Global Learning Semesters

I felt dropped off with no support, unsafe neighborhood no where near the center of Paris. Program different from what website claimed.

The apartment situation is really a luck of the draw type thing; however, if you're unhappy with where you're staying/roommates or anything else they will switch you. The program has a few kinks to work out, but GLS really does bend over backwards to try and make you as happy as possible. You have to arrive within a given time frame to be picked up at the airport with the group, and you have to arrange your own transportation to the airport when you leave.
Hello! Can you please elaborate. Im thinking of applying to the program and would love your feedback. Did they not pick you up at the airport? Was your apt really far?

This program was a GREAT value for the money. I've traveled a lot, and I know how much this trip would have cost elsewhere. I learned so much.. not just "book" stuff, but so much hands-on experience. This was by far the best thing I could have done for my Veterinary application. Research wherever you choose to go so you are knowledgeable about the area... that way you know what to expect. It's not the companies fault if you don't do your own research.... besides, you'll get the most out of your trip. Not only would I recommend it, but I would come back as a TA.

Todd Liversay is the shit! The support was amazing, especially considering that everything in Cyprus took at least two weeks to process. The students were mostly loud, drunken, embarassing idiots, but I did manage to make some permanent bonds with those who were not quite so rambunxious! Studying abroad anywhere is well worth the cost and risk!

I had the time of my life. I still talk with all 3 roommates on a regular basis. Scheduled Egypt trip with others in the program, well worth it. changed my program a few weeks in, management had no problem and credits transferred smoothly. Would have liked a little more organization in Italy travel, but I'm sure that has been improved since summer 2007. Super jealous there's a Barcelona trip now, would have loved that! Overall, the best summer of my life. I was able to manipulate my schedule to get to the beach, go shopping, ect... on a regular basis. Even kept in touch with a few Cypriot friends, yayy.
Todd, Antonis, Dr.P, Angelo-- THANK YOU!! MISS YOU BUNCHES!!!
