My experience abroad was definitely worthwhile. I learned that you can't put too much pressure on yourself to see and do everything because you will just be disappointed. Just take advantage of the opportunities that you can, and give yourself a break sometimes too. While studying abroad, you aren't really a local and you also a... - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review

I learned how to manage everything by myself without the help of anyone. - University of Miami View Entire Review
Thanks to the internet, living abroad has become much easier than 20 years ago, on the other hand, it is less an adventure. It was definitely worthwhile. I loved being in London, exploring the city and the habits of its people! View Entire Review

I felt like I was able to really connect with the history of London through all of my museum visits, tours and my Shakespeare: Themes and Presentation class. I especially felt that connection in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey, where I stood among the names of the authors that made English literature what it is today and ... - University of Westminster View Entire Review
I learned how to roll with the punches and how to survive living alone. Though I spend a lot of time working on class assignments and really put in a lot of effort in that area, I feel like I didn't really learn much. I learned how to budget my money and how to plan successful trips. I learned how to travel alone and to feel saf... - Wellesley College View Entire Review

I think that I gained confidence while abroad, so it was definitely worthwhile! - College of Charleston View Entire Review
I learned how to be confident in myself! Living in a new country on my own and not knowing anyone was a push outside my comfort zone, but I did it and had a blast.

Going abroad is a great ... - University of Wisconsin - Madison View Entire Review

I learned how to adapt to new living situations, how to interact best with people who came from different backgrounds and worldviews, it was definitely worth it! - Indiana Wesleyan University View Entire Review
My internship went really well and I gained a lot of practical life experiences such as budgeting/travel/independence/etc. In the long run it was worth it yes, but London is not a place I would ever live. Don't go for Spring semester, it rained and was freezing the ENTIRE time. - Virginia Commonwealth University / VCU View Entire Review
I matured a lot by living in a different continent and having to take care of food/money/etc. by myself. London is a diverse and exciting city with countless opportunities so I had many unforgettable experiences. The friendships and memories I made are irreplacable! - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained more understanding of the police force and it's history both based in the U.S. and London. - Washington State University View Entire Review

How to live in a foreign Country on my own. - University of Westminster View Entire Review
I learned how to be a apart of a culture that is different than my own. I learned life skills and lessons that I could only learn by living in London. I think it was so much more than worthwhile. I am so happy that I chose to do this. - Pace University View Entire Review
