Overall Experience
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

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
It was definitely worthwhile, and I learned a lot about myself, as well as how to live on my own in a foreign country. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
While abroad, I gained a lot more independence, from having to cook all my own meals to navigating through places I had never been to alone. I also found it valuable to practice finding community in a place where you know no one. I think my time abroad was absolutely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Time Of My Life
I gained a new found Independence. It makes you more confident in doing things. I became more confident and grew a lot - Marywood University View Entire Review
I learned to live on my own. I learned about a different culture and the joys of travelling. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I am so glad I did this. I got to travel and learn so much. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Indepence! I really got out of my comfort zone in almost every aspect of my life, which was difficult at times but was necessary for my growth and development as a global citizen. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Refreshing
My small day-to-day stresses at home don't matter in the grand scheme of things - the world is much bigger than those worries. - Middlebury College 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
The fact that I didn't need to focus on academics allowed me to do a lot of exploring and I learned a lot about myself and the world outside of class. It was 100% worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Living on my own and individual travel. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
February 02, 2017 East London Experience
I learned to live in a culture different from my own; I learned how to become more independent and interact with people from different backgrounds - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent in life and with learning in general. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I think being a responsible human being, as in taking care of myself, cooking and cleaning for myself, was a good experience. I also realized that I love living in a big city, so I know after college where I should search for job opportunities. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Queen Mary University of London / QMUL: London - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I gained a lot on insight on the history of East London and London in general. Traveling after the semester is the best part. During the traveling and the program itself the interaction with people from all over the world expands your understanding of the world. It was definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
The experiences I gained as an actor made my experience worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I was able to take classes abroad that I wouldn't have been able to at Middlebury. I also met a handful of people who I would never have met if it hadn't been for my time abroad, and I became much closer friends with another Middlebury student who was studying at the same university as I was. I would say just those friendships a... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
