I will have lifelong friends that I would never have met otherwise and learned how to truly take care of myself so far from home. Hell yeah, it was worth it. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned how to live far away from home and became very comfortable with public transportation and the European culture. I feel much more independent and confident in general and have been inspired to want to travel more. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Past Review Awesome
I had the opportunity to interact with international students and learn from their perspective about business matters. Also the opportunity of interacting with different professors who have been part of the business world and learn about their views made my experience worthwhile. - University of California - Merced View Entire Review

Past Review Life Changing!
yes! - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
It was greatly worthwhile. Not only having going to a university that is so highly rated in the UK, but being in a program that was concerned with my cultural experiences. They encouraged us to go out and explore as much as we could. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I got to meet a lot of new, lasting friends, explore a lot of places, and learn about a new country that I've never been too. It was definitely an experience that will be with me forever. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review

Definitely worthwhile. I gained an understanding of cultural differences and made me think outside of the box as far as how we think as Americans and how we should be more open to differences. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Being at Sussex did not really change my outlook on the world. It was great meeting new people yet a lot of students enrolled in the program were from the US. At first I felt such a thrill being in a different country yet it became routine. After the first week it just seemed like I was at my home University only that it was En... - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Through my experiences, I have acquired skills such as conversating with people from other countries other than the one that i was studying at. It has impacted cultural awareness by appreciating other cultures as well as becoming open-minded on the type of lifestyle other people in countries live and how their daily life is like... - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Past Review It Was Whatevers
it was okay - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
I met a lot of new people from all over the world and my home university and it was also really interesting learning in a different environment. I also loved having the opportunity to travel! - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned more than was taught in my intro bio classes: I learned how to be self sufficient, how to adapt to a brand new culture, how to appreciate a history that wasn't my own, how to travel in countries where I don't speak the language, and how to stand on my own. I made many friends (albeit friends from california) and travel... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned that making new friends will make you less home sick. It was very worthwhile. - University of California - Merced View Entire Review
I loved the whole experience of being in another country, and it was nice that everyone still spoke English. The culture of the UK is awesome, at least in terms of art and fashion, which I learned about in my classes. I saw how people and cultures evolve in time, and found it intriguing that English people can always let loose w... - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review

From my program I gained the quality of seeking to learn about subjects not only from an American perspective, but also the importance of learning subjects from a foreign perspective. Studying abroad impacted my cultural awareness by showing me that people in different countries value different things for different reasons and ... - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Academically, I did not learn much. But, I feel like I grew personally. I was able to travel to other countries and experience being on my own. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Past Review Gloomy England
Yes, it was worthwhile. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Past Review Unsure
Yes, only my housing was terrible, the rest of the trip was fun. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Very worthwhile! I changed significantly yet for the best in the 2 short months I was abroad. I definitely want to find a job where I can travel often and continue to learn about the world around me. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was a great experience. I'm very glad I decided to do this program and would love to study abroad again in a different country to further expand my horizons. - University of California - Merced View Entire Review
Yes. I learned to cope with really bland food, a different learning setting. - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
Absolutely! I my class was interesting and fulfilled a prerequisite for graduate school, I was able to immerse myself into true English culture (something I don't think you can achieve truly in London), and I had the opportunity to travel to Scotland for a weekend. My only recommendation would be to do this program for the full... - None View Entire Review
