I learned to be more adventurous and to take advantage of everything offered to me. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Australia was amazing and I had the best time! The program wasn't the best and the school academics were not what I expected, but I also didn't expect too much for being abroad. Australia was the best place and has so much to offer! I would suggest Sydney Uni if you want more challenging academics. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

absolutely worthwhile. got to travel a lot, learned a bit about how I live in a big city. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the local culture and Australia in general. Also gained the confidence to travel alone and to work through uncomfortable/unfamiliar situations. Very worth it, both the incredible experiences and the more difficult ones. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
On top of the usual "experiencing a new culture" line, I met some of the nicest and most interesting people I have ever come across. I lived in a dorm unlike anything we have in this country, where 150 people felt like a single family. It was a seamless transition into that family unit and I felt at home from Day One. I couldn't... - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I learned the value of money and how life changing travel can become. My experience taught me how independence is essential. I learned how to travel and live on a ... - Ithaca College View Entire Review

It's always challenging trying to remember exactly what I was like before studying abroad. I was still the same me, with the same beliefs and general goals. However, I came home from Australia with a confidence and excitement that can only truly be gained through experience, and getting out of your comfort zone! I also developed... - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review
