Exchange at Stellenbosch University – By Renee Farrow

Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa. What an amazing, beautiful country. I did my exchange here at Stellenbosch University, and I’m going to tell you how I fell in love with South Africa. Picture vineyards for as far as the eye can see, until you get to the majestic mountains surrounding everything. This is the view […]

Exchange at the University of Oslo – By Eliot Kirby

My Exchange So Far… My exchange to Norway started in August 2015 with me getting completely lost as soon as I got to the central station in Oslo. I was carrying all of my 25 kg’s of luggage in a rucksack and while I had thought I had gotten good directions as to how to […]

Exchange at the University of Exeter – By Ella Price

I began my year long exchange at Exeter university in mid September of this year. It’s safe to say I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the place. I left Adelaide at the start of July, however to travel for 10 weeks before arriving, which has so far been a major highlight and I’m really glad […]

Impressions of a Community Development Placement in Indonesia – By Tom Brown

Last year I spent five months on a student exchange in Indonesia. Most of my friends and relatives still don’t really know what I got up to over there, aside from taking photos of sunsets. I undertook the Development Studies Immersion Program through Australian Consortium for In Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS). This program involved two months […]

Exchange at the University of Copenhagen – By Karmen Heithersay

  The middle of my exchange is probably the point at which my housemates and I entered into what can only be called, a complete state of panic.  We miserably realised we only had 3 months left in both each other’s company and in Copenhagen, a beautiful city filled with even more beautiful people (honestly, […]

Exchange at the University of Leeds – By Alexandra Craddock

Nine times. That’s how many times I’ve had to hang up on my grandparents for ringing in the middle of a lecture. Nine times, I have had to explain the concept of time zones. Although the family back home in Adelaide may not have adjusted, I am happy to report that I’ve finally gotten into […]

Exchange at the University of Copenhagen – By Alice Croft

Where do I begin… I’ve nearly been living in Copenhagen for an entire year now, and I don’t think any words can give this year justice. I have been able to experience the most incredible things from living in the heart of a major European capital city, from travelling to Morocco in my summer holidays, […]

Exchange at the University of Oslo – By Molly McCormack

“Oslo… isn’t that the most expensive city in the world?” It was with this fear I arrived on a rainy summer day in August in the capital city of Norway, ready to start my semester abroad. I didn’t know anyone who had been on exchange in Oslo before, only equipped with anecdotes from friends who […]

Canada, eh? – By Sophie Seuk

How does one go about encapsulating and condensing an incredible 6-month journey into a mere 500 words? Even worse, how does one begin to do so without touching upon such overused clichés as – ‘it was the best experience of my life’, and ‘do it, you won’t regret it’? Inevitably, one cannot do such a thing with ease. Much […]
