Summer 2017 Participant
Be wary of seagulls. But in all seriousness, don't be afraid to go outside your comfort zone while traveling abroad. Try haggis, climb Arthur's Seat, or even go to the Globe Theatre and watch Twelfth Night where it was originally shown. These are the once in a lifetime opportunities, and you don't want to miss it simply because it's more comfortable to relax in your room watching netflix.

This program, while incredible, is very museum intensive, so if one doesn't really find museums interesting, it could be annoying, potentially. There was a lot more actual time-consuming schoolwork that I was expecting, so one should be prepared for that but making sure not to give up actual experiences to get it done (which I think some people struggled with). Make sure to start reading the assigned reading super early, because there is not a whole lot of time during the actual trip, which is not what I was expecting. Remember that you are not going to like EVERYONE on your trip, and that is totally natural, there is usually an interesting (and usually fun!) mix of people on study abroad. Sometimes it takes a while for people to warm up, but it is important to give people the space to do so, but when they do, it can make the trip that much better. No matter how much research you do beforehand, be open and flexible to new experiences.

My favorite part of this program was the extensive cultural experience that is offered everyday. I loved how the professors did not oversee all of the activities/meals of the group and allowed the group to experience the UK in some areas alone. This is where I learned the most about the people and ideas. I loved the freedom the professors offered and think that this is my favorite part of the program.
