! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Overall, my study abroad experience made me believe that their was another way of living, loving, and eating. I discovered new academic interests in the field of visual cultural anthropology and documentary. I've also learned that it's important to work to live not live to work. - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
Yes, I learned a lot outside of the classroom. The place makes you extremely streetsmart, and the people there remind you to enjoy the smaller things in life, and cherish the things you have. It helps you disconnect from the digital world and enjoy life, love, and natural beauty. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Yes I definitely achieved my goal which was to learn as much Portuguese as possible. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Absolutely, studying abroad was the best thing I have done. I learned more about myself in those 7 months than I would have ever thought possible and I experienced the best semester of my life! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Absolutely, it was the best time of my life. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Yes, it was worthwhile. The international coordinators from both schools were incompetent in my opinion, but it was good to have a different learning experience. The library and internet systems were quite frustrating...I had to have a lot of patience! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
YES!!! I argue that study abroad would have been worthwhile for me at that time in my life no matter where I went. The program wasn't necessarily what I thought I was getting myself into, but I kept an open mind and I learned so much about myself and about the world. Going abroad was the best decision of my life. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Academically I would have changed what classes I had taken but culturally and socially I had a great experience in Rio de Janeiro. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Absolutely. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I will definitely return to Rio someday and visit all of the wonderful friends I made there. I appreciate much more now the complexity of living in another place and the complicating dynamic I add as a tourist/student/resident. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Great traveling experience, and food. - Pontificia Universidad Católica de Puerto Rico View Entire Review
Being in Brazil was worthwhile; studying at PUC was a waste of time and money. If I had to do it all over again I would go with a public university. - Tufts University View Entire Review
