A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Gold Coast - Griffith University
If I could sum all of Australia up in one word, it would be unforgettable. Everything we did there, from scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef with TEAN, to going on adventures in the rainforest, to sunset dinner cruises and everything in between, it was all unforgettable. The friends I met and the lessons I learned are ones I won... - University of Kentucky View Entire Review

I gained the experience of living in a new country and culture, I learned to cook and be more independent, I became more appreciative of the people back home and realized how blessed I am to have had such I wonderful opportunity.

Not only did I build lifelong friendships abroad, but I also learned how cultures can vary around the world and how to adapt to different environments. This was the most amazing experience I have ever encountered. The people and places that I saw were truly amazing. - Griffith University View Entire Review

December 12, 2015 Amazing
Studying abroad helped me grow more independent and helped me become more culturally aware of the world around me. Being able to watch american news while in Australia and to hear Australians comments on major issues gave me a unique perspective on how other parts of the world view some of the major issues america faces. I also ... - University of Hartford View Entire Review

I originally made the decision to study abroad for personal growth reasons, but I ended up learning more than I ever thought I would. I had never traveled outside of the country before, and the prospect of it terrified me. Pushing myself outside of my comfort zone helped me to grow as an individual. I am by no means the same p... - Bryant University View Entire Review

What I gained from this experience was learning more about myself than I have ever before. I think that starting new in a brand new place with brand new people is something everyone can do because they can leave behind their past and begin anew and that is so refreshing. I definitely intend to work abroad after this experience... - Stonehill College View Entire Review

Choosing The Education Abroad Network's program at Griffith University in Gold Coast, Australia changed my life so much. From the first day of the program when I met staff members at the airport to the farewell dinner, I felt like I had found my second home.

October 18, 2014 Best Days Of My Life
What did I gain from studying abroad? Everything. A global and humbling perspective, lifelong memories and friendships, the courage and confidence to truly do anything I set my mind to (cheesy, but it's the truth), and a really, really strong case of wanderlust :) So, of course it was worthwhile. I would go back this very day I ... - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
My experience abroad was the absolute best. I got to live in a new place, meet new people from different cultures, and see places I never thought I would get to see. It opens up your eyes living somewhere else. You see the differences and similarities between cultures, and it allows you to bring new ideas you learned abroad back... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself. I gained some awesome friends that I would of never been able to meet if I did not go through TEAN. While in Australia I learned so many cool things that I probably wouldn't of done while in the US like scuba diving and surfing. - Nichols College View Entire Review

My experience abroad was AMAZING, I grew so much as a person . The friends I made while abroad I will remember and keep with me forever. I learned how to travel on a budget and simply take care of myself. What this world has to offer is endless and TEAN helped me to realize I can accomplish so much in this grand adventure we cal... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review

You learn so much more than academics while you are abroad. You learn about cultures, food, people, yourself, and the world in a way that just can't be described. Nothing will ever compare to these four and a half months that I spent overseas and it was the most worthwhile experience I have ever been a part of. - Bryant University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about other cultures and other countries, however living abroad taught me a lot about myself which I found most important. - Bryant University View Entire Review

Anything and everything. This was the best decision I have ever made in my life. The most life altering experience I have ever had. I learned so much about independence and travel. I decided to go abroad not knowing a single soul and it made the experience even more exciting. I made lifelong friends, saw a different perspective ... - University of Tampa View Entire Review

I learned so much about myself as well as the new culture I was immersed in. A semester abroad pushes you outside your comfort zone and forces you to try new things you will not regret. The experiences and memories create friendships that could last a lifetime. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review

I came back with a massively bigger understand not only of Australian culture, but of my own culture and travel in general. I got to see the comparisons of my own upbringing and other's, while gaining a larger respect for others in the process. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
I learned so much about so many different kinds of people from all over the world. I also learned to put myself out there and do things, even if they scare me. This was the most worthwhile experience of my life. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
My experience was definitely worthwhile, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. It takes you out of your comfort zone and allows you to open yourself up to new experiences. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity that allows you to assimilate yourself into a new culture while you are young and impressionable. It's hard t... - Clemson University View Entire Review
I learned to put myself out of my comfort zone whenever possible. I learned to do something each day that makes me a little uncomfortable. This is how you meet some of the most amazing people, do some of the most amazing activities, have the most amazing experiences, and learn some new amazing things about yourself. I loved be... - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review

My experience was definitely worthwhile. Stepping out of your comfort zone and being somewhere alone will definitely teach you a lot about yourself, your life and your culture. - Marietta College View Entire Review
I learned more about myself and stepping out of the comfort zone to try new things. I also was made aware of how the rest of the country views America and I learned about what was going on in other countries. It was well worthwhile. - Stonehill College View Entire Review
