Overall Experience
I gained a lot of independence and confidence by being on my own. Definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
My experience was worthwhile. I definitely gained a lot of independence and confidence in myself, along with the positive of exploring new places I might never have gone to in my life if I hadn't studied abroad. Even with the negatives, I am still very grateful for my time abroad. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

It was undoubtedly worthwhile! For one, I learned how to live on a budget. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
February 24, 2016 Fun!
I learned a lot about English culture, which I think was worthwhile. I also started a new sport, so that was nice. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Bristol Exchange
It's a great way to learn to adapt. The university system is completely different in England and it was an adventure to learn how to deal with different circumstances. I would say any abroad program is worthwhile. You'll be put out of your comfort zone multiple times but at the end of it you'll be able to adapt to many things i... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
That the education systems in the UK and US are a way more different than I first would have expected. That said, they are also very similar in ways since they're both universities: exams still are stressful, people still go out the night before tests, students will do the minimum in class sometimes, there will be that one guy w... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It is worthwhile. Seeing different culture and countries and meet people from different places are very exciting. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Absolutely! I have learned a lot from my flatmates about the cultural differences between America and England. Even though we speak the same language, we have a lot to learn about each other! It's definitely impacted my plans for the future, as I am now seriously considering the UK, Bristol in particular, for post-grad work. - Drake University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was definitely worthwhile. I was able to become more independent and responsible as a result of studying abroad. I was also more outgoing after being placed outside of my comfort zone while studying abroad. My experience has abroad has given me a more global perspective on life and because of my experi... - Fordham University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I had to learn how to navigate living in a completely foreign city and attending a school that I was not at all familiar with beforehand. Doing so taught me a lot myself and how to live independently and what to do when problems arise and there's no one you can turn to for help. In addition, being i... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Networking is a phenomenal resource that all should take advantage of. Traveling also encourages yourself to meet new people and go out of your comfort zone. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile. It was interesting to be in a different culture, even one so similar to the US. The University system is different and it was great to experience a different way of learning - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I found a new love and excitement for my major, as well a city I plan to move back to. Beyond worthwhile - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned that my values are somewhat different from the students in the UK, and that's ok! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Being an international student was a bit tough, it took extra effort to "fit in". Traveling was a great fun and so convenient. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was worthwhile in that I traveled out of England as much as possible, which was relatively easy since it's so close to the continent. I learned that I really don't like living in England. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
It was worthwhile, but I believe I would have gotten more out of an additional semester at Grinnell. - Grinnell College View Entire Review

Our students always say how much they love the city of Bristol - from its friendly people and fantastic music scene to its vibrant harbourside, green spaces and buzzing centre. Best of all, Bristol is the perfect size, offering all the excitement of a big city packed into an area you can easily explore on foot or by bike.
