Overall Experience
I grew so much as a person while I was away. I was completely isolated from all family and friends in America and it really allowed me to find my way as an individual relying on solely myself. It was probably the best thing that could have happened to me at this stage of my life. - University of Tampa View Entire Review
October 07, 2019 Best Choice Ever
This was the most worthwhile college experience! I not only learned to be more independent, but I also learned a variety of life skills such as international communication, learning to travel (figuring out bus/train/plane) schedules, time management, prioritization, and much more! - Clemson University View Entire Review

September 25, 2019 Best Decision I Ever Made!
I learned so many life lessons while abroad. My time abroad was 100% worthwhile. Traveling across the world alone by yourself really gives you a huge confidence and is just an amazing experience. - Thomas College View Entire Review

February 26, 2019 Lovely Time With Tean!
I learned so much about myself as well as Australia as I was abroad. I was able to learn about local culture while meeting tons of new people! It was a great time to really just live life and enjoy all that Australia could provide! Going abroad was so worthwhile and I'm glad that I did not pass up the opportunity to do so! - University of San Francisco View Entire Review
I gained independence more than anything else. And I learned how to communicate more effectively. Most my good friends and I on the trip rubbed off on each other and now I think I'm a better person because of them. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
While abroad, I grew as an individual and was able to discover so much about myself that I never knew. Being in a different country forced me to break myself out of my shell and try new things. Me, a once quiet and shy girl, never would have imagined making so many friends and doing crazy activities like jumping out of an airpla... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review

I learned so much, I met all different people that i normally would not have been able to meet. it was definitely worth while. - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned more about myself 10,000 miles away on my own, in a brand new place than I ever thought I would. Every day was a new adventure with a new lesson attached to it! I came home with a completely new perspective on life because of the adventures I had, the people I met, and the culture I immersed myself in. - University of Cincinnati View Entire Review
My experience abroad helped me in so many ways. It helped me be more confident with who I am, and taught me how to and the best ways travel to different places, it helped me branch out and make new friends, and most importantly it taught me that there is a big world beyond my small town. Going abroad is an experience like no ot... - Colby-Sawyer College View Entire Review

I learned global perspectives, how to enjoy the outdoors around me while attending school, other culture, and Australian culture and history. well worthwhile - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I learned how much there is to explore outside of the US. I was in Australia for 4 months and traveled somewhere new every weekend and still felt like I could have seen more. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I wouldn't sacrifice it for anything! - Clemson University View Entire Review
October 04, 2019 The Best Program Ever!
Being half-way around the world really instills a sense of true independence, there’s no going home or having your mom around to help when you run into trouble. I learned to do things on my own which pushed me to enjoy doing things on my own as well. If nobody was around to head up to the beach or go to dinner, I found myself go... - Clemson University View Entire Review

It was 100% worthwhile. I gained new friendships and learned more about myself and got to really live on my own for four months. - High Point University View Entire Review
I learned about other cultures, how to travel on my own, and how to budget my money. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Studying abroad helped me to be more responsible. I had to learn budgeting and balancing travel with school work. I was able to see places that I'd never thought I'd be able and my expectations were exceeded for how beautiful they were. I 100% think studying abroad was worthwhile and I would do it again in a heartbeat if I had t... - California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo View Entire Review
I already knew that I had a passion for traveling before I studied abroad, but once I studied abroad it really just reminded me that traveling is my favorite thing to do. Studying abroad allowed me to visit places in the world that I have dreamt of going to, but never thought I would have been to at this age in my life. Studying... - University of Iowa View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Bond University
I learned what it means to be truly independent. Although living away from home at my home university was a step, nothing could compare to the independence I gained from studying abroad. The people I met there showed me what it meant to be a true friend and inspired me to be better. I came back from abroad knowing the type of pe... - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
I gained the confidence to step out of my comfort zone. This was truly a transformative period in my life and although I had the highest highs and the lowest lows, the whole entire experience was completely worthwhile. - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review

I had no clue how my experience would turn out- I am very glad I took a leap of faith and went for it! I found a great sense of independence I never knew was there, my confidence has sky-rocketed, I am more social, and I am more open-minded to the world around me. - Augsburg University View Entire Review
