Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I learned from a new perspective that I would not have been able to experience if I did not study abroad

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

They were very knowledgeable and helpful

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Lived in a corridor style, communal kitchen, single room, each room has its own bathroom <br /><br /> The accommodations were nice, the dorms are strategically located in the vicinity of the classrooms

* Food:

I will give the prestigious "5 out of 5" globes ranking because I found myself eating much healthier than I ever do in America.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

It would be very difficult for any college student to NOT have fun studying abroad at Lancaster University

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

No complaints

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? I forgot to trade in my excess British Pounds for American Dollars before I left. Don't make my mistake.


Language acquisition improvement?

This really isn't a fair question. I'm a native English speaker and I went to an English speaking country. I suppose I now know a wide variety of British slang?
