Overall Experience
I learned more about global events and seeing the US through a new light. It also gave me more motivation to learn a new language and some techniques to be a better speaker. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
As someone who had a very limited knowledge of Cyprus before attending this program, I would say that this program is a hidden gem. Not only did I gain an amazing story to tell, I got to live in a country I most likely would have never visited. I also came home with a cat! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My experience was worthwhile. I was able to meet students from all over the world at an international school, travel to other countries, and build my portfolio in my classes. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Had a lot of opportunities to engage with fellow students and academics. Learned how to budget, navigate international transit, and became more mature. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to budget on my own, travel safely, and live in an entirely new place. I’ve always lived in the same area, and it was awesome to live elsewhere. I also learned a lot of Cypriot history, which was fascinating. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to figure things out when you're in an unfamiliar country. Specifically different transportation systems. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
How to live on my own and it was worthwhile. - Farmingdale State College (SUNY) View Entire Review
I learned that I am extremely grateful for things that are really small. I think the weekend trips and the experience was extremely worthwhile but I feel as though I wasted a lot of time in classes that I didn't need to be taking. - Susquehanna University View Entire Review
Past Review Great Program
I learned about a new culture and its history. I learned new systems of government and of healthcare. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
Past Review It Gets Old
Choose wisely before you select where you want to study abroad. Read lots of reviews. Do your own research. In my experience, I learned how to room with more than one other person. I also got more confident with taking public transportation. - Hendrix College View Entire Review
I learned new cultures and languages and experienced what it was like in other parts of the world. It was extremely worth while! I would do it again in a heartbeat. - Clemson University View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
I learn a lot about the culture and more about myself. It was worthwhile. - Bennett College View Entire Review
Cyprus is not a place a want to head back to, but Europe is better than I Expected - Illinois State University View Entire Review
Yes, it was worthwhile! I learned that life while in college can be relaxing and fun while still learning a lot–it is not normal to have never have a free weekend ever - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I got to experience life on a tiny island and go to so many regions of the world I never thought I’d go. It was amazing. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with University of Nicosia - Global Semesters: Nicosia - Semester in Cyprus
I learned so much about other people, about myself, and about life. My experience was very much worthwhile. - University of Kentucky View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Nicosia - Global Semesters: Nicosia - Semester in Cyprus
I feel as though I have grown as a person. I know I can be away from home for a long time and be okay. I have learned that I can’t live with four people at the same time, because of how we lived as individuals. But everything i have learned was worthwhile and I would recommend to anyone who wants to study abroad - University of Maine - Farmington View Entire Review
