Overall Experience
I learned a lot of different cultures and being in another part of the world. While learning a lot about Australia and it's people, it also gave me the chance to learn more about myself. I think this experience was possibly the best thing I've ever done in my life. I wouldn't be who I am today without it. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
February 09, 2016 Go Down Under!
I gained a stronger sense of independence for sure. I learned to live in the moment and immerse myself in another culture completely. It was most definitely worthwhile and I wish I could do it all over again. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned how to live completely on my own, how to create a budget, and abide by that budget. I also gained more confidence in myself, improved my interpersonal skills, met some incredible people, and saw some of the most amazing sights in the world. I highly recommend going abroad if you ever get the chance, you won't regret th... - Drew University View Entire Review

I learned how to make friends in an environment where I knew no one and couldn't run home. I learned how to emerge myself in a different but similar culture - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I gained so much- from confidence to my view on life- I learned a lot about myself and where I want my life to go. - Manhattan College View Entire Review
I learned so much and it was definitely worthwhile. I learned how to be on my own and manage things without my parents. I learned a lot about a different country and how things are different culturally, educationally, and socially. I gained a lot of new insight about the world and how different people are all over. - University of Dayton View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. Between the friendships i gained, to being on my own away from my family for 4 months to experiencing the amazing places Australia had to offer, I would go back in a heart beat. - University of Iowa View Entire Review
February 25, 2015 Semester Of A Lifetime!!
I went on my study abroad trip with the idea that I did not need a life changing experience to happen. I just wanted to see a beautiful place of the world. Somewhere along the way, between navigating foreign cities, trying new foods, making new friends totally out of your comfort zone.... I grew into the person I'm meant to be. ... - University of Dayton View Entire Review

The Education Abroad Network was a great choice for studying abroad! Whether the most important thing to you is finances, one-on-one advising, emotional support, or additional excursions and activities, TEAN can help your study abroad experience to be one to remember. I learned a lot about myself and about the world. In general,... - University of Iowa View Entire Review

October 21, 2014 Tean Absolutely Rocks!
I learned how to live on my own and enjoy life way outside of your comfort zone. It was 100% worthwhile, I would not change a thing about my experience and would definitely go again. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned a great deal about Australian culture as well as history (I took an Australian history class). I feel much more independent, able to adapt to different situations with greater ease, and I gained friends across the world as well as right next door New Jersey. I recommend everyone to study abroad as it was an experience ... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
June 02, 2014 Happiness
Absolutely worthwhile. I'm getting excited just writing about it because I want to share my experience with as many people who are interested. I applied to the program and decided I was going with a week, so talk about impulse and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It was just such a rewarding and eye opening exper... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I learned who I am in this big world. And that I have a lot to learn. I'd do it over again a million times. - DePaul University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I found out a lot about myself, I received new perspectives on many things and generally have a new outlook on life. I got to experience some of the most amazing things in the world, it was worthwhile 1000000 times over - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Not to mention the lifelong friendships that I have gained, also the independence of being on my own was very valuable. What I learned while abroad was something you need to get out and do, not something that can be taught in a classroom. It was most definitely worth while - University of Massachusetts - Lowell View Entire Review
It is hard to sum up in words the experience that I had abroad. I have realized that there is a feeling of change, the knowledge of self progress, and the urge to continue traveling within myself. Simply stated my experience abroad gave me the opportunity to learn more about myself, my capabilities, and how to trust my own decis... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
October 29, 2015 Highlight Of My Life
I really learned to be an independent person during my time abroad. Living on a budget, planning your own trips, and being half way around the world really helps you grow as a person. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. - Lehigh University View Entire Review
I can't even begin to sum up everything I gained from my study abroad experience. It was so, so worthwhile. From meeting new locals, learning about a new culture, and being able to live outside of my comfort zone in such an amazing place, studying abroad in Australia was so eye-opening and really made me grow as a person. The tr... - Champlain College View Entire Review

February 08, 2015 When Can I Go Back?
Studying abroad with TEAN has given me an experience that nothing can compare to. I spent a week in Fiji, a place where I would not have had the opportunity to travel to had I not participated in TEAN, and then lived in Australia for four months playing on the beach and eating wedges with sour cream and sweet chili sauce. Nothin... - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
I gained experience that I wouldn't have if I stayed in the US at my American school. I gained more than insight and friendships from traveling and meeting international students and hearing other stories from locals my age. - University of Iowa View Entire Review
September 23, 2014 Once In A Lifetime
I learned how to completely immerse myself in a different city halfway around the world. To live completely on my own whilst learning a new culture. I learned the key to traveling and seeing new things and learning to enjoy every single second of it. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
I can't even begin to explain the amazing experience I had. I would do everything again in a heart beat. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I matured a lot during my semester abroad because you learn how to survive on your own. You don't have your parents or friends back home to help you if you need help. Made me want to travel the world even more because it was such a great experience. - Nichols College View Entire Review
