CAPA The Global Education Network Reviews
CAPA abroad, Dublin, Ireland
Submitted by Rebecca Van Spall-Hood - Lasell College | February 05, 2018
CAPA did an incredible job of immersing me into the Dublin culture, as well as preparing me professionally with my fantastic internship opportunity. I was able to work with the Bridge Project, which allowed me to work directly and indirectly with previously violent offenders. Their aim is to reduce recidivism in the Dublin community, and promote healthy relationships with the men and their probation officers. I gained a stronger sense of cultural competence, and learned so much about the history and society of Ireland.
CAPA is more than a study abroad program
Submitted by Lindsay Jessica Lerner - University of Delaware | February 03, 2018
I studied abroad during Fall 2017 in London through the CAPA program. CAPA supplied me with a fantastic crew of supportive teachers and faculty, who helped me navigate London. I found my own path there and, in a way, discovered who I am. I am forever grateful for the people I met and the time I spent in London. I'm not one to encourage people to do anything. I would encourage anyone who wants to study abroad to do it through CAPA. The supply everything you need to have an amazing time, discover who you are, and learn. If I could go back to London tomorrow, I would. The program gives you three-day weekend, so you can go to other parts of Europe and explore. I went to Greece, Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium and many other countries. In each place I discovered something new, made new friends, and saw places and things I didn't dream I would ever see. CAPA is more than a study abroad program it's a transformative experience that will hold some of your greatest life memories.

Studying abroad, especially a country so far away from my own, gave me a new sense of independence and confidence from going abroad and going outside of my comfort zone. I met so many people that are now amazing friends! The opportunities for travel and adventure are limitless! CAPA was by my side the whole time and always available for support or resources. The experiences I was able to get from living in another country and having the ability to travel to such amazing places was incredible and I will cherish the memories forever!
Interning and Studying Abroad Changed me Personally and Professionally!
Submitted by Hannah Toomey - Arizona State University | November 19, 2017
This program helped me grow so much. I gained confidence both personally and professionally. The internship has helped me land other internships since being back and has made me confident in what I would like to do in the future. I am also now much more confident in speaking to people from all over!
I loved the educational experience I had here! I was able to complete required classes for my Supply Chain Management major, such as economics and supply chain, but they had a global twist to them! Apart from that my internship counted for credit and I was able to take a fun class: pop-culture in the UK! All of my classes included 1 or more field trips in the surrounding London area!
The administration was super helpful! There was always someone at the desk when I arrived at CAPA to help me with places to eat, things to do, doctors appointments and many other things! The administrative team planned outings for all of CAPA students to attend. They were extremely helpful and supportive throughout the entire process.
The living was overall very satisfactory. I loved my roomates and the flat itself was super cute! The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star review is because it was very small, but what can you expect when living in nearly the center of a huge city! The proximity to the Tube and grocery stores were a definite plus. I'd live in my flat again in a heartbeat
For the most part I felt very safe. My specific flat location would recieve a 5 star review on safety, however, London is a large city and like most large cities it does have its sketchy areas. Be aware of this and make sure you know where you are going to end up!
London is an expensive city. Be prepared for that when you come. There are definitely ways to save though, such as not eating out constantly or enjoying free activities like walks through Hyde Park!
I would absolutely study here again!!
Best study abroad experience I could've asked for
Submitted by Emmie Madsen - University of Missouri | November 13, 2017
CAPA placed me in the most ideal internship position, provided nice student housing in one of the best London neighborhoods, and overall allowed me to take advantage of all that interning abroad offers. During the planning, CAPA ensured I was placed at an internship I was interested in. Over video chat, we went over my resume, discussed my strengths and described where I could see myself working. I was placed at the most ideal public relations agency in the middle of the city. On top of the internship which was three days a week, I was in two classes taught by professors that made everything engaging and interesting. The CAPA center was a place we could use to study and do homework.
In one specific instance, I needed to see a doctor on short notice. The CAPA staff answered my call in the middle of the night and kept in touch making sure I had everything I needed to feel better. They worked very hard to make sure all of the students felt safe.
All in all, CAPA was the perfect study abroad provider and I recommend it to every student looking to go abroad, strengthen their resume and see the world!
