Exchange to Maastricht University – by Edward Oppes

An International exchange is an experience, which is in the purest sense of the word, diverse. At different times I found myself studying with students from around the world, crossing the Sahara dessert on camelback, and hiking through the majestic Swiss Alps. Summarizing the entire 7-month journey is an impossible task, so I will attempt […]

Kansai Gaidai Exchange experience – by Joel Caddy

I spent two semesters abroad at Kansai Gaidai, situated half-way between Osaka and Kyoto, and close to the old capital, Nara in Japan. Kansai Gaidai is a grand university, with conservative but impressive buildings and a great reputation within Japan. Japanese and English subjects are taught, and classmates come from all over the world – […]

Exchange to Lund University – by Chloe Swift

It only felt like yesterday I was at Adelaide Airport saying goodbye to my friends and family but now seven months later I am on my way home after an amazing time away. I studied on exchange for five months at Lund University in Sweden which was one of the best experiences of my life. […]

Exchange to Aalto University – by Hamish Kellam

As it turns out, Finland happens to be the most underrated, amazing country I have had the pleasure of calling home. And that’s just what Finland will one day become for you too, if you happen to choose to do your exchange there: home. Finland is a place few have ventured, or much less even […]

Exchange to the University of Leeds – by Alice McKeough

In Semester 1, 2015, I travelled to Leeds to undertake a study abroad program at the University there. Although apprehensive, I was looking forward to experiencing winter and studying in the United Kingdom. When I arrived it was snowing, which was exciting, as I had never seen snow, but it was also freezing cold.  Leeds […]

Exchange to Maastricht University – by Vivian Kenny

Exchange is all fun and games. But it’s also not. That’s the only way I could describe my time…As a kid my dad would tell me stories of his exchange to California in 1973. He was a farm kid from Streaky Bay and his life, to use the infamous words of Will Smith, ‘got flipped-turned […]

Exchange to Pontifical Catholic University of Chile – by William Kenny-Roberts

I left for exchange to Chile having never travelled solo, and as the only student headed to South America from the University of Adelaide I had very little idea of what to expect but knew it would be a hugely beneficial but challenging experience. I’d also done very little in the way of planning but […]

5 things I brought back from Sweden – by Paige Le Cornu

I made the somewhat spontaneous decision to study abroad for a year in beautiful Gothenburg, Sweden. As you’ll hear from most people who have studied abroad, it was absolutely one of the best decisions I have ever made. I brought numerous things back with, more than just a dala horse, winter coats and a ghostly […]

Post-exchange reflections – by Ruby Wake

Leaving home for Maastricht, I was ambivalent. Since beginning university, I had told myself I’d go on an exchange….but after moving out of home at the end of first year, and traveling a little, I hadn’t managed to save enough money until my fifth year, when I was 23. Coming on this exchange was somewhat […]
