Being in Australia for 4 months, I was able to see amazing places that I had only ever dreamed of seeing.

September 06, 2016 An Ongoing Adventure!
I learned a lot about being on my own in a foreign place and how to navigate and survive on my own. I learned about another countries perspective on life and culture. Yes, it was an experience worthwhile that will impact me in the future. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
My time abroad was definitely worthwhile. I got to see so many new things and the most important thing I learned abroad was how to travel sustainably and to be aware of the tourist activities you partake in before you do so. - College of Charleston View Entire Review
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 gained a lot of new insight about the world and how different people are all over. - University of Dayton View Entire Review
learned what relaxes me. I don't have to get drunk to enjoy things. Life has a lot of simple pleasures - University of Hartford View Entire Review
February 05, 2017 Can't Believe It's Real
Studying abroad opens you to so many new things. Sights, friends, and memories you will never forget. It's an excursion of a lifetime you won't regret taking. Not only do you learn so much about your new home, but you learn an ton about yourself; something staying stationary will not do. Australia is full of beautiful places and... - Lasell College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned a great deal about the subjects that I took courses in and Australia as a whole from my experiences abroad, but most importantly I began to learn more about myself. Away from my parents for an extended period of time, I made decisions independently of anyone else, and the decisions that I made helped me to figure out w... - Bryant University View Entire Review
September 18, 2016 A Dream Come True
I gained so many unforgettable memories and friends while I was abroad, but more importantly I learned how to truly make myself happy. I went abroad expecting to create amazing memories (how could you not when in Australia) but what I didn't expect was to learn as much about myself as I did. Prior to studying abroad I was very i... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review

The experience was very worthwhile as I was able to learn a lot about who I am and more importantly the country I was in! - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review

August 31, 2016 Best Time Ever
I gained so much abroad. I have met my very best friend abroad who was in TEAN as well. I have learned so much about myself and who I want to be. I know I want traveling to be apart of my life forever now. I have never felt so free in my whole life! I would go back right now if someone had an extra ticket. - Augsburg College 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
