Overall Experience
I learned that Americans live in a different environment then everyone else in the world and experiencing new cultures is great. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
December 20, 2018 Semester In Auckland!
I can't say enough good things about my time abroad. I learned to become a more independent person in the things I do on a daily basis and gave me the confidence to get out of my comfort zone! I met some amazing people and I can't believe my experience is over. Can I go again?! - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
It really is unbelievable how much you can learn while studying abroad, both inside and outside of the classroom. There is no better way to learn about the real world than travelling. I met so many amazing people and made so many friends. I have a newfound desire for adventure and traveling, and I have become more independent th... - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Auckland - University of Auckland
I learned a lot about my self while I was abroad. While I always considered myself independent and responsible this experience really affirmed that. I also found that I can be very resourceful when I need to be. I think one of the bigger things I learned though is that there is so much more out there to see and experience. Being... - Stonehill College View Entire Review

I feel like since being abroad I grew as a person and felt able to take on anything that came my way. It was completely worthwhile as I had some of the most crazy adventurous experiences ever in my life (Bungy jumping, white water rafting, swimming with manta rays). Looking back it was the most incredible experience I have had i... - College of Charleston View Entire Review

I learned how to be independent and to appreciate the outdoors in every way. New Zealand truly is an Eden and you MUST experience the country to get everything out of the study abroad experience. So many study abroad students would stay in their home cities and party on weekends and never get the real experience. If I could give... - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Education Abroad Network: Auckland - University of Auckland
I experienced so much culture while I was abroad in NZ. I learned about the Maori and took a class about it at the University. The experiences I had while away broadened my perspectives about different countries and cultures because I met people from all over the world. It intrigued me to travel more in the future after I gradua... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
It would be impossible to describe everything that I learned and experienced in New Zealand. I gained a cultural insights about New Zealand, Australia,, the Pacific, the United Kingdom and my own country. I became more independent, I learn things I would not have had the opportunity to learn in school in America. I had so much f... - Drake University View Entire Review
The people that you meet and encounter really impact and change your views on life. I made many friends from many places and all of them impacted me in different ways. It was also interesting having the opportunity to go to Fiji with my program. We spend some time at the local village and got to see how they live day to day. ... - Marietta College View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself while studying abroad. I feel as though I grew up a lot there and made friendships that will last a lifetime. I also discovered a hidden love of the outdoors and adventure sports which shocked my friends and family back home. After living in Auckland I realized how much of the world I haven't seen ... - The New School View Entire Review
My experience abroad was the happiest I have ever been. New Zealand was so welcoming and I learned so much about myself while I was abroad. I learned how to be independent and to try new things. I learned to more socially confident and take the time to really get to know my friends abroad. I walked away from New Zealand with new... - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
Through my experience abroad, I learned how to live internationally and outside of my comfort zone. As a fairly cautious person, I grew to learn the art of taking (smart and safe) risks, like going for a new club meeting alone to make friends or on overnight backpacking trips. I gained valuable and enlightening insight on the cu... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
July 10, 2017 Surreal
I learned more about myself than anything. I've never traveled outside of the country before so it was my first time. It opened my eyes to the world and I most definitely got the travel bug. I knew New Zealand would be gorgeous but I didn't realize how gorgeous. So clean, so safe, and so friendly. It was an experience of a lifet... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I gained confidence and a better way of thinking. It was completely worthwhile! - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Past Review There And Back
Going abroad was definitely worthwhile, especially with TEAN. They helped me break out of my comfort zone and because of that I feel like a more confident and independent person. This experience helped me grow as a person and helped me get in touch with the adventure that I had been missing. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Auckland - University of Auckland
I gained more experience than words could fit on this page! I was brought out of my comfort zone and learned how to expand my horizons so that I could experience more and not limit myself. I was immersed in a culture completely foreign to me and embraced every moment of it. I do not regret a single moment of my trip and TEAN hel... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review

I gained more than I could put it into words. It was not only worthwhile, but the best five months of my life. I learned that I really can live on my own and handle my own problems. I gained lifelong friends and a deeper love for traveling. I wouldn't be the same person if I hadn't gone abroad. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
Studying Abroad definitely opens your eyes to the world around you. Little problems don't seem as important anymore, and the world definitely begins to feel a lot smaller. The best part was meeting people from all over the world and hearing their stories. There is a lot of learning in traveling, and a lot of growing up and gaini... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review

This abroad experience has changed my life and has seriously impacted my future plans, i plan on traveling as much as i can and i'm sure i will end up back in NZ soon. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
It was the best experience I have ever had. If I was to go abroad on an American program again I would chose The Education Abroad Network however, I would rather go without a program next time, which several of my friends did. Doing this would save hundreds of dollars but I only recommend that for people who have already gone ab... - Rutgers University - New Brunswick/Piscataway View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile! The only thing I would change is going with the Education Abroad Network. I should have applied directly to the university, or, at the least, gone with a program that was honest about their rates (the Education Abroad Network raised their rates DURING the application process, after I had put in a de... - Lewis & Clark College View Entire Review
