Overall Experience
Amazing experience! So worthwhile! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
September 11, 2015 The British Are Coming
Going to the UK, I wasn't expecting there to be a huge difference in culture. I was very wrong! Their lifestyle is very different. It was also great to travel to other countries during breaks and weekends. It's just a really cool experience to meet people the first week and travel to another country with them in week 2! I grew c... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned a lot from getting to travel all over Europe. It was a great experience but I would have picked a different university to do this through if I were to go again. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Studying abroad was probably the best decision I made my entire college career. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
February 07, 2014 Expect The Unexpected
I gained independence more than anything abroad. I definitely think it was worthwhile to get that experience. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Definitely a worthwhile experience, it was difficult in the beginning because there was about three days of orientation and then you are completely on your own, but I would definitely do it again. While it does not sound like the typical study abroad experience, I had a great time at in Brighton, there is so much to between pub... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
Past Review London By Sea
I really enjoyed my time during exchange. Brighton is a beautiful city and plenty to do! I have made friends from all over Europe, which I was not expected! There are at least 40% of international students in the UK at their universities so it is very hard to just "hang" with locals. I have learned the different teach styles and... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Past Review Learning To Live
Yes. I've met people that I now consider my best friends. I've traveled all over Europe and ventured into Africa. I've pursued academic and personal dreams. Ask yourself when you will ever have an opportunity again in your life to spend the better part of a year away from your work, school, and family. Don't waste that oppo... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Same as previous question. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Yes. I met new friends from around the globe and acquired a much more global outlook. I do with that I had been more submerged in a new culture and that I had felt my classes to be worth my time. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was beyond worthwhile. I am grateful that I was able to participate. I further learned the differences between Europe and the US, as well as, broadened my independence. - University of California - Santa Barbara View Entire Review
Past Review
My experience was truly transformational. It will surely go down as one of the best and illuminating years of my life. I'm just simply ecstatic that I was given this opportunity and would do it again in a heartbeat. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned not to be afraid to travel alone (especially as a female traveler). This was the perfect time for me to learn about myself, what I like, and that I can offer myself the best company. The opportunities and experienced I from traveling around the UK and to different European countries if imperative in my belief that the ... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned more about being independent and street-smart. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
January 28, 2015 Pretty Normal Semester
I made international friends. I learned how much work goes into making a documentary. I would say in the end, I did enough to make it worthwhile. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

January 14, 2015 I Love Brighton
It was very worthwhile. I understand more about myself and have grown up. I know I want to travel more and find a career path in England. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
January 21, 2014 Beautiful Brighton
It was completely worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself and I was able to make a lot of friends and have fun in the process. I was able to learn about the different teaching styles that Sussex offers and I explored England and Europe as much as I could. If I had the opportunity again, I'd do it in a heartbeat. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Sussex: Brighton - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I learned how to communicate better with people whose beliefs and values are different from my own in a positive manner (and I even became friends with some of them!) I also learned more about what I value in other people and what I like to see when I travel and/or live somewhere. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned so much about the british, about slang, and just making really close friends. I gained so much from this experience it is so hard to put into words. traveling around europe as a student is a once in a lifetime experience. It's not to be missed! - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I definitely think studying abroad was worth while. I mean even with the hard parts you learn about yourself and what you want from your school and your education, you will grow despite everything. - Clark University View Entire Review
Going abroad had made me grow as a person and become more independent. Traveling to a different country without knowing anybody was extremely intimidating. I never thought I could go somewhere for a month by myself to an international university, and now I am going away to Japan in May for another amazing experience! - Rutgers University - New Brunswick/Piscataway View Entire Review
I gained a deeper understanding of many cultural backgrounds. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
Yes. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
More than anything, my time in England allowed me to break out of my comfort zone and experience something new. I have never tried so many new things as I did while abroad. Whether it was learning how to tell how a "true" Sussex blue cheese should taste, participating in a real English pub quiz, or taking the train to a new city... - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review
