Review Your Program

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

extremely rigorous

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

administration was quite slow in responding and would often require me to come in-person to figure things out

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Had no health care needs

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

The best mixture of intense academics and a new international experience.


* 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)

Took a lot of effort, but was able to take advantage of cheap student-price friendly food nearby


* Did your program have a foreign language component? No
