Arriving in Southampton – By Claire Hale

I’m sorry Adelaide: I think I took the good weather with me! While everyone back home has been drenched in continual storms; we have had minimal rain here in the UK and I’ve had constant access to electricity. Southampton has been reaching between 18-25 degrees most days I have been here, with many sunny skies […]

University of Nottingham Exchange – By Anthony Cormack

I’m not much of a writer but here goes. My semester exchange to the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom came upon by studying a Bachelor of Commerce in International Business and Corporate Finance. Without the requirements of having to partake in a semester abroad, personally I don’t think I would have left Adelaide […]

Arrival in England- Jasmine Weisbrodt

Apparently heading to England in September meant glorious spring-style sunshine! My best way of describing Sheffield is as England’s own San Francisco, minus the coast. Every distance involves some variation of steepness, as the city is built on a ‘natural amphitheatre’ of hills (intro-week fun fact). I haven’t minded too much, as I’ve remained distracted […]

No fixed address – By Rachael Ingleton

On the night the rest of Australia filled in the Census (or tried to, as it turns out), I was sitting on a bus from Salzburg to Munich. For me, that seemed completely normal, and just a part of my everyday life. For most others, however, the idea that you can travel to a different […]

Exchange at the University of Birmingham – By Victoria Annells

Going on exchange was one of the craziest, scariest, but most exciting things I’ve done in my 20-something years. My year-long exchange was to the University of Birmingham, UK. As a duel citizen I took advantage of every opportunity I could. I visited more than 20 different cities in 13 countries. I found myself lost […]
