Overall Experience
I really enjoyed living in a different country and learning about the cultural differences. It was definitely worthwhile! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My experience was incredibly worthwhile. I learned how to make decisions for myself and how to navigate not only through new cities, but through uncertainty. I learned how to communicate with, understand, and appreciate the views and ideals of other cultures. Most importantly, I gained a new perspective on my own experiences and... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile! I learned how to truly live on my own unsupported! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned a new language and figured out my thesis - Brandeis University View Entire Review
October 07, 2014 Amazing
I learned so much in just 4 months. The experience outside of classes was the best experience for me. I learned more outside of classes than in class. Being around a different culture and meeting people from many different cultures is the best experience a person could have (in my opinion). - Utica College View Entire Review
Dublin was an amazing experience and it made me a more comfortable traveller and city resident. - St. Mary's College of Maryland View Entire Review
This was a very worthwhile experience. Though the campus was not in the ideal location, it was nice observing a different culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
How to not panic when getting lost in the city - St. Mary's College of Maryland View Entire Review
I had an amazing time in Ireland. I learned so much about responsibility, independence, and myself. My time abroad also gave me a new appreciation for my family, Wellesley, and the opportunities that I have had in life. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Great Experience
You learn how to experience the world from a new point of view. It's a reminder to be open minded and flexible, because you're constantly facing new ideas and new challenges. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. - St. Mary's College of Maryland View Entire Review
Past Review C Don!
I learned about wonderful ways to think, learn, and live my life. - Bentley University View Entire Review
How to shop/cook for myself. So much in general about different types of people. Traveling to several different countries allowed me to take a look at other cultures, which in my eyes is one of the most worthwhile things you can do. - Bentley University View Entire Review
Past Review 1 Chatham Row.
Learned how to truly live on my own. Learned how to travel efficiently and effectively. Learned how to integrate myself with people who I (for the most part) cannot relate to at all. - Bentley University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University College Dublin: Dublin - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
Because I had much free time outside of the architecture school, I got to work out, go to activities/events I was interested in, get to know people, and explore Ireland a lot. The course load was not too heavy, so my time at UCD feels more like a gap semester than college. I really appreciate the chance to escape the "big bubble... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
So much educational value that I couldn't gain at my home university as well as experiencing a city (not to mention a whole lot of Europe) instead of rural VT. Definitely worthwhile - Middlebury College View Entire Review
When I studied abroad it was the first time I felt like an adult. I loved the independence of having to figure everything out myself. I went completely alone, not knowing anyone from home who was going. I completely went outside my comfort zone and had to make a new group of friends, adjust to a completely new type of semester s... - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
I learned a lot about different cultures and I was able to visit 10 countries in the 4 months I was there. I would not trade this experience for anything. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: Dublin - University College Dublin
This was definitely a worthwhile experience. I learned so much about other cultures and met so many amazing people. It gave me a deeper insight into how other people live and view the world which expanded my own personal view. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned how to be completely independent in the way that I live. I also got to see much of the country and learn about a different culture. I also learned how to budget my time with six classes. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
February 05, 2014 Travel Without Home
I learned how to travel and life as an independent adult. It was a maturing process. I learned about other cultures and the histories of the many places I traveled to in Europe. I learned many valuable lessons from living in a foreign country and how it is always important to be your best self. It was worthwhile, despite the inc... - St. Mary's College of Maryland View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: Dublin - University College Dublin
Having lived abroad with my family before, I didn't think I would learn as much as I did. It's a completely different experience living on your own. You learn how to go outside of your comfort zone to meet new people, how to navigate a foreign city, how to independently plan a trip; you end up surprising yourself. You also learn... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned about the different customs and attitudes. I also learned that we as Americans need to be less of a clique and venture off on our own. Yes it was worthwhile in the end. - Bentley University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing!!!!
I gained responsibility, I grew up and matured a lot during my time there. I learned a lot from other cultures. It was incredibly worthwhile and I would go back in a heartbeat. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned who I am when it comes to experiencing new cultures. I've learned how i deal with situations that I have never had to deal with before. Also I learned how to adapt to the Irish culture and am able to bring them back home. - Bentley University View Entire Review
I learned how to navigate a new place by myself and to take advantage of everything around me, especially asking for help when you need it. The experience was definitely worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
