Overall Experience
Because the professors of the Chinese classes only taught in Chinese, I was forced to learn more words and gain confidence in using Chinese more often. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Learnt about the Chinese perspective on many domestic and international issues, which could be hard to achieve in the U.S. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Every day is a little struggle, the pollution, the cultural differences, anything and everything working just a little differently that you are used to. You learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable and out of your comfort zone, this is a lifelong skill. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I achieved quite a bit of personal growth from my experience abroad, as well as interacting with other internationals was a very eye opening experience. Definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile in cultural understanding, but not as worthwhile as a semester at home in terms of developing degree-oriented knowledge. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Commitment to society, teams, and associations means selfless practices in moments of action, in order to honor the legacy of traditions and progress the current state. - Temple University View Entire Review
learned about myself, whether I'm adaptable, easily influenced, independent etc, and the importance of having an open mind and acceptance people and cultures vastly different from my own - Cornell University View Entire Review
I learned about the differences of cultures around the world and how and why each countries' view the things they view the way they do. The experience was very worthwhile because I was able to open my eyes to lots of different things and see things in a new and different angle. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I learned to be more understanding of others, open minded, and just continued to expand my borders. It was definitely worthwhile. I know this exchange and internship experience will help my network, language skills, and future job prospects. Pieces of my reviews may have been a bit harsh, but that is just due to my high level... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Absolutely - it was an amazing opportunity to see what China is like for myself beyond the western stereotypes and the mystique. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Politics, traditions, and culture affect the way a society runs, it was a learning experience to see the differences and similarities - Barnard College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Tsinghua University: Beijing - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
Despite the administrative issues that were encountered during my stay, I was able to understand the Chinese education system by being part of it. This allowed me to better understand what it's like to be a student in China which is quite different than being a student at an International school. I also got to spend time getting... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I am not really sure. I paid the same amount of money as I do when I am at Barnard, but I really didn't feel like I got the education or the resources Barnard provides. - Barnard College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile as I think living in a completely different environment for 6 months is quiet difficult if you are not a student. Learned that there are so many other experiences and areas that I did not not know about. I think experiencing different culture is very important because it really open oneself's spectru... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I gained an awareness of the perspectives of some of the Chinese people, and learned about myself in relation to the world and my surrounding, as well as changed my direction in life for the better. I appreciate the people and the language so much more now, which is why I will be going back. I gained really incredible life exper... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Worth It
Yes, First of all, I learn a great deal of new stuff academically. I took many course that I could not take in my home college. Secondly, the culture experience was adventurous, the food, people, professor all very different from the US. I would say it was definitely worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was pretty isolated, but I really learned who I was outside of other people. It was pretty hard, but it was absolutely worth it. I'm really glad I went. - Drake University View Entire Review
Past Review Eye Opening
What I gained most from my experience abroad was the ability to live on my own in a completely new environment. - Seton Hall University View Entire Review
Completely worthwhile, gained a great understanding of Chinese and learned a whole new culture and way of life - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned how to be accepting to people and how to basically be a world traveler, not to mention learning an entirely new language. - Purdue University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. It was one of those tough-love experiences that bestows some wisdom while still having a blast. This is no "semester in Barcelona" program but it doesn't mean you have to be purely academic either. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I'd say it was worthwhile. I got to learn about a different culture and make new friends. My experience here has opened my eyes to the vast amount of work opportunities in this part of the globe. I'm looking forward to interning or working here in the future. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. Living in China is a completely different experience from traveling in China. Experiencing the flow of daily life over the course of a summer was an experience in living abroad that I found very useful and enlightening. - Harvard University View Entire Review
Absolutely. Before the program, I knew almost nothing about Chinese culture and customs. Now, I'm considering moving to China after I graduate. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I loved being in a new environment and felt that even though I had problems with the classroom environment at Tsinghua and with the sense of isolation I felt at times from locals because of the living arrangements, I still got to know a lot of locals and got to explore the university and Beijing. I got to see how the Chinese uni... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
