Good place to visit, not a good place to study

Peru is such a great place to travel. I have visited areas from all over the country including Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Ica and even Iquitos. While the travel aspect is great (and very affordable), USIL is NOT the place to study. The International Office does not work to help students and makes very simple tasks quite difficult and it seems as if they are always working against you and not with you. I have yet to meet one international student that hasn't had any problems with USIL and most of the time they were non-cooperative when we would need something. I personally had asked for a Spanish tutor and was told that they could not help me and that I would have to pay for it when I know almost, if not at all, other countries have timetables set up for the international students to learn the language. USIL made it very hard to enjoy my time at school and hurt my overall experience in Peru.

Switzerland Abroad

Franklin is a small school, but the perfect size to study abroad, I absolutely love it here. The city of Lugano is so beautiful and the location of the school gives you easy access to everything the city has to offer. Switzerland is also the perfect country to study because it has a little bit of everything and it is so easy to travel to other parts of Europe. I would tell everyone to take advantage of this amazing opportunity, you won't regret it!

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!
