KIMBERLY DAVISON, Summer 2018 Participant
Going on a study abroad at the University of Utah was one of the best decisions I have ever made! EVERYONE should try to go on a study abroad during their time at the U. It is 100% worth it.

Summer 2018 Participant
life changing, amazing, a must do program.

Summer 2019 Participant
This Learning Abroad Program (Theatre, Humanities, and Fine Arts in London) is completely, without a single doubt, worth it!!

SARV RAAFATI, Summer 2019 Participant
This has to be one of the best study abroads offered through the university. The professors you travel with are some of the most welcoming and warm people to have with you. They have such a rich knowledge of the city that they will gladly give you suggestions. On top of this, they are fascinated to hear and learn about all the places you discover yourself. The classes are engaging and entertaining, the workload given is carefully planned as they understand that homework shouldn't be stopping you from exploring the city. The housing resides in one of the best points in the city, sitting across the road from Kensington Gardens, allowing you an area to go out and just read to get the homework done while still experiencing it all. There is no air conditioning in the house but it's easy to get by with opening a few windows. Overall this trip is a much do, its a carefully crafted experience with so much thought put in. This is one of the best ways I feel to experience the city and your summer studies.
