I really liked the program and the classes, but I felt like we weren't really in London. I wish we had been closer to the city so that we could have experienced more things. Getting into the city took time, and I feel like I didn't have enough time to do everything I wanted to do. Read more

I felt treated like a child most of the time. Our excursions often felt like high school field trips, with chaperones and rules and long bus rides. The Irish and Scottish tour guides we had were great. They were what made the experience meaningful, in my opinion. If you are a very independent, mature person with great leadership and social qualities, I would NOT recommend Summer in the British Isles. If you like people telling you what do to, wh... Read more

There were a lot of times, however, I questioned how exactly my money was being spent by CIS. Many of the other people on the trip with me requested detailed receipts, but never got one... Read more

"It's all apart of the experience" was literally our motto for this trip. It was our motto when things were going bad, and sometimes even when things were going good. It really was an experience, some parts good and some bad. I wouldn't trade what I learned here for the world. I might not have learned as much academically as I would've liked to, but I learned a lot of other things Read more

This was a great experience, and I have met some truly amazing people. However, there were a lot of problems a long the way. CIS was very unorganized throughout Scotland and London. Ireland was amazing and I wouldnt change a thing, except skip Belfast. Read more
