Overall Experience
I would describe my study abroad experience as the best four months of my life. I was given the opportunity to see and experience things that I will never be able to again. I met some of my best friends on this trip and fulfilled a dream that I never imagined would come true. I couldn't imagine going with any other program, TEAN... - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
I learned how to survive on my own in a foreign country for an extended period of time. I also gained experience in traveling to places around the world. My experience abroad was absolutely worth it. It was the most amazing thing I've ever done in my life and TEAN had a lot to do with it. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
Going abroad was an absolutely unbelievable experience. Going abroad changes you. Living and experiencing another country's culture gives you a whole new outlook of your culture, and gives you different perspective of the world. I learned more about the world in one semester abroad than I have in my entire college career. I als... - University of Iowa View Entire Review

Past Review My Second Home
Going into this experience I never could have imagined how much I would end up gaining from it. I assumed I would see amazing sights, meet great people and try new things. I never realized though that in a quick four months I would find a new home, make friends that feel like family and do things I never thought I could do.

I learned life lessons on how to handle relationships with my friends, family, and anyone in the world. The Australian way of life is greater than any other. I REGRET NOTHING - Bond University View Entire Review
From studying abroad not only did I learn a lot about the culture, but I learned a lot about myself. Being in Australia changed my life for the better and makes me want to travel the world. I think now from being abroad I try a lot harder at school because I want to go places in the world. - Augustana College, Sioux Falls View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
Australia completely changed my life. It opened my eyes to an entirely new world (literally). I never realized how much there was to see outside of the United States, let alone my home town in Connecticut. Since my semester in Australia, I have already made further plans to travel through Europe and hopefully one day back to Aus... - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
It gave me a new set of eyes in the world and helped influence my post-graduate career choice. I moved back to Australia a few months after I graduated (June 2010) and have been living and working here ever since. I never would have had the knowledge, confidence or even idea to go live abroad without my study abroad experience. ... - Otterbein University View Entire Review

Absolutely..best 4 months of my life. Caused me to stay another 5 months after - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
Traveling the world with people you have never met can absolutely change your life. By traveling to places like Fiji and Thailand while I was abroad, I have seen a way of life that I would have never known had even existed. It has put my while life into perspective and has made me grateful for the things I have as well as tole... - Pennsylvania State University - Abington View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was completely worth it. I made great friends, learned so much about myself, and had so much fun. I got to experiences so many things that most people don't get to do in a lifetime! I got to travel all around Australia, Fiji, and New Zealand and see amazing things! I highly recommend it! - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
ABSOLUTELY. I had to jump through many hoops to be able to get to go to Australia, but if I had all the time (and money) back again, I would definately spend it all the same. - Drake University View Entire Review

I learned how to navigate in unfamiliar places. I was not very good at directions but when I was somewhere that was nowhere near home I forced to learn and teach myself. Very worthwhile! - University of Kentucky View Entire Review
It was incredible semester with amazing memories I will keep for the rest of my life. Say yes to everything and try it all - you'll have so much fun and learn many new things. It was one of the most worthwhile experiences of my life. - Lasell College View Entire Review
I learned how to interact in an international context and got a lot of vital traveling experience. Gained a ton of friends that I will cherish for the rest of my life. 100% worthwhile. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
People who have studied abroad come back and say they've been forever changed. But the truth is, it's hard to put that change into words or perspective for those who haven't had the experience of completely throwing themselves into another world countless miles away from familiarity. I learned to trust myself on things more and ... - University of Dayton View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
My experience being considered "worthwhile" seems like the understatement of the century. It was the most rewarding, incredible, invaluable and FUN experience of my life and I wish every single day I could do it all over again. I learned a multitude of things not only in the classes I took, bu mostly outside the classroom while ... - Lasell College View Entire Review
Meeting people from not only Australia, but places like Norway and Germany helps to give a great degree of cultural understanding. I did group projects with a girl from France, a guy from Thailand and a girl from China. Living abroad shows you just how much there is to see outside of the United States, and has shaped my future... - Clemson University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Education Abroad Network: Gold Coast - Bond University
I had a friend who went through the exact same program a year prior, so I thought had an idea as to what to expect. However, the truth is, traveling abroad is something only YOU can experience and understand. No matter what other people say. The friends I made and the memories I will have forever on my trip to Australia are unex... - Drake University View Entire Review
Not having traveled much prior to studying abroad, the experience gave me the chance to meet such amazing people and see how many opportunities there are in the world outside of my home area. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
I had a great time abroad. It made me realize that the world was a lot bigger than what I could have ever imagined. I would do it all over again if I had the chance! - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
I have lived in the Midwest my entire life and haven't really left. Seeing other parts of the world and getting to meet people from all over the world changed my life. I am so different and cultured now. Even just becoming best friends with American students from all over the US changed me. Not to mention all the friends I made ... - University of Iowa View Entire Review

I developed a love of travel and an unending desire to learn and grow. I wish to return to Australia in the near future. - University of Pittsburgh - Bradford View Entire Review
