November 01, 2019 Study In Windy Welly!
My study abroad experience was so worth while. I learned so much about myself as an individual and made so many genuine connections. I gained so many unforgettable memories and lifelong friends. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
This experience really gave me a chance to see how people live in other parts of the world. I made friends with locals, hiked mountains, and got out of my comfort zone. I will always remember this experience and the people I met as one of the best times of my life. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review

November 05, 2018 Absolutely Incredible!
I gained insight into Maori culture, a love of the outdoors, and valuable academic learning experiences. The program was absolutely worthwhile and I will be looking into any and all post-college opportunities they offer. - Stetson University View Entire Review
I learned how to be self sufficient and to travel alone. Sure I made friends but I also was able to travel and explore on my own. I also realized my passion for experiencing new cultures and appreciating them for what they are. I love New Zealand so much and it was 100% worthwhile. - Emmanuel College (Massachusetts) View Entire Review

I learned a ton of NZ culture, met amazing people, and got an incredible education. It was extremely worthwhile, already want to go back! - College of Charleston View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Wellington - Victoria University of Wellington
Really, the question should be "what didn't I gain?" I truly learned how to live on my own- cooking, cleaning, classes, traveling, budgeting, international housemates. I learned how to budget my time most effectively and I feel more prepared for the "real" world after I graduate. I know how to build relationships with people fro... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
My abroad experience will absolutely have a lasting impact on my life. Everything was just perfect, from the staff at The Education Abroad Network (TEAN) to the beautiful, picturesque scenery that surrounded me everyday. Without TEAN this trip may not have been possible. The program helped me every step of the way and made the w... - Stonehill College View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent, and that it's okay to do things alone. - Drake University View Entire Review
Ever since I've been back, I've been describing my abroad experience as "an unforgettable adventure." Although it may sound cliché, my trip truly was unforgettable for countless reasons. Since UNH is only three hours away from my hometown, I never truly felt like I was stepping out of my comfort zone. Every state and most towns ... - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review

It was absolutely worthwhile! I learned how to step out of my comfort zone and take advantage of all opportunities that came my way. I now know I am capable of providing for myself and living a happy and healthy life on my own. I learned to adapt and accept new ways of life and am now interested in learning more. I gained a whol... - Stonehill College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Wellington - Victoria University of Wellington
I gained insight into how other parts of the world live and learned about their values, customs, and norms. It was leap outside of my comfort zone and allowed me open my eyes even more to opportunities, sites, and experiences I never thought I would have. I learned from TEAN to think: "It's not wrong, it's just different." Th... - Augsburg College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Wellington - Victoria University of Wellington
So much of what I learned while studying abroad in Wellington cannot be taught in a classroom, nor could you fully grasp the enormity of it's importance to my life simply by me telling you. The only way to have become who I am today, a better version of who I was five months ago, was to live and enjoy every moment of my time in ... - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Wellington - Victoria University of Wellington
I gained further knowledge about myself that I would've never found had I never gone abroad to New Zealand. I found out more about my identity, what makes me happy, and what kind of life I hope to have. I also learned the value of global knowledge and understanding, and my world-views shifted in response to my experience abroad ... - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
August 26, 2019 Welly, Thank You.
I definitely have grown a lot. I've learned to go about studying differently, especially when with other individuals. I have gradually learned to be more ok with being myself and being alone with myself. It all takes time. I am grateful for the people I met, regardless of if I am in contact or not. Everyone holds an impact, you ... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for the various lifestyles and life experiences around the world. Specifically, being in New Zealand gave me a deeper appreciation for nature. - University of New Hampshire View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN): Wellington - Victoria University of Wellington
I cannot even begin to describe my study abroad experience. I gained so many great friends from around the world that I still keep in touch with and plan to visit sometime in the future. Through living with many other international students, I was able to learn about how other people live around the world which I found fascinati... - California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo View Entire Review
September 06, 2016 What An Adventure!
Through my study abroad experience with TEAN, I learned that the world is a much larger place than I imagined. I learned about entirely new cultures that I had never learned about in America and I actually learned a lot about the States as well. I got to do so many exciting and adventurous things that I wouldn't have been able t... - Emmanuel College (Massachusetts) View Entire Review

you learn how to travel, how to meet and talk to new people, and how to come out of your shell. - Carnegie Mellon University View Entire Review
This experience was 100% worthwhile and I would do it again in a heart beat! I learn a lot about myself and made lifelong friendships with some of the most unique people. - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself and what I was capable of. I did things I never thought I could. I learned about independence and how to acclimate to new situations. I learned about respect of cultures and just because it's different, doesn't mean it's wrong. It was the most worthwhile experience of my life. - Victoria University of Wellington View Entire Review

I gained lifelong friends and more knowledge in my major from a New Zealand perspective. Once you step outside of your comfort zone, you can have the time of your life. - Birmingham-Southern College View Entire Review
I learned that I was far more capable than I ever thought. I took a big risk leaving home and traveling on my own for five months, and it helped me become much more of an independent adult. I met amazing people and had incredible experiences. I would do it again in a heartbeat! - Drake University View Entire Review
I learned SO much from this experience. I was never very interested in outdoorsy activities or knew much about NZ before I went so I was really stepping outside my comfort zone. TEAN is first class all the way and really made my transition to the Kiwi lifestyle a lot easier. It was definitely worthwhile! - Clemson University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Education Abroad Network: Wellington - Victoria University of Wellington
This was the most worthwhile experience of my life. I put myself in so many new and different situations that expanded my life and helped me grow so much. I left the US with anxieties and a lot of nervousness, but got to Wellington and lost all of those feelings. I found extreme happiness and a much more confident sense of se... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
