Overall Experience
I learned to be more independent. I appreciate this experience because it helped me find my true academic passion which is film and media. I changed my major while I was abroad and have enjoyed my classes since that switch. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I loved meeting all of my international friends, being able to explore a mid-sized city and a new way of life, and have access to cities that I have only dreamed about. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I learned a lot about my resiliency, which made it very worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It WAS worthwhile because I got to travel and I LOVE traveling and getting to explore new cultures and have those experiences. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
February 02, 2016 Review Of Nottingham U.
A new appreciation for America and American relations abroad. Also a new love for foreign culture. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I think that being abroad reminded me that I live in a very intense bubble that thrives from students overcommitting and thinly stretching themselves to accommodate others. Abroad life helped me to take a step back to see all the different works at play and evaluate what things that I do within my everyday life at my home univer... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Definitely learned a lot, learned more about what I like and want, and grew from being in an independent program/ dealing with crazy situations. The month long break was an awesome time for travel but that combined with the pound in the UK was expensive! Would probably go somewhere else if I could choose again but loved the camp... - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: Nottingham - University of Nottingham
Being in Nottingham taught me to search for self-motivation, persistence, getting things done with little or no help from the university. Most importantly, I have established a social life outside of the university. I met fantastic people though my job and now I think I'm somewhat ready to leave Middlebury, knowing that I can ma... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was so worthwhile! I made friends that feel like family to me. It was nice living in dorms because I was really integrated into the culture, living with majority British students - Middlebury College View Entire Review
definitely worthwhile realized life outside middlebury and how real life is because at midd you can forget you are in a bubble. i needed a university like notts because credits transferred back for my major but if i didnt need that i would pick something that allows more independant study and more exotic places though at least i... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned an amazing amount about myself and what I want from life as well as just how much I can actually accomplish all on my own because I really was all alone at the start of the year. I also gained an appreciation for just how widely diverse our world is even in a country like England where they speak the same language. I ... - Sarah Lawrence College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile - Middlebury College View Entire Review

October 05, 2018 A Mixed Bag
I gained an appreciation for the UK in a way that I never thought I would gain. I definitely intend to move to the UK in the future now and it's solely because of the bonds and memories I made while there - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned how to live and experience the world on my own. It was very hands-off so I gained exposure on self-managing my workload. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned that I love Medieval literature (and that I hate Quorn). It also gave me the space to figure out a few things about my life and my future that I don't think I would have (or at least not in the same time frame) if I hadn't gone - Middlebury College View Entire Review
February 03, 2016 England
While there I learned a lot about British culture and perspectives on various topics such as their view on U.S. politics or gun control. At the same time, I gained a greater appreciation for America and the comforts of home. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself as a person and as a student but I do believe that I didn't take much away academically. This makes me nervous for my senior year at Middlebury as the academic environment is much more demanding and rigorous. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
While here, I learned a great deal about different education systems and the various differences between UK and US culture. I met so many people and made great friends in the process. It was certainly an experience I am glad I did. - The College of New Jersey View Entire Review
How to be more independant and self disciplined - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned to enjoy solitude. Most of the people I met in my dorm were not really concerned about anything that I was concerned about. People at the school were not very engaged in their program of study so I spent most of my time by myself. I suppose that is important. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Enlightening
Experienced a new culture and gained a new sense of independence. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile and it's always great learning about different cultures! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile, and I got a lot out of it. While I've studied at different places/countries, going to the UK was very different from anywhere I had gone so far. I learnt a lot about British culture and loved experiencing it; I loved travelling around the UK and made some great friends at Nottingham. Not taking acco... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained the experience of a lifetime by traveling across Europe and meeting so many amazing people from all over the world. More than anything my experience was validating in understanding what my personal strengths and weaknesses are. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
