Overall Experience
It was absolutely worthwhile! Though I was only in Australia for about six weeks, I became far more independent and knowledgeable about another culture. I always knew I wanted to travel, but my study abroad experienced further deepened that goal. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
I learned to take risks and do what you love. I chose marine biology for a career path purely because I am passionate and love the ocean. Going abroad to JCU helped me to make this decision. - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
Past Review Take Me Back!
It was absolutely worthwhile. If I could do the whole thing over, I wouldn't change a thing. I learned a lot about myself and all of the things I was capable of doing. - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
While abroad, I learned that I am much more independent than I had ever known. I gained the knowledge of a new culture and the ability to adapt to new ways of life. Studying abroad was absolutely worthwhile and I would do it all over a million times! - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
I would absolutely do it again. I gained friends from around the world, a sense of independence, and a love for a country I may not have visited otherwise, and certainly not in the same way. - Clemson University View Entire Review
I really gained alot of personal achievements abroad. Being totally submerged into a foreign country really tested my independence on so many levels. I can now relate to another country and another culture. I find that so interesting! I really miss it already! The academics have helped me keep an open mind to learning in my curr... - University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
You grow so much as a person when you live and submerge yourself into another country. Would not change a single thing about my adventure - University of Tampa View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of doing, which is much more than I thought. I gained confidence and a new perspective. Traveling to the other side of the world made "my world" seem pretty small. Deciding to study abroad was hands-down the best decision that I have ever made. - Colby-Sawyer College View Entire Review
Studying abroad has made me a much more independent and open-minded person. You learn a lot about yourself and what you're capable of when you travel halfway across the world without anyone you're familiar with. From this experience, I gained lifelong friends and unforgettable memories that I will keep with me wherever I go in t... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independant and how to rely on myself to solve problems. I made friends with people from another country, and I threw myself into the Australian culture. I loved every second of my time in Australia and my only regret was that I couldn't travel a little bit more while I was there. I made friends who are ... - Stonehill College View Entire Review
There is so much that i gained and learnt from being abroad. I really learned who i was and what i strongly liked or disliked in life. I learned how to be strong and gained independence. I had never left home before leaving to go abroad so it gave me an opportunity to spread my wings and find my true self without the influence o... - University of Pittsburgh - Bradford View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Education Abroad Network: Townsville - James Cook University
It was very much worth it, it gives you an idea of what is going on in other parts of the world. I was able to gain friendships all over the United States, Germany, Sweden, Australia, France, etc. I was pretty culturally aware but you don't trully understand the concepts until you live them. My future plans have been changed som... - University of Cincinnati View Entire Review
