I was very excited by the prospects of being able to study abroad, but this program really exceeded my expectations in terms of experience. I highly recommend going for the full year because after the first semester you finally feel more acclimated to the country and social norms and start becoming more integrated into the community. The year abroad gave me the opportunity to join clubs and teams, make real lasting friendships, as well as travel more. I was the first one in my family to go abroad (non-military) and it was such an eye-opening experience. It changed me and my perspective of the world for the better and gave me chance to explore different thoughts and ideals.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
