That I am able to manage my studies, living alone and making new friends. - Pablo de Olavide University View Entire Review
March 31, 2021 All The Best Things
I gained a lot of wonderful experiences, independence, self-assurance, and flexibility. Putting me in a dorm with first-years felt odd at first but it was a new experience for all of us and thus I was easily able to make new friends and explore the city / college experience with other newbies. - University of San Diego View Entire Review

I grew significantly in my independence through living in a foreign country and solo traveling across Europe during my breaks. I grew in my understanding and appreciation of several different cultures and made friends from all over. It was certainly worthwhile, and I would recommend it for anyone. - University of California - Irvine View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Queen Mary University of London Study Abroad programme
I gained a holistic outlook on business and working internationally. I learned about new cultures, experienced several cities and countries, it opened my eyes and my mind to succeed. I became more independent and autonomous, gave me inspiration and confidence to take on new challenges, and was an amazing way to wrap up my underg... - University of Toronto View Entire Review
So worthwhile, I learned to step out of my comfort zone and become flexible and resilient despite COVID changes and uncertainty. - Northeastern University View Entire Review
I grew up, honestly, I learned to become myself without the stress and meeting expectations from my family and friends from home, I was able to be my true self. - Queen Mary University of London View Entire Review
I became more independent and confident in my ability to travel and meet new people. - Columbia University View Entire Review
It was completely worthwhile, as I gained good friends and the experience of living in another city. A big thing I learnt was to be flexible and calm in unexpected situations. - Monash University View Entire Review

I learned that it is hard to adjust to it raining everyday but you have to make it worthwhile. You are only there for a, what may seem long, short period of time and you should go out and do everything you can because you never know when things can change (i.e. COVID 19). - Barnard College View Entire Review
Met such incredible people (mostly all from the UK or Europe). I had the best time and I recommend everyone should go abroad! You learn so much about yourself. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
August 27, 2019 Sub Par
I think I learned how to ask for help when I need it and learned how to voice concerns or issues in uncomfortable situations. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I got to see a lot of London, and had ample time to travel thanks to my one month vacation, and only one exam in May. So that was defenitely worthwhile. I was cast in a student production also, which was an experience I was really grateful for because it helped me get to know local British students on a more personal level and a... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
April 10, 2021 A Semester Of Growth
Forced me mature so quickly. Had to navigate extensive public transit for the first time. No one was around to cook for me so I had to learn how to take care of myself. None of that mentions the theatrical studies in which I engaged. - Saint Mary's College of California View Entire Review
I learned about London culture and the history of London. It was so worthwhile, because I was able to branch out from everything I knew. - Columbia University View Entire Review
March 30, 2021 Unforgettable
I loved the international exposure - Queen Mary University of London View Entire Review
Was totally worth it learn a lot from another cultures e had amazing experiences but the university was disappoint. The food part is always London. - Pontificia Universidade Catolica Do Rio De Janiero View Entire Review
Though my experience was cut short due to COVID-19, those three months abroad were the best months of my life. I miss the environment and culture a lot. There's a lot of independence both academic and personal. I learned a lot about myself during this time. - University of Southern California View Entire Review
That I'm able to live alone and take care of myself. I've also learnt how to approach the news and to deal with a pandemic by my self! - Sapienza University of Rome View Entire Review

Academic programs were challenging but well-managed such that deadlines were well-spread, and professors were approachable and always ready to help! There was plenty of time for exploration and experiencing the local culture like theatre, food and the best parks and museums! - Nanyang Technological University View Entire Review

Travels to museums and historical sites are wonderful. See differences in a lot of aspects. e.g interactive part in museums, people's attitude towards big events like COVID-19. My experience here boosts my critical thinking. - Queen Mary University of London View Entire Review

It was interesting to see how big universities run classes. It was also interesting to be in a co-ed school. My instructors were really excellent. I wish that they classes had met more often so I could've learned a bit more. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Exploring London was great, so that was good. I also learned that the American collegiate education system is much more conducive to actual learning and meaningful engagement with the subject. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
