Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I don't know yet because I haven't gotten any feedback.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Mostly in a hotel, with two days in a college dorm. <br /><br /> Everything was filthy. No internet. Our rooms were never ever cleaned and the towels, sheets, and pillows were black, yellow, and red, with mold and maybe a little blood.

* Food:

Need more south Indian food, it is much beter.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

I had fun.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Everything was filthy and unsanitary. I had caught two water-born illnesses. No one ever attacked us, and we occasionally had armed guards.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Get good at bargaining.
