100%! If I could rewind time back to January where I was sitting on the plane from LAX to Sydney I would 100% do it. TEAN was such an easy company to work with that made the study abroad experience one that was exciting and not overwhelming. With their guidance and direction TEAN walked students step by step through each of the benchmarks that needed to be completed before studying abroad. They made what sounded like a lot of work a simple task to complete!

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
