BCA Study Abroad Reviews
New friends and culture
Submitted by Abby - University of Wisconsin La Crosse | August 04, 2014
I was pleased with how deep I got to be immersed into the Spanish culture. It was nice to be in a city that was smaller and not very touristy to get a real feel for the country and it's culture. My host family was amazing and added to make it an awesome experience.
The Adventure of a Life Time

Studying in Dunedin, New Zealand was an amazing experience. The Kiwis are super nice people and it seemed as though everyone just loved adventuring and exploring the outdoors! I do hope that one day I have the chance to go back and experience more of the country and I hope to stay connected with all of the awesome people that I met over there.
Semester with the Brits!
Submitted by Jenna Mattia - Messiah College | July 16, 2014
My semester abroad was AMAZING. I was constantly struck by the different culture despite the shared language. The class set-up definitely took some getting used to, and I highly suggest getting your flu shot before you go over (I learned this the hard way), but other than that, I made so many good friends and had a blast! Definitely an experience of a lifetime!

The BCA program in Barcelona Spain was an amazing experience. All of my classes were taught in Spanish by Spanish professors from the University of Barcelona. My classes were inside the university so I felt like I was receiving a genuine experience. Carmen and Alex were both very helpful in aiding all of us throughout the entire program. My living situation was excellent and I really developed a strong relationship with my host mom that I will cherish the rest of my life. My classes were challenging but really helped me learn Spanish as well as the history and culture of Spain. Overall I really enjoyed my time and would recommend it to anyone who has the opportunity to study abroad.

Incredibly Diverse Experience
Submitted by pazenelmundo - Goshen College | July 15, 2014
My time in Ecuador with BCA was certainly one of the most fantastic things I've done in my life so far. My host family was beyond kind to me and treated me as if I were their own daughter. BCA planned four different trips for us, including a week in the Galapagos Islands and a social justice focus was emphasized on the other three trips. It was so easy to travel on our own and see more of the incredibly biodiverse and culturally expansive country. Classes were taken through the University of San Francisco Quito, which has been rated the best university in the entire country. Unfortunately, that means that it attracts a certain crowd of well-off Ecuadorian students, which was unhelpful in my goal of integration with the cultural and experience of the different classes of Ecuadorian society. However, school is not the most important part of a study abroad experience, and I learned so much outside of the classroom that it didn't even matter.
