Overall Experience
Travel skills, money management lessons, learned in frivolous with money, how to communicate with basic English (it's different than just speaking it), how to use public transportation, I like traveling alone, it's easy to make friends but hard to make good friends - Truman State University View Entire Review
As I said above, I learned more than what I can put into words. Even though I came back to the States pennyless, I would not change my experience! - Truman State University View Entire Review
September 09, 2015 Amazing!
Very worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained a greater appreciation for knowledge and being independent. The academics in the United Kingdom are definitely more challenging, and a lot of success lies in how much work you do on your own. At my school, I find they always gives us an outline of some sort to explain what will be required of you for a paper or a test. ... - Brookdale Community College View Entire Review

You're out of your comfort zone which forces you to be present and learn an incredible amount. You have quite the headstand on culture, knowledge and travel. Plus, I'm a certified Globe-Trotter now (not the basketball team.) - Montana State University - Bozeman View Entire Review
Traveling was invaluable. The experience abroad was definitely worthwhile, and living in Europe was great. I developed a great understanding of the world. I also made a lot of friends from the ERASMUS program, through the European exchange program. I was able to travel to 13 different countries in Europe and explore many differe... - University of Indianapolis View Entire Review
Definitely, it was great making friends with people with completely different outlooks on life (the Northerner's aren't crazy about their royalty). And after packing my bags every other week and going places I've never been before I know that I have to continue traveling. It's going to be a part of the rest of my life. - CUNY - College of Staten Island View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Truman State University: Ormskirk - Study Abroad at Edge Hill University
I learned about many different cultures because I was able to meet other international students from all over the world. I gained independence and confidence in learning how to live in a place much culturally different from where I grew up. I gained friendships with other students in many different countries that will last a lif... - Presbyterian College View Entire Review

I think I got a broader understanding of Western Culture. It was worthwhile because of the people I met, I think. And also cheap travel - Truman State University View Entire Review
I learned how to adjust to a setting that vastly differed from what I was familiar with - Truman State University View Entire Review

It was definitely worthwhile! Coming back to the US, one of the big differences I've noticed in myself is a greater willingness to step outside my comfort zone, try new things, and be adventurous. I also have a completely different view of the world. It is so big, and there are so many people and places. The US may be a big coun... - Truman State University View Entire Review
I made lifetime friends, I have learned a lot about my self and other cultures. Academically it was challenging and it has opened my mind on what I want to do in my future plans. I have learned a lot more about the TV/Film industry that will help me get a job. My interest in the field that I study has broaden which makes me more... - Clark Atlanta University View Entire Review
