Best Time of my Life

This experience was one I will never forget! CISabroad was amazing in the application process, and went above and beyond while I was overseas. There were excursions included in the tuition, and the small group of CIS students became a small family. I had the privilege of traveling to 8 different countries in a short 5 month period, and was immersed in culture. I made friends that will last a lifetime, was able to live on my own in a foreign setting, and was constantly pushed out of my comfort zone in the best way possible.

How can this program be improved?
I know there is always room for improvement, but I cannot think of anything I would change about the program. It was fun, the people were helpful and easy to contact, and the experience was life changing!

London Semester Review: Fall 2017

I studied abroad through CISabroad for the fall 2017 semester, and had a better experience than I could have ever hoped for! I loved the University of Roehampton campus and how easy I found it to navigate the neighborhood. All of my instructors were amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the classes I took. There were plenty of things going on around campus to get involved with and I formed some truly great friendships through those opportunities.

The excursions that were included through CISabroad were amazing bonuses to the experience. The weekend Edinburgh trip was probably my absolute favorite. I loved traveling by train to Scotland, visiting a whiskey distillery, and indulging in local cuisine among other things. Another excursion was to Brighton which was also great aside from the incredibly dreary weather.

My actual overseas experience was incredible but the journey to getting abroad was good as well. My questions were always answered and the people of CISabroad were always extremely helpful.
I would definitely choose CISabroad again for my abroad experience.

My Semester in London

I spent January to May 2016 at the University of Roehampton in London, England through CIS and incredible doesn't even begin to describe my time there. I had the opportunity to experience different learning and academic styles, travel to more than 8 countries, try all different types of food, meet people and make lifelong friends with people all over the world, and so much more.

CIS was amazing starting right away with a welcome dinner, having day trips to places like Windsor Castle, and always there to answer any questions or concerns. Roehampton Uni itself is beautiful, the living situation is nice (you get your own room!), and they host all different events throughout the week from karaoke, to discounted club nights, and access to all of the clubs on campus!

I went to London through CIS on my own - I knew no one getting onto that plane in Boston - but I was confident and prepared thanks to all of the help from the CIS staff. I left London with a group of girls I still talk to almost every single day and have visited/plan to visit in the near future and the stories and experiences I have are so special to me.

If you are thinking about going abroad - do it! And go through CIS!

How can this program be improved?
I had some difficulties getting quick responses or information I needed quickly and efficiently from my adviser before leaving the states.

My semester in London

My time at the University of Roehampton was fantastic. First of all, the campus, especially Grove House, is gorgeous and different than any other campus in London. The class scheduled offered plenty of time to explore the city and surrounding cities and even countries on top of academics. Living with home students in a flat of six people (some were other study abroad students) was a challenge but also fun because I made some great friends along the way. CIS was great at helping get students settled in and being available throughout the semester if we needed help or just someone to talk to. The excursions were interesting and unique; they were not your typical tourist activities, but interesting things such as a visit to Kensington Palace and high tea at The Orangery. Overall, it was a great experience in a great city.

How can this program be improved?
I think it would be good to discuss the living situation a little more and how best to approach it. Sometimes it was a challenge living with so many different people, especially as someone who isn't into drinking.
