Life changing

This study abroad experience was very knowledgeable and eye opening. Not only did we learn about sustainability but we lived it while on campus and through hands on activities. We had fun adventures like snorkeling in the open ocean and crocodile/ bird sighting.

Study abroad: tackling environmental issues

I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking for deep cultural emersion and a hands on, short term course. The course mostly deals with waste management so if you are interested in that or in calculations of carbon emissions this is a good course for you.

Tackling environmental issues course

I really enjoyed taking this course at EARTH for two weeks. It applied things learned in the classroom to the real-world through hands-on activities and a weekend field trip. Although I really enjoyed the class, think it could be improved by adding another component to the curriculum involving an environmental issue and adding another weekend field trip that complies to it.

    All of our courses are based on our main driver "learning by doing" and we are happy that you have experience and lived this!

Environmental awareness

Wonderful program!!! Campus is gorgeous and students are friendly. Come prepared to make friends and learn about the environment at EARTH. The only negative aspect about this campus is that is very isolated.

    Thanks for the great review, Our campus has students with 25 nationalities and we all love to make new friends, specially in meal time, don't you agree? this is a perfect added value with the overall academic experience :)

    Also, as you say, our campus is a little bit isolated, but it is compensated with our big forest, our amazing river and the abundant wildlife of monkeys, sloths and many other animals, which is a perfect experience and opportunity to connect with nature.

    If you have more comments just let us know, we will love to hear them out!

Tackling environmental issues course

I really enjoyed the field trips associated with this course by in general the course curriculum didn't seem relevant to my internship. Overall I'm very glad I experienced this course and met some of the students in the class. Ricardo was amazingly helpful as well!

    Hi Sarah!

    Thank you for your review, we are also glad that you have a wonderful experience despite the curriculum was not relevant to you, we will keep working to make it better.

    On the other hand we also think Ricardo (our group assistant) is amazing! Thank you for your feedback!
