Summer Abroad at University of Brighton 2017

10/10

I had a great experience studying abroad at University of Brighton. Naturally, I was a little nervous to study abroad because I had never traveled outside of the United States alone. However, it paid off because it turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. The teachers were amazing, and I learned so much that I will be able to use in my future job. The program coordinators in Brighton, Becca and Mary, were a great source of support throughout our trip. They were so helpful and brought us on all of the fun weekend trips. I felt like I could come to them to ask questions any time. Overall, I learned tools to use in my own classroom and had fun adventures that I would have never experienced at home. Embracing the British culture, and seeing all of these historical sites was really a once in a lifetime experience. I am so glad I chose this program!

Amazing School and City

10/10

Brighton is the absolute perfect place to study abroad. The city is amazing and you instantly feel at home and at ease. There is so much to do, and if you're coming from a big city or a small town, you will find your place in Brighton. Mary, Becca, and Zoe of the study abroad team and all of my professors were excellent, friendly, and made an effort to get to know me. This program also really stands out from other study abroad programs because of the field trips. They were affordable (sometimes free!), so much fun, and gave me a chance to see things I never would have seen otherwise. I wouldn't trade my study abroad experience at Brighton for the world and wish I could have had all four years of University in such an amazing place.

Response from University of Brighton

We're glad you enjoyed your time in Brighton and you feel the field trips enhanced your study abroad experience - they give the students the opportunity to see places they may not otherwise get to see. We hope to see you back here one day!

Best Decision I've Ever Made

10/10

I always wanted to study abroad in England so after being told about Brighton, I knew thats where I wanted to study. It is such an amazing town, you have the city with all the shopping, while also having the sea two steps away. The University is great for students coming abroad because the Study Abroad team is AMAZING. They make sure you feel comfortable every step of the way. They are there to help with picking classes and also just to have a chat if your feeling homesick! Couldn't of asked for a better support team for my year abroad. The teachers at Brighton Uni are also so helpful and understanding, they genuinely care about students doing well. Brighton will always have a special place in my heart, I couldn't imagine studying abroad anywhere else.

How can this program be improved?

Nothing, it is amazing!

Come to Brighton!

10/10

I have absolutely loved my time at Brighton University. By going through USAC, I was able to meet people both from England and the States. The dorms were nice, nothing fancy, but nothing bad. The campuses are beautiful. The city is amazing. I have no complaints. Be prepared to get comfortable taking public transportation and to do a decent amount of walking. BUT -also be prepared to have the best 4 months of your life.

Response from University of Brighton

Mary, Becca and I are so glad you've had the 'best 4 months of your life' - that's what we aim for!

Such An Amazing Experience!

10/10

I thoroughly enjoyed my semester abroad studying at the University of Brighton. Although Brighton is still a city, it is not so big that it is overwhelming. I found it very easy to get around on the public transportation. The study abroad staff at the University of Brighton are so great; they were always so kind and helpful whenever I had a question or needed to talk to someone. The classes I found to be fascinating and did well to give me a new perspective on the world and other cultures. I met so many awesome people during my time here that came from various places from my home country as well as other countries. I enjoyed all the trips that the program here offers as well, they were so cool in getting to see various parts of England and Paris. My favorite memory would be the Bath and Stonehenge trip since we had the opportunity to see another British city, further build upon the new friendships, and see a beautiful place like the Stonehenge. This program impacted my life in such a huge way; I gained a broader perspective on the world, international friendships, and a new found love for traveling.

How can this program be improved?

At this time I cannot think of a way that the program could be improved, since I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Response from University of Brighton

I'm so glad this programme had impacted your life so positively. We hope you return home with some incredible memories and as you say, some new 'international' friendships.
