  • Spending a semester in Budapest is the best decision I’ve ever made. The astounding BSME program has changed the way I think about math and education. The people I was able to meet have forever changed the way I think about myself and the world. More than anything, I am incredibly grateful for the friends I’ve made. And don’t think this is goodbye, I plan on returning to Hungary as soon as possible.
  • I really REALLY enjoyed this semester in the BSME program. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, whether you’ve already had experience teaching math, or if you are just interested in mathematics education. I have learned so much and have had countless opportunities to improve my teaching abilities and learn more about Hungarian education.
  • BSME was such a great opportunity and I am so sad to leave. I really enjoyed my classes this semester. They challenged me to think in new ways when it comes to math education, ways I had never considered before. I think it has been a really impactful experience for me that I will always remember.
  • My academic experience was amazing this semester. I could not have more good things to say about this program. I felt that I was definitely challenged academically, especially in having to prepare lesson plans. However, I now feel so much more confident in my teaching abilities, and I know I will carry the things I have learned here with me for the rest of my life.
  • I also met some of the most amazing people who are also passionate about education. And had the opportunity to explore Hungary and learn more deeply about a different culture than if I was a tourist. And I got to travel and experience other parts of Europe including Berlin, Barcelona, Stockholm, and Vienna with my friends in the program. I don’t know what more I could have asked for in a study abroad experience.  🙂
