Overall Experience
I had the greatest teachers of my whole life, saw 25 shows in 12 weeks, and truly got a chance to understand what it means to be a person in the arts in the UK. It felt like I was given a backstage VIP pass to theater. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I was able to take many challenging and enriching acting courses my home school does not offer. I found excellent training at BADA with professionals who have made a name for themselves in this industry and I was given feedback which will help me through my entire career. I also made friends from other American universities and ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Valuable friendships, relationships with teachers and experiences in going to the theater and taking numerous classes about theater - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I definitely gained a better sense of self-sufficiency and how to REALLY take care of myself as an independent student. The kind of education you receive at BADA is very specific to the British tradition, so having that understanding, and being apart of that learning experience as a kind of "cultural immersion" in its own way op... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Independence, self confidence in my acting abilities, improved my communication skills, pushed me to not be scared of the unknown, to take a leap of faith and more importantly convinced me that theatre is the right path for me. YES it was worthwhile! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about classical acting and living truly on my own in a new city. It was definitely worthwhile to focus solely on theater and give it the attention I always want to give it when I'm at school but also studying other things. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
This program really is an intensive in classical acting. The teachers were dedicated and knowledgable, although some were a little harsh and not the best at communicating. London is a truly amazing city, and the resources there are unmatchable. There is a little bit of bullshit you have to sot through if you go to BADA, but it i... - American University View Entire Review
Everything. Knowledge about myself and my craft. Excitement about my future - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I was taught by some truly brilliant members of London's theater community and feel that my theatrical skill grew leaps and bounds. I also learned that having to fend for yourself in an environment that is often harsh is rough but a very necessary skill. I would definitely consider my time in London worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
More valuable tools for my craft. I definitely became a more cultured human being. It was AMAZING. When I got on the plane to get back to the US I felt like it was all just a dream. It flew by too fast. - University of the Arts View Entire Review
I learned more about theatre in the 4 months I was abroad than I had ever before. I made friends who I know I will have forever. I was exposed to a new culture and new theatre very different from that in the U.S. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Living in London was the best life experience I have ever had. That alone made this worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Past Review Ehh
Studying abroad itself was a worthwhile experience. However, a lot of damage was done to my psyche and made me quit the acting profession, a godsend if you really ask me. - American University View Entire Review
I learned so many new skills as an actor, as well as how to live alone in a city and budgeting skills. It was definitely worth it. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about living independently in a city, away from my family. I learned about a different culture, I experienced a city steeped in history and theatre. I learned what being in a conservatory style acting program is like. It was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
-Spend time with people who celebrate you rather than tolerate you -Do not tear yourself down to make other people content - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Easily the most worthwhile decision I have made thus far in college. Gained more than just a thorough grounding in classical theatre, but also a renewed and altered philosophy in my relationship to the stage. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself as a person and a performer and I embraced things that were unfamiliar. I also learned to look at life from a more positive perspective and look on the bright sides of issues. Of course it was worthwhile!!! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was completely worthwhile. It was a lot of work and I learned so much. I became a much more independent person. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
This was such an incredible experience for theatre majors as I learned so much about theatre and it was great training. I also feel like I know London like the back of my hand and fell in love with this city. Very worthwhile as I feel more educated about theatre. - University of Southern California View Entire Review
I gained an experience that I will have for the rest of my life. - University of Southern California View Entire Review
On the education side, I honestly believe that I learned more in my 13 weeks at BADA than I have in 3 years at college. The professors treat you like professional, adult actors, which helps you expand and hone your craft and work ethic. Also, seeing a minimum of 8 productions and being exposed to that much theatre was very eye-o... - University of Southern California View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Sarah Lawrence College: London - London Theatre Program
The classes and teachers gave me more confidence than I have ever had in my abilities as an actor due to the individual attention from teachers and the tight bonds formed with my classmates. I gained a background in many different classical British genres, as well as a great overview of British theatrical history and contempora... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Sarah Lawrence College: London - London Theatre Program
This was one of the best experiences of my life. I gained so much confidence and skill due to the intensive classes and the teachers who genuinely cared about each student and pushed us to reach our potential. I fell in love with London and am so thankful I got to live there and experience the beautiful culture, history, and t... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I tend to dislike the term "life-changing experience", but it is perfect to describe my stay in London. I produced the best work I've ever done, fell in love with a city, saw the best theater productions I've ever seen, grew tremendously as an actor, was endlessly inspired, and came back to the States as a much-changed person. I... - Bard College View Entire Review
