February 11, 2023 Kcl Ifsa Review
I would say it was worthwhile to study abroad. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
University is very different in the UK than it is in America. The life experiences I gained from abroad was much more helpful in my development as a human being than the actual studying was. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
May 17, 2022 A Fun Experience
I learned how to better manage myself in a big city. It was worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I believe it was worthwhile to study abroad. I learned to be independent and get out of my comfort zone by living in and exploring a big city such as London. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile! I learned a lot about myself, I took courses that Middlebury's curriculum could not offer me and had the amazing opportunity to live in a wonderful and contrasting city - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Learned how to live in a city. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I feel my primary area of growth was in learning how to live more independently and not rely on other people for entertainment. There were many times that I would spend large chunks of time completely alone in a foreign country, and a big are of growth for me was becoming comfortable with that. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Learned about so many different religions and cultures, was able to open myself up to people from all over the world. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

August 13, 2022 A Way To Escape!
Yes, I learned to be more independent emotionally and financially. I was able to accustom myself to a community with a wider range of cultures. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
While studying abroad has its own unique challenges like adjusting to a new academic system and learning to be self-sufficient, I made so many memories I will cherish for a long time. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Life Changing!
It was definitely worthwhile. You learn a lot about independence and taking care of yourself both physical and mentally. Because IFSA does not have any "host families", you are essentially a "regular" full time student. Students can design their study abroad experience however they want. - Hamilton College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I enjoyed the city; exploring, biking, sightseeing, etc. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review I Love London
I enjoyed living in London. It was absolutely worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained to appreciate other cultures. Yes. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Definitely a worthwhile experience. I learned a lot - had to learn how to live on my own to a further extent than before, gained the ability to enjoy exploring places alone, learned to go more out of my comfort zone and take on more responsibilities. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
