An extraordinary experience!

Overall 10

There are so many moments I wish I could relive during my study abroad in Beijing, China. The SU Abroad Beijing staff really wants you to have an incredible experience. They will work with you to make sure your needs are met. The SU Beijing Center is located at Tsinghua University, which is where you will be taking your courses with experienced professors. Classes will never be boring because it is a mix of discussion and field trips to historical and cultural landmarks around Beijing (The Great Wall, The Forbidden City, 798 Art District). Getting around is pretty easy--from your dorm all the way to the Chinese language center, you can practically bike all over campus! The cafeteria food is cheap and delicious! If you're feeling homesick, simply bike (8 minutes) or walk (15 minutes) to the neighborhood center, Wudaokou, for some Western cuisine!

What sets the SU Abroad Beijing program apart from others is its two-week signature seminar. When you first start the program, you will have 2-weeks to dive deeper into China's history and understand the perspective of locals who are trying to improve some of the country's issues. When I was abroad (Fall 2014), we had visits to environmental NGOs and had visits to ethnic-minority villages. You'll learn a lot about China by the time the program ends, and I guarantee you'll have so much to share after your return!

How can this program be improved?
This program tends to have mostly political science/international relations/economics/history courses; however, independent study is also possible for other fields--such as communications (with the approval of your home college).

The Music Program - A Completely Well-Rounded Program

Overall 10

Le Conservatoire de Strasbourg in connection with the Syracuse University Strasbourg Center is an excellent program overall that allowed me to fully grow as a musician. From the amazing professors, to my internships, to simply travelling across Europe all by myself I was able to gain the maximum benefits during my time abroad. Though I was skeptical to go anywhere abroad the faculty fully helped me adjust to the new territory.

Opportunities to experience the city like local

Overall 9

There are so many amazing aspects of this program, but I think for me one of the most important parts was the independence that it provides. You are given the chance to find your own housing in London, with roommates and a landlord that you pick yourself. As stressful as it was at the time, it was an amazing way to experience life not just as an abroad student, but as a Londoner. Since it is easy to schedule classes for only three or four days a week, there is a lot of time to explore the city on your own or travel to other countries. The program has an AMAZING staff who is always there to help you with anything you need, but is not going to tell you what to do if you're not looking for that. There are tons of opportunities for free field trips, interesting classes and more that really enhanced my experience.

How can this program be improved?
Some of the housing options are pretty shabby for the price that you're paying. We really didn't know what we were getting into when we signed our lease, but because of the limited time we did it anyways. A little more info on the properties/landlords would be nice.
