December 13, 2016 The Trip Of A Lifetime
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
June 14, 2016 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

I learned how to be more independent and rely on myself instead of others. Yes! - Clemson University View Entire Review
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

"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
April 14, 2016 Loved It
The perfect combination of a whirlwind of cultures, countries, landmarks and adventures based out of the under-rated exotic landscape of the island of Cyprus. Get to spend much less time worrying about academics and more time focusing on the unique worlds around you. - Marymount Manhattan College View Entire Review
Great program! The program coordinators were very helpful throughout the semester and made my semester very memorable. I couldn't of chosen a better destination to study abroad, I fell in love with the Cypriot culture. - Winthrop University View Entire Review
"Overall, awesome semester. School was not difficult at all. I love academics and school. I missed studying because school was so insignificant this semester. It freed me up to travel independently though." - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
I gained global perspective and a new sense of confidence in myself. - Pace University View Entire Review
Being submerged into a completely different culture that I never heard of before this program was life changing. I gained new lifelong friends, abroad and local, and it gave me a chance to look at my life in New York in a different perspective. - Pace University View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent and I became more culturally aware of the world. It allowed me to shape who I want to become in such a positive way. - Illinois State University View Entire Review
independence and experience, yes - University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth View Entire Review
April 14, 2016 Awesome Experience

April 14, 2016 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
April 14, 2016 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
April 14, 2016 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

April 13, 2016 Amazing Experience
"Choosing to study abroad in Cyprus through Global Semesters was the best decision I could've made. Although the academics are not nearly as challenging as schools in America, I was able to learn by being in a new culture with different types of people. Being able to travel while abroad was by far the best part of the program... - Washington State University View Entire Review
11 countries in one semester was an amazing experience. I'd never been to Europe before so it was a great introduction. Cyprus is a beautiful place to stay. The classes are extremely easy and relatively straightforward. - University of Georgia View Entire Review
