Global Learning Semesters

This program was a truly wonderful experience. Not only did I meet a group of lifelong girlfriends, I got to travel and see the world safely and comfortably with people who knew the cities and were able to provide us with invaluable guidance and information. I know I never would have expereinced traveling and living abroad so fully had it not been for GLS. Thanks!

Global Learning Semesters

Great area and great people: I recommend Spain and the Madrid area to all. Global Learning Semesters, however, could not have been worse. Terrible service, very high fees, no on-site support and a complete lack of programming. I felt taken advantage of, cheated and robbed. Avoid like the plague.

My semester in Cyprus with GLS was one of the best of my LIFE! The people couldn't have been cooler. I got matched with 4 really cool girls and we all still talk on a weekly basis, and visit each other all over the US-- did I mention that we were roommates 2 years ago? Well, these girls are still some of my best friends. Cyprus is really unique and although it's a little more expensive to travel out of Cyprus, it's FULLY worth it! The staff was really helpful and the trips they planned were great. I HIGHLY recommend GLS!

I felt dropped off with no support, unsafe neighborhood no where near the center of Paris. Program different from what website claimed.

The apartment situation is really a luck of the draw type thing; however, if you're unhappy with where you're staying/roommates or anything else they will switch you. The program has a few kinks to work out, but GLS really does bend over backwards to try and make you as happy as possible. You have to arrive within a given time frame to be picked up at the airport with the group, and you have to arrange your own transportation to the airport when you leave.
Hello! Can you please elaborate. Im thinking of applying to the program and would love your feedback. Did they not pick you up at the airport? Was your apt really far?

This program was a GREAT value for the money. I've traveled a lot, and I know how much this trip would have cost elsewhere. I learned so much.. not just "book" stuff, but so much hands-on experience. This was by far the best thing I could have done for my Veterinary application. Research wherever you choose to go so you are knowledgeable about the area... that way you know what to expect. It's not the companies fault if you don't do your own research.... besides, you'll get the most out of your trip. Not only would I recommend it, but I would come back as a TA.
