Overall Experience
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
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

Past Review Life Changing
I learned how to travel on a budget while gaining a better sense of the person I want to be. Nothing is more eye opening than meeting a vast amount of people from different cultures and making their culture a part of yours. - DePaul University View Entire Review
This program helped me to grow up a lot and be a lot more independent which I think a lot of American students don't always get from going to college like our parents did when they were our age. I also learned a lot about other cultures and learned to appreciate them from a different perspective. I couldn't have learned the thin... - Drake University View Entire Review
My experience with TEAN were unbelievable. Right out of the starting gate they fully immerse you within the culture so that you are not taken back when you are left on your own. I met a lot of other students on different programs that seemed to be getting suffocated by their programs. TEAN allowed me to actually experience New Z... - College of Charleston View Entire Review
I am now more open minded to eventually living in another country whereas previously I may have ruled it out as not feasible or worth the effort. I see now I couldn't have been more wrong! - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
Studying abroad taught me more about myself than I thought possible. Living in New Zealand for 4 months was the most worthwhile thing I've ever done. I learned so much about myself as well as other cultures. I know that I will go back to New Zealand in the future. Studying abroad encouraged me to take risks and challenge myself.... - Drake University View Entire Review
YES.. my study abroad experience was so worthwhile and is something that I will never forget and will remain a huge part of my life/me. This experience has made more open to people, and countries and it allowed me to experience life in a different culture. Because of this, I feel stronger, more personable, open, adventurous, w... - Keene State College View Entire Review
My study abroad in New Zealand was the most rewarding experience of my life. I would go back in a heartbeat, and I believe that everyone should make the long trek to New Zealand at least once in their life. - Pennsylvania State University - University Park View Entire Review
Yes, more than anything, my study abroad experience was worthwhile. I can't imagine not having done it now. I learned so much about myself living in New Zealand. If you have any slight leaning to study abroad, do it. You will never regret doing it, but you will likely regret not taking advantage of such an opportunity when it is... - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
I gained so much knowledge about traveling and cultural experiences in New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga. While I was gone I enjoyed studying and learning knew things each and every day about a new culture, country, and society. Five stars because the program and the country of New Zealand was by far the best experience of my life an... - Drake University View Entire Review
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
I was able to learn a lot about myself and my abilities. I learned that I am much more capable of independence than I ever would have thought. Studying abroad gives you a chance to really be part of a community. I was able to learn about a new culture in an incredibly beautiful country, and I wouldn't change my experience for th... - Drake University View Entire Review
Gained a more rounded world perspective and less fear of talking to strangers - University of North Carolina - Charlotte View Entire Review
After my study abroad experience I became a lot more independent. I was able to buy and cook for myself, find and book my own travel arrangements and carry through with them. I made some memorable friends and will keep in contact with them. I now know a culture other than the American ones and would love to continue my travels w... - Plymouth State University View Entire Review

- University of Maryland - College Park View Entire Review
I have definitely become more adventurous and interested in planning trips and seeing the world. The experience has also made me a thrifty person. Without an income, you have to work with the money you have and embrace dollar stores. I think I'm dreading going back to my home university more than I ever did when I was about t... - Lasell College View Entire Review

My study abroad experience could not have been any better. I really learned how to be independent. I did things that I would never have the opportunity to do unless I came abroad. I feel that I matured a lot also. It's definitely worth it. I would recommend it to everyone. - University of California - San Diego View Entire Review
Yes! Everyone should go to New Zealand some point in their life. Why not study abroad there and kill two birds with one stone? The scenery is fantastic, the people are wonderful, and there is always something to do. You really get a chance to grow up and experience life on your own, in a safe and beautiful setting. I'll def... - University of Kentucky View Entire Review
Saying that my abroad experience was worthwhile would be a COMPLETE understatement. I gained an invaluable amount of knowledge from this time abroad; I have learned so much about myself and others and the world. I have seen the most beautiful images and scenery that will forever be ingrained in my mind. The beauty of New Zealand... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
My experience was more than just worthwhile, it is part of what defines who I am today. The lessons I learned from being on my own 18000 miles away from home for 6 months are invaluable. I matured tenfold as a person and learned how to interact with people from all over the world, whether it be Malaysia, Europe, Africa, Australi... - Purdue University View Entire Review
