I'm much more comfortable with listening to and processing Spanish information. I have a wider perception of the world and also have seen what it is like to live in a small city. This was new to me coming from rural Connecticut - University of Connecticut View Entire Review

I had a great time in Granada because I made it that way - I went out, learned Spanish, and fell in love with the city and the people. But the program itself is sorely lacking in support, organization, and resources - UConn needs to change things. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review

I learned how to live on my own and adapt to a new culture. It was really hard and I had times when I just wanted to go home, but it was an experience that I won't forget. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with UConn: Granada - UConn in Granada, Spain
I learned a lot of independence and how to rely on myself instead of other people and also how different other countries are and how much culture and diversity there is. It was absolutely worthwhile and I would do it all over again if I could. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
My language improved significantly and I felt really immersed in the culture. Definitely worthwhile. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I learned many real life skills that I was never exposed to since my time at UConn. I now feel that my problem solving and communication skills grew incredibly. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
I learned more Spanish than I ever thought was possible. This really encouraged me to major in Spanish. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
Yes, my experience abroad was definitely worthwhile. I learned a lot, not only about the Spanish language, but about myself. I became more independent and spontaneous, as I didn´t go into each day with a solid plan. I put myself out there more and was able to make a lot of new friends as result. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
I'm thrilled with how much Spanish I was able to understand and speak afterwards. I gained some incredible friends and a lot of confidence in uncomfortable situations. I learned the importance of staying positive, especially when things weren't going great. It was absolutely worthwhile. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
I learnt to not rely on my director for anything and to be self reliant and that I can travel anywhere in the world and do things independently if I have to, solving every problem that comes my way. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
You learn a lot about your limits, what you are capable of doing on your own. You're forced out of your comfort zone and tested to adapt. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
Some incredible friendships, an understanding of the world outside of Connecticut, confidence in my language skills as well as performance, comfort in being independent - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
I learned to be patient when acclimating to a new environment and culture and how to be more tolerant of others. My language skills improved immensely and I learned how to travel on a budget while being able to get in as much as possible. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
I learned that I am more resilient than I thought. I learned to stand up for myself. I also learned that I am pretty good at Spanish. It was definitely worthwhile, but if I could choose a different program I would pick one that has direct enrollment in the school so that I could be more integrated with the locals. - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
Yes, worthwhile. Improved my spanish, learned a lot of history and culture - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
