Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The classes I took were with teachers from my university who traveled with us. Therefore, the way the classes were set up and run was exactly the same.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Very open and helpful to anyone who needed it.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:


* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Traveling to a new place is memorable enough as it is. MY favorite excursions in Prague was: going to see the John Lennon wall, the Prague Castle, The Prague Quadrennial (only every 4 years it is a giant theater expo), Going to see performances at the theaters, and sightseeing.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

If you use common sens you will be fine.

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)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Create a budget and stick to it. Plan ahead.


How would you rate your language skills at the beginning of the program? None
