Tangier, Morocco: UNE Campus

10/10

Going to Tangier was the best decision of my life. It brought me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to meet people I never would have otherwise. The group excursions to Rabat, Marrakesh, Tetouan, Chefchaouen, and Sevilla only brought our group closer and enhanced our cultural experience. However, staying right in Tangier was an adventure in itself. There were always people to see, cafes and views to enjoy, or local events going on in the city (the soccer games are awesome!). Don't hesitate to apply and take advantage of this amazing program. The staff and campus are wonderful and so are the locals of Morocco!

How can this program be improved?

Provide a better variety of classes for students.

Amazing experience

10/10

Although it's been 2 years since I was abroad in Morocco, I still benefit from the experience now. Everything about the program is fantastic- I was able to utilize the beautiful campus and great academic program, as well as experience the amazing culture for barely any cost. Living on the UNE campus allowed me to make life long friends, explore Tangier, and also experience different cities and countries during excursions included with the program.

During my semester, I visited 5 different moroccan cities and traveled to Spain as excursions included with the cost, and was able to plan my own trips to different countries during the weekends and over breaks. However, I learned that Tangier is an amazing city in itself- the city is rich in diversity, has a vibrant nightlife, and is really just a lot of fun!

Even now, I still benefit from participating in this program. Having been abroad for 4 months, I feel much more comfortable traveling and interacting in new places. Doing a semester abroad also looks great on a resume- as a graduating senior, I even have a job lined up abroad thanks to this program!

How can this program be improved?

The only thing I wish I had during this program would be more help with academics- tutoring resources and things like that. Since then, however, this has become available!

Best Experience Ever

10/10

By far the best thing I have ever done in my entire life. I am so happy to have had the chance to study abroad in Morocco and find my self constantly wishing I was back abroad. Not only did I receive an amazing education while abroad but I also had the chance to immerse myself in Muslim culture, make friends with the locals and travel to France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Germany and London on the weekends. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking for something fun to do during their time in college. Anyone who doesn't do this is missing out.

How can this program be improved?

Don't really have any complaints about the program. Food was a bit of an adjustment but that's because we were in a different country and soon found myself loving it and up to trying new things. The only real issue I found was some minor lacks in communication between the staff on campus in terms of planning group trips but all issues were minor things with quick fixes.
