A student studying abroad with Study Abroad in Egypt at the American University in Cairo
It is good to be quiet and observe, being a good listener is very helpful. Dress modestly and behave in the same manner. I learned a lot about the Muslim Religion and their customs. My experience in Egypt was wonderful, everything I could have hoped for. I truly wish the University did not find it necessary to keep closing f... - Baylor University View Entire Review
The people that you meet here will change your life. Getting to know the city will quickly help you to feel like you've accomplished something grand. Dealing with the constant hassle of the city (the traffic, the pollution, the different customs, etc.) will help you be much more patient. Overall, this experience will change y... - SUNY Purchase View Entire Review
Very worthwhile - I feel much more confident in my ability to handle new situations, learned more about an exciting new culture, refined my language skills, and made WONDERFUL friends who I still keep in touch with two years later. It was excellent, despite some of the programs imperfections. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
I gained a lot more patience from this experience due to the bureaucratic mess on the AUC campus. Also, I got to see how a tiny segment of the upper class of Egypt lives and thinks. - SUNY - Binghamton View Entire Review
The language and culture experience made every problem with the program itself worthwhile. - Austin College View Entire Review

DEFINITELY! It is an amazing cultural experience and gave a greater perspective of the world, especially learnt the Arab side of the story about world politics. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Undoubtedly the most worthwhile experience of my life. Egypt is a fantastic place! I absolutely loved my time abroad, and I wish I were still there. I feel very connected to Egypt, I made long-lasting friendships. I am right there with the Egyptians during their protests (in spirit, clearly), and would never feel so strongly if ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Absolutely! Studying abroad should be a requirement for every American college student, regardless of area of academic study. Our world is too small and shrinking too fast for our students to not have first-hand knowledge of another country. - American University View Entire Review
Past Review This Is Egypt
Yes, I want to go back. It has made me see that I really want to focus on the Middle East whether in Political Science or in History. - Presbyterian College View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was amazing, I learnt so much from my classes and my classmates. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I cannot put into words how much studying/living abroad changed my life entirely. I am a science major, but found a new passion for world politics, Middle East culture and languages while I was abroad. I had always traveled abroad before living abroad, but there is no comparison. Living abroad provides experiences and outlook... - Tulane University View Entire Review
My experience in Egypt was absolutely worthwhile, and though it is not the easiest type of study abroad experience, it added a whole new dimension to my understanding of the Middle East and my understanding of myself as an American. I am a Middle Eastern Studies major and I had traveled to Morocco and Turkey before I came to Egy... - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
Egypt is a rough country. - Tufts University View Entire Review
