    im comsidering doing a year abroad during my degree (berlin is my top choice atm) however i cant decide between doing a year or a semester i would love to do a whole year i think it would be such an amazing experience however i am worried that coming back i would be a year behind everybody else and have to make friends again and stuff so now im leaning more towards just a semesterdoes any body have any experience/advice on this?

    It gives some of change and hope

    i know i wouldnt forget them! its that when i returned i would be in second year while they would be in their final year - so i would be a year behind and have to make new friends once they graduated
    im probably worrying about that too much thats why i was wondering about others experiences

    I studied abroad for one semester this year. It went so fast that I would have loved to have spent a whole year but my course wouldn't let me. Your time really will fly by, and I think you probably would get more out of your experience if you did a full year.

    However, I had an amazing experience for one semester and made a bunch of new friends abroad, and didn't have to take a year out of my uni course back home. If you're willing to put in the effort and throw yourself in headfirst, one semester can be worth it.
