Overall Experience
Not everyone likes game. Public transportation is awesome. - University of Arizona View Entire Review
Independence. Yes but I would not recommend University of Westminster to anyone. - University of Arizona View Entire Review
I gained so many things including life long friends and memories. I learned a lot in my classes as well. Apart from school I learned a lot about my self and the kind of person I want to grow into. This experience was absolutely worthwhile. I would recommend it to anyone and I would do it again in a heart beat. - University of Kansas View Entire Review
I have become so independent, mature, and cultural. It was incredibly worthwhile. - Pace University View Entire Review
It was certainly worthwhile. I gained first-hand cultural immersion experience that has helped to broaden my global view. - University of Westminster View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing
I got the chance to have classes on something I love and doesn't really exist in my country of origin - University of Westminster View Entire Review
My experience abroad was the best decision I have ever made in my life. I learned so much about different cultures and the people in them. My horizons were greatly expanded upon by being in the classroom with a different structure than at my home university and having people from all over the world in my modules. - University of Westminster View Entire Review
Life is about who you know, not what you know. The connections I made in the city have proven that time and time again. The relationships we built made my time in London worth every second. - Berea College View Entire Review
Awareness of the world, meeting international students, meeting people from other cultures, trying different food, trying different methods of life, exploring. - Philadelphia University View Entire Review
Fun integrating with a culture different from yours and you meet great people from around the world. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Studying abroad literally opened up a whole new world for me. It was definitely the experience of a lifetime. I made some amazing friends, I have seen places I never dreamed of seeing, I experience the culture of living in a new city. Studying abroad has definitely made me more of an independent person. It has allowed me to be t... - Roger Williams University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was extremely worthwhile. In taking classes outside my major, I realized that my career path belongs in business (I had previously considered law school) and that I am, in fact, eager to begin my accounting job upon return to the United States. I am also grateful to have had the opportunity to experien... - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
It gives you a perspective on yourself and the world that you had never expected to gain (nor knew you were lacking). Limit your contact with fellow Americans and surround yourself with locals and other internationals; it'll pay off for you in more ways than can be explained here. - University of Wisconsin - Stout View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing!
So many amazing experiences I never would have thought I would be able to have if I hadn't studied abroad! Truly remarkable!! - Pace University View Entire Review
I gained not just a new life perspective, but found independence in the little daily things. I learned the most not inside the classroom, but on the streets of London. I left behind my experience and life back home, living everyday in the moment and challenging myself to do something new everyday. - DePauw University View Entire Review
I gained a knowledge about how other countries operate, learned about myself. - Pace University View Entire Review
Past Review Ehhh
Everything I gained from studying abroad had nothing to do with Westminster - Fordham University View Entire Review
I had a lot of amazing experiences that made it worth it. - University of Westminster View Entire Review
The most valuable thing that I learned was the experience of living in another country. Being able to adapt to different cultures is a very important thing that I think everyone should learn. - University of Westminster View Entire Review
I traveled to 16 countries while I was there, so I got to experience lots of different cultures. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I learned how independent I am, how smart and resourceful I can be. I learned that new places and situations and people are things I crave, not shy away from or fear. And there is so much of the world out there to see and experience and explore. It was amazing. - DePaul University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with University of Westminster: London - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I learned about differences in culture, history, and art. I learned so much about the subjects I study like new ways to write and new ways to think about Shakespeare. It was the most worthwhile experience of my life. - Grand Valley State University View Entire Review
Past Review Learning A Lot
I learned how to be independent. Yes. - Roger Williams University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Direct Enrollment: London - University of Westminster
I learned to be much more independent and self-sufficient. I learned how to make new friends in a strange place, figure things out on my own, and stick to a budget. - Roger Williams University View Entire Review
