The End of a Fun Chapter – by Aaron Ou-Yang

“No matter where or what you do with your time, it is always the people that you’re with that makes the time good. It was sad to think that you will never see some of these awesome people again. But then, if you really want something, you will do anything to make it happen.” To […]

Exchange at Sciences Po, Paris – by Hugo Shaw

Returning to Adelaide after having spent the past seven months living in Paris was a relatively daunting experience.

Exchange to Newcastle University – by Nick Wilton

Over the last 6 months I have been on an exchange to Newcastle University. Over these last 6 months I learnt so much not just in academic but also just life in general. One of the most important thing I learnt was to budget as much as possible. It all started on the 18th of […]
