Language Study at the University of Granada – by Saskia Scott

It was the end of my first month in Spain. I was in Madrid for the weekend, travelling alone. I decided to go to an Italian restaurant for dinner. I asked for a table for one, and was seated in the centre of the room, all the other tables had couples or groups speaking rapid […]

Semester Exchange at the University of Valencia – by Clare Smyth

“Living in a country where English is not a widely spoken language hasn’t always been easy, but being able to live in a country that not only gives me a chance to experience a different culture and way of living, but gain competence in a new language on top of that has made this experience […]

Exchange at Lund University – by Catrin Moller

I initially sat down to write a generic post about ‘my top tips for exchange’. This is important, but as I’ve watched all my friends leave Lund over the past few weeks to travel and then head back to their homes, it hit me what this experience has really done for all of us. Exchange […]

Semester Exchange at University College, Maastricht – by Mia Dalcollo

I attended the University College Maastricht in Maastricht, The Netherlands for the first half of 2014. Maastricht is a beautiful city and the Dutch people are incredibly welcoming and friendly. I felt Maastricht was a perfect fit for someone coming to Adelaide, as it was big enough to have everything you need (and more) but […]

Welcome to Sheffield Uni! – by Nathan Sexton

“I really loved the fact that at Sheffield the university lecturers also take the tutorials. This allowed me to develop a relationship with my lecturers who always knew my name whenever I came to them to discuss anything whether or not it had anything to do with the course.” To read Nathan’s whole post, check […]

Semester Exchange at Université Stendhal, Grenoble – by Ashleigh Chambers

It’s been a couple of weeks since my return from exchange from the day of writing, and I can say that in this time I have experienced the only negative aspect of going abroad to study. It is quite difficult to get back into the swing of things after having such an amazing time abroad, […]

Sun, Snow, Socialising and a bit of Skiing – by Georgina Watson

“Booking a place on the Nottingham Uni Ski Trip is something I was not intending on doing whilst packing my bags in Adelaide, but I’m more than glad I did. Last week, more than 500 Nottingham Uni students made their way to Val Thorens ski resort in the south-west of France where many good days […]

My Exchange Life at NUS – by Weijun Dong

First of all, I would say the life in Singapore is amazing. I applied the January intake in 2014. When I first arrive NUS, there is a welcome buddy waiting in Changi airport to pick you up. That’s the first time I communicate with local Singaporean, and he became my close friend later. I lived […]

After five months living in the United Kingdom as an exchange student, I can tell you that studying abroad is definitely the best decision you will ever make in your life.

A Year and 16,000km… – by Erin Murray

“10th May 2013, stands clear to me. I was in pain standing, while trying to soak up the happiness of seeing my favourite band live. It was through the solitude of that music and the joy of seeing that band live, which would linger as a highlight that would get me through the next few […]
