Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Workload was manageable and the professors were good.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Was really good except for the fact that they did the orientation after we just got there...all jet lagged and all.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Beds were uncomfortable and the room itself had no control over the heater so nights were either really hot or really cold. Really didn't like this aspect of the experience.

* Food:

Food was edible if a little spicy at times.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Pony trekking in Wales was one of the best trips the school had and was a huge blast.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Very safe for tourists.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

A Look Back
