Yes, I recommend this program

amazing experience

I had a great time! I was able to complete major requirements and have the experience of a lifetime! I took difficult science classes, to keep myself on track with my biology major. The classes were in line with the difficulty of my home university. All classes were taught in english, by professionals within their field (ex. psych class taught by a real life psychologist) I was able to set up time to volunteer in a local hospital as well, which will look great on my resume. I had no issues transferring credits at all, everything came through easily. The program itself is great. It includes three overnight excursions and many day trips. The program directors are impeccable and easy to reach. Highly recommend for all majors, not just science. Theres no program quite like this for the same cost.
