I absolutely fell in love with ASA as soon as I signed up. They are so helpful from step A to step Z, from getting you on the plane to your destination to making sure you get home safely. When I was in Spain I never once felt like I was out of the loop with anything that pertained to my study abroad experience. My site director was amazingly helpful, and to this day we keep in contact and I can't wait to go back and visit her and my host family! If I can give you one word of advice, if you are feeling skeptical about which company to travel with or which city will fit your needs best, contact ASA because they are outstanding people who are here to help you.

My home university did not have an affiliate for London, so I was uneasy with the whole process of studying abroad. I came across ASA and those feelings quickly changed. They helped with every detail regarding the whole process. They got me ready for my new home. I could email them a question, and I always got a response almost immediately. They were there every moment of the way. An ASA representative was even there to pick us up from the airport in London! It was a comforting feeling having them there, and showing us around our new city. Even while living in our new city, and attending our new host university, an ASA rep was always a quick email away. I highly recommend ASA to any prospective travelers! They helped make my amazing experience truly unforgettable.

Academic Studies Abroad could not have been a better program to choose for my semester abroad. They held my hand through the entire process of preparing for the experience, and they helped me with any questions that arose when I was overseas. Every ASA employee that I encountered was friendly and helpful. My group was small, and my site director became close friends with everyone. She was able to help me with all of my issues, such as overcoming the language barrier and which classes I should take. If you are a student planning to study abroad, I would highly recommend ASA.

This was the best experience of my life and I would recommend ASA to anyone that is thinking about a study abroad. Everyone with ASA is more than helpful and willing to talk you through the whole process. There is always someone there to make sure your time abroad is fun, safe, and educational.

As a student studying abroad, I couldn’t have been happier with Academic Studies Abroad. From the very beginning, everything went smoothly and according to plan. From the very beginning paperwork, housing and classes abroad to getting transcripts back to my home university, it was seamless. Our program director, Elena, was also absolutely fantastic. She helped us with anything we needed and truly went out of her way to make sure each one of us was comfortable with our host family, roommates, classes and was always letting us in on all the little secrets Barcelona had to offer. Our program was also quite small which I really enjoyed. With ten members in our group, it allowed us all to form friendships with each other and really learn on excursions. I would certainly recommend Academic Studies Abroad to anyone looking for a really personal experience abroad. I enjoyed it tremendously and would do it again in an instant!! Thanks ASA!
