I learned that I am capable of being independent and traveling/getting to other places on my own. - University of Kentucky View Entire Review
I learned a lot about different types of people and what makes everyone so unique in their own culture. I also gained a lot of experience communicating with and listening to people of different countries and cultures. Traveling and being immersed in culture is the best way to learn a lot about the world we live in! - Susquehanna University View Entire Review

"overall, my experience in Cyprus was amazing. I met life-long friends from all over the states that I hope to continue to keep in touch with. Cyprus was a beautiful island.

I chose the Semester in Europe program with Global Semesters mainly because of how many countries it would allow me to visit. I was very satisfied with the program and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good portion of Europe. There was a walking tour in the itinerary for almost every place we visited,... - West Chester University of Pennsylvania View Entire Review

Past Review Spring 2015
Absolutely love the employees of global semesters!!! However, I did feel that Cyprus is not the ideal study abroad location. It's hard to explore the rest of the island and stay busy due to the limits of transportation. I would recommend a global semesters but not studying in Cyprus. Overall, I don't regret studying in Nicosi... - Bethel University View Entire Review
Past Review Cyprus
I throughly enjoyed my time in Cyprus with GLS. The classes weren't too strenuous, as the professors know that most of our learning was taking place outside of the classroom. The coordinators were awesome! Sakis and Laura really made the trip a great experience! - Clemson University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with University of Nicosia - Global Semesters: Nicosia - Semester in Europe (Multi-country)
I learned how to live on my own and how to handle my spending and finances. I also learned a lot about public transportation and traveling. This experience is definitely worthwhile because most people don't get to see the world until after they retire. - Albright College View Entire Review
An entire now outlook on life and my role on Earth. A newfound appreciation for other cultures. A deeper understanding of myself and my thoughts. A desire to continually see and experience new places and things. The heightened moral obligation to empathize and stand up for those less fortunate than myself. Yes, very worth it. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
Past Review Don't Hold Back.
I learned to believe in myself again. After going through a rough semester before I came, I was coming to Cyprus needing to be rejuvenate and to build myself up again. Coming abroad pushed away all the other distractions from home and I could really focus on myself. - Bethel University View Entire Review

Past Review Cyprus
"Overall the semester was great. The univ. is in the worst city in Cyprus and the district is boring, would be better almost any other city in Cyprus. Spring break was the best part although it was rushed." - University of Nicosia View Entire Review
"I had the most amazing time on this program. I had the chance to grow tremendously personally while fulfilling a goal of mine to travel around Europe. I would highly recommend this program and overall the experience of studying abroad!" - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
"After traveling and seeing the world with global semesters and on my own! I learned a lot about many different cultures. I have friends all over Europe and Africa now and I have memories that I will remember for the rest of my life." - Albright College View Entire Review
I had a great time learning about Cyriot culture, yet having the opportunity to explore around a large portion of Europe. The travel portion of the program made it entirely worth it! Can't wait to refer others to the program! - Bethel University View Entire Review
