Awesome

I had an amazing time at Kingston University! ! It was a once in a lifetime experience!! I met great people and loved being able to jump on a train any time I wanted to go into London. There was a lot to do to actually get there and a lot of money was spent, but I would do it all over in a heart beat!!

Wonderful experiences with an okay program.

First of all, London is absolutely amazing! Get up in the mornings and spend time exploring the city and all that it has to offer. There is so much to do, see, and experience. I had a fantastic time in Surbiton, Kingston, and London and made some great memories.

The Summer School program was alright in my opinion. A large percentage of the students that attend the program are Americans, so if you want to be completely immersed in the British culture with other British students pick a different program. It's all up to personal preference. Something else that I noticed was that a group of people were more interested in drinking and partying in Surbiton or Kingston than going out and exploring London. Again, that is a personal preference. I was over 21, so the ability to legally drink was nothing new. I spent most of my time with a few close friends, or by myself, exploring Central London. The museums, shops, restaurants, markets, and parks are amazing! Other than that, the accommodations and everything else was great. My class was also very interesting. (I suggest only taking one class, so you have time to explore. If you take two, you are in class 5 days a week instead of 2 or 3.)

There are a few other things I wish I knew before I left. DO NOT pack too much. You will go shopping and can buy whatever you have forgotten. However, pack for all weather (cold, rain, sunny, and hot) and pack some nicer clothes. Londoners dress a little bit nicer than most Americans. Also, you will need cash, but get a credit card that doesn't charge international fees. They take credit cards almost everywhere, and then you'll avoid all those extra international and exchange fees. (If you have a chip and pin card that is fantastic, but a majority of places also take swipe.) Go on extra trips. Try new things. Spend money on tours, a show, and whatever else you enjoy. You're there, so why not. Enjoy the short time that you have in Europe. It will go by fast!

Determining

Argentina is a wonderful place. Great food, great atmosphere, and freat people. I met so many friends who I still keep in touch with. This stusy abroad trip has no planned events. Which was good and bad.The good part forced me to go out, plan, and meet people. I grew as an individual and learned a lot about myself. The bad, well more like an improvement, could have been at least one planned event. Maybe a tour. I learned a new level of independence, confidence, communication skills, and a lot of spanish. Anyone who wants to go should! And go for 3 months, 1 month was too short!

England is Always a Good Idea

I decided to study abroad at Kingston University for a month during the summer after my sophomore year. It was the perfect length of time, in my opinion, and a great location. It was a great way to immerse myself in a different culture without being in a country where I did not speak the language. For the most part, the professors do a great job with balancing in-class lectures with outside excursions. The program hosts a variety of social events to make sure students get to know one another. Also, when I went, there were optional weekend trips to Paris, Ireland, or Scotland that you could sign up for. I would definitely recommend taking advantage of those opportunities since I greatly enjoyed the Ireland and Paris trips, and heard great things about the Scotland one. It was really easy to commute around the city since the program includes a 1-month travel card. It was intimidating and overwhelming at first, but it was surprisingly easy to learn how to use. The only struggle was being responsible for your own meals as there was no meal plan. Overall, it was one of the best experiences of my life and I learned more about the world and myself than I ever could have imagined.
