Overall Experience
My experience with ASE was the most worthwhile experience of my life thus far. I cannot imagine my life if I did not choose, as I gained learning how to achieve a balance of social and academic endeavors and how to be independent. This was my first experience living on my own in a completely new place, and I am honored that I ha... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile, I became a much better writer and made good friends. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. Although the UK is similar to the US in many aspects, I felt I was able to experience a different side of the world. An example- I would never take public buses in the US, but in Bath, that was my main mode of transportation. Additionally, I was able to study and immerse myself in the local culture,... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned how to be independent in a different country. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Not all learning can be done in a classroom. Your surroundings, the people you see on your daily walks, the landmarks you visit can all teach you so much if you are willing to open your eyes and take it all in. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes, this was very worthwhile. This was the first time I had travelled alone to a foreign country, and I learned a lot of lessons about how to travel solo. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Literary Heaven!
Yes it was worthwhile. I learned how to cook for myself as well as navigate a new city, and I improved my public speaking skills for my internship. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Amazing!
Independence and a renewed joy for being an English major. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Bath Is A Dream!
I gained close friends with whom I have/will stay in contact and incredible memories of the best experiences.England has to offer. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
My writing, in particular, improved a lot with the instruction and feedback I got here. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained a different perspective on politics and culture in the world by working an internship and taking classes with British tutors. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to not be afraid to try something new which allowed me to be more daring in my life at home and at school. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Waking up in Bath was waking up happy! The pace of life there was so wonderful, it totally changed me. I also gained work experience and incredible travel memories, in addition to close American friends. I wouldn't trade my experience for the world. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
This program made me realize how much I can do in 5 weeks! Super worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned that I am significantly more independent than I originally thought. I was also able to see some cultural differences in Education that were really interesting. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Academically, it was a great experience to learn from British faculty and experience a different culture of learning. Also, with such a writing-intensive nature to both my courses, I think that I became a better, faster writer. I made so many amazing friends and felt very connected to the community; I can see myself returning to... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned to have autonomy, and to navigate a foreign country with my own wits and judgment. I made sure to exit my comfort zone and undertake things I wouldn't have previously believed I could do, and after which I could think back with pride. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much about art and living in the moment it was truly the most beautiful experience of my life. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Advanced Studies England: Bath - ASE Study Centre
I feel like I gained a very deep love and understanding of British culture. Many of the people on the program, myself included, are already talking about our plans to revisit Bath and England whether it be for graduate school or beyond, because we had a very special connection to the city and the country. The courses were all gr... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was an amazing way to travel and see countries I’d never seen before. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Advanced Studies England: Bath - ASE Study Centre
Simply learning the eccentricities of how another country worked by living as a relatively independent citizen in one of its cities, alone, was a worthwhile experience. The sheer amount of cultural and historical experiences embedded in the program from seeing plays at Shakespeare's birthplace to exploring the ruins of a castle ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I got to live in one of my favorite countries and really experience British life. I saw the greater part of Southern England and went on trips that were academically-interesting, culturally-enriching, entertaining, and even sometimes athletically-challenging (in a good way). I tried many new things, including traveling alone, ta... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned more about England and English culture that I had always wanted to know. It was worth every second. My only regret was that I had to leave. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned how to independently find my way in a new place and rely on myself. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
As cliched as it is, I learned about myself. Leaving Wellesley pushed me further from my comfort zone than I'd ever been; I gained confidence and pride in my own intellect. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
