Default Study Abroad

Alright so I currently looking into studying abroad during the next academic year (a year from now) and I am trying to figure out the best country to do so. So I was hoping some people here would have some good stories or advice from previous abroad experiences or anyone with any good travel stories is more then welcome to share input.

My cousin got an opportunity in 2006 from his university to go to England and study at Oxford University and it was for like a whole semester and he really enjoyed every minute of it. He use to be a shy kid but now he is a really outgoing kid because of the trip. He has told me numerous of times to try to study abroad as well but I haven't had the chance to go on one yet.

Ive heard Australia is awesome, but also really similar to Southern California, which is where I go to school (UC San Diego).

I have also heard good things about Japan, but a lot of the programs offered are very technical (engineering, math, science...etc) and I'm a double major in Communications and History (not so technical).

Cost really depends on the program. Most of the ones offered through my school are around 20-30k for the year long program, which is relatively comparable to my current tuition.

I think I may be looking to go somewhere that isn't one of the most common places to go abroad (I feel like Spain, Italy, UK, and Australia are the most common). Kinda looking to go somewhere a bit different. Maybe looking towards Denmark, the Netherlands, or maybe even South America. But like I said I'm open to anything if it is the right program.

I lived in Germany, and it is absolutely fantastic. I would reccomend there for sure. Germans were always extremely nice and there are lots of places to travel to. Beautiful country, and beautiful girls in the big cities. Just don't live in the middle of no where like I did...bunch of ugly girls there.

Germany has been a consideration being that I took German in high school, but that isn't too much of a factor because I want a program with classes in English anyways.

And in regards to studying a broad...I can assure that will be an integral part of the experience.

I'd go to Austrailia since there is no language barrier and it's cooler than England.

I'd feel so uncomfortable living in a place where I couldn't understand everyone. Sure you could still take classes in english, but what about everything else?

You go to class mon-thursday ( if you want) and it is a cake walk. You can travel all you want on the weekends.



If you're looking to actually learn I got some spots for ya too.

GB12- I've actually been to Europe once before and was shocked at how many people spoke great English, so I'm not too concerned about getting around. Also most programs include a 3-4 week intensive language program at the start so you can learn enough things to get around town.

Titletown088- please do elaborate on whatever else you know or have advice on.

Everyone in europe speaks english unless you go to small towns in Italy/spain ect. Besides its fun to try and communicate in the vernacular language with the locals.

Well... I studied abroad in Rome for a year and loved it. I would probably go there or somewhere in Germany/Austria if I had the chance to go back. Let me know if you have any specific questions about any schools in Rome. I would know most. I am a double major too, history being one of them. And I went to school in rome strictly for history and Italian.
Girl wise I would rank the countries as follows.

1. Sweden
2 Italy
3. Germanic countries.
4. spain.

I'm not sure if you've ever been to Rome or not, but it is actually very easy to get around only on English. I've been to Spain and France, and Rome was probably the best city in terms of English, I didn't go to one restaurant that didn't speak English. Rome is also an awesome city.

I actually work at a study abroad office and have studied abroad myself. Honestly, I would do Europe. You will be traveling with the most other students and travel is easier in Europe than anywhere and you can see a ton of countries (I got to 9 during my semester). If not Europe, I would go to Japan (but only if you know Japanese, if not its really stupid) or Australia as it attracts a fair number of students and Australians are a good bunch to party with. Seriously tho, do Europe if its a full semester. You will be traveling with a ton of people and see the biggest landmarks in the world. The people generally speak English, travel is easy. They are on America's level (for the most part) technology wise, etc. You cant go wrong. If it was for just a winter or summer program (which are like 2-3 weeks) I would recommend something more exotic, but I have been to some exotic places and for an entire semester it would be hairy. Not even in the typical way......stuff like internet, phone issues, etc......

Yea I would most likely take mainly history courses (they seem to be commonly taught, an in English, at European universities) and also classes to fill some basic GE's

And as far as cities, I would go to Rome or Paris for my central location. I think they are the two cities with the most to do. More importantly tho, they are good central locations for travel.

*** Some people hate on Paris a lot btw, I personally loved it tho.

Its a program through the school. More specifically through the University of California school system. I am also leaning towards going for a whole year abroad as I feel like it would deepen the cultural experience, although a semester is definitely still in play. And Rome and Paris both would be nice, but I have already been to both and honestly I'm kind of looking for somewhere that isn't where a lot of people go (I feel like France and Italy are quite common). I've been looking a lot into Denmark and the Netherlands lately. Any advice or opinions on either of the two?

Where in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is tremendous, but for a whole year idk. I am sure other cities would be great, I have only been to Amsterdam tho. Ask Wicket. Denmark I have heard is really nice, but again and entire year there might be meh. I did a program where I spent 6 weeks each in Paris, Dublin and Rome and that worked for me. I liked the movement.

But, a year would be cool. Sounds like you have been all over Western Europe tho. In that case I would switch it up tbh. Either go somewhere you havent been in Europe (I assume Denmark fits) and use that location to explore new countries (Scandanavia region I would guess). Outside of Europe tho, if you have Japanese, I would go there hands down. Australia is also really awesome. India is an awesome country, I loved it, but I wouldnt go there for a semester. Other non European options that are awesome: Beunos Aires in Argentina and Brazilian cities. Africa is kinda tough, I would recommend it for a year altho it would be awesome for a winter or summer program (I will actually be heading to Egypt this winter).


*** Actually, Buenos Aires is an epic win. Strongly consider that if you want to go outside of Europe, but still be in a city with a European feel.
