The program was there 24/7 if you had any questions. The site director in Scotland was one of the kindest individuals I have ever met. She was always available and approachable regardless of the circumstance. The program included a group Highland trip
at the start of the semester. This trip was probably one of my fondest memories of my experience. My site director had a wealth of knowledge of Scotland, only enhancing the amazing tour guide we were provided with. The program built an approachable sense of community and the trip was a chance to strengthen our relationships. My flatmates went with another provider and did not have as many outings, lacked a sight director and did not receive much support. Many of the basic information CIS had provided before even leaving our hometowns wasn't provided to them until weeks into the experience. CISabroad made the application process and transition to a new country extremely easy. You will not regret working with this program, it really is worth the money because of the lasting support you are provided.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
