Prague is amazing. period. Past Review

By (Radio-Television-Film, The University of Texas at Austin) for

University of Texas - Austin: Prague - Prague Documentary Photography

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
Yes, it was very worthwhile. It gave me insight on other cultures and gave me a sense of independence as cliche as it may sound. I've learned not to be so reliable on others and to learn to find my way around different countries without knowing much of the language. It makes me want to continue traveling and documenting my travels so much more.

Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The classes I took were awesome! Very interesting and incorporated photography well with the Czech studies class.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

The program was very organized and we were able to communicate comfortably with everyone there. My expectations were met!

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

Great and modern apartment. The furniture wasn't too comfy but the neighborhood was nice and friendly enough. I was glad that there were markets around every corner and that access to food was easy.

* Food:

Food was average. I was glad that there were comfort foods that would allow me to satisfy those cravings for "American" food.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Amazing. There was always something to do in Prague whether it was going to the zoo, local clubs and pubs, or just walking around old town discovering new things.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)

Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? No, I expected to pay as much as I did.


How would you rate your language skills at the beginning of the program? None
