Past Review Amazing
It was worthwhile, and I was able to expend my horizon both personally and academically. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
To go abroad was the experience of a lifetime. However, the way the school is run, and the impact on my results. I would never recommend this to anyone. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned for the first time what it was to live and be immersed in a culture completely different from my native home. It was very worthwhile, and I'm so sad it's over! - Bentley University View Entire Review
I definitely learned about being frugal and saving money only for necessities, however, I found that the costliness of the UK (specifically London and surrounding areas) made it difficult to fully explore and enjoy my trip. So I would say that lesson wasn't entirely worth it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Unique
How to interpret and open my mind up to new cultures and experiences. It really allowed me to grow as an individual making this a completely worthwhile experience - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned to accept other cultures and value the world's differences. It was definitely worthwile! I became more independent and confident as a result of navigating my way in situations I was completely unfamiliar with. - Bentley University View Entire Review

I learned to be a little more open and accept diversity. - Bentley University View Entire Review
Maturity, independence. It was very worthwhile - Bentley University View Entire Review
I gained so much independence, I learned how to travel and was exposed to so many new cultures, and it was completely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned a considerable amount about the culture and political aspects of not only the United Kingdom, but also the entirety of the European Union. The significant academic knowledge I accumulated was but eclipsed by the genuine friendships I acquired and maintain to this day. The only regret I have regarding this program is ... - Washington College View Entire Review
I learned how to live on my own and not be afraid to explore unfamiliar territory (literally and figuratively). This was absolutely a worthwhile experience! - Providence College View Entire Review
I got to meet some very interesting people, and see some things that I otherwise would not have been able to. - Bentley University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing!

A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: Royal Holloway, University of London
I definitely learned how to be more independent. The school doesn't help you along the way they do at Bentley which could be seen as a bad or good thing. During the beginning I definitely hated it but I think I was thankful for it by the end. I also learned so much about other places that I never knew before and didn't even real... - Bentley University View Entire Review
How different other cultures were, it was definitely worthwhile! - Bentley University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
Worthwhile, learned a different culture. - Bentley University View Entire Review
appreciate each and every day. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned out to adapt to different cultures and a new environment. It was definitely worth it, I just wish it were at a school in London. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I have a better understanding of how different cultures live their lives, and I know a lot more about myself after living on my own in a foreign country. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned that other countries aren't just places to be visited and explored, but that other cultures can be integrated into my personal experience and become a part of who I am. Traveling doesn't just provide voyeuristic opportunities, or chances for vacation; it opens up the possibility of living in different places and in dif... - Trinity University View Entire Review
Past Review Eye Opening
Yes. So much cultural exposure and wonderful new people. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
